Stripey Rag Quilt

I saw a pack of 6 flannel fat quarters on sale the other day so I picked up 2 of them.  I made this cute rag quilt for Emma last weekend.  I wanted to use as much of the fat quarter as possible so I decided to cut them into strips.  Then I cut the strips into a few different sizes and laid it out.  

The front and back are exactly the same.  My son helped me by pulling it off the design wall and finding it's match.  I sewed them together, no batting on this quilt.  My daughter cut all the edges for me.  I finished my part in about an hour.   The quilt really needed 8 fat quarters for each side so the size of quilt is a little off. But when I used it yesterday to cover Emma while I rocked her, it was actually a good fit.  

 Needs another washing to make the edges look better, but I am loving the softness of it!

  1. Lucky Emma! Kudos to daughter - Cutting the edges is the hardest part of making this quilt. I have also used another layer of flannel in the middle to give the edges a added bit of color. Never thought of making one out of strips, mine have always been made with squares. Thanks for sharing.
