The Rag Quilt


Happy Monday.  I have taken on a rather ambitious project for me.  I am making my daughter a rag quilt for when she moves into her toddler bed.  After some searching I realized there is not a lot of toddler bedding unless of course you want character bedding (which I don’t, and she hasn’t gotten into anything yet).  So after reading another person’s blog about doing a rag quilt, I look up the information and decided I could handle that, after all there is no binding which is what always put a stop to my  past quilting projects.  I spent a couple hours yesterday cutting the squares from the fabric I already have.  I still need to get a few more fabrics as well as more flannel.  I will keep you all posted on the progress of this project.  
DSCN2626The inspiration fabric.  I have had my eye on this fabric for years but never had a project for it, and lavender seems to be dd’s favorite color.
DSCN2628 The rest of the fabrics and flannel, for the flannel I have a combination of light pink, lavender, and white. I think I have about half of the squares cut.
I would glad for any tips that you might have to share.

I've made a denim/flannel rag quilt for my son along with nieces & nephews. I enjoyed using denim as backing so I didn't need to cut batting! used old jeans for the denim & could transition to pre-teen easily enough. Cute fabrics!
ps- thanks for visiting my blog!
