Rag Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? At age 51, I purchased my first sewing machine about 6 weeks ago and I am teaching myself to sew. I absolutely love it! This is my first start-to-finish quilt and I can't believe how great it turned out. The girls at work can't believe I am a newbie to sewing...neither can I! I will be making many more of these. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be careful when you are snipping the edges on the quilt. I snipped a bit too far in a few places and had to re-sew a few seams that came loose after washing/drying it.

What you will need

  • flannel

Q&A with Vicki Walker

DonnaPr asked:
I love how dramatic it looks.
Vicki Walker answered:
Donna, this really the ideal first quilt. It is an easy and very forgiving pattern. Don't worry about having perfect. I added the two borders to my quilt as I wanted a large size. Please post a photo of your first quilt. I'd love to see it!
