What are you most proud of? The "X" rectangles replicate the crossbones and I thought that the end result looked cool. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Jump in and sew. Rag quilts are fast and easy to make. I used a generous 1/2" seam to sew the blocks together. This allowed me an extra bit of room so that I didn't cut the stitches when I began to snip the ragging.
