Has anyone not made a rag quilt? (I have actually made two which is suprising because they both were a pain in the arse - not to mention wrist/thumb.) I was behind the craze... (I was behind the Millenium charm quilt craze too... Still need to finish trimming them down...)
Here she is my little girl, Rhapsody, on the rag quilt. This quilt is an official couch throw.
It is black & white with randomly scattered appliqued stars. I used a cheap white flannel for the middle layer inlieu of specially cut pieces of batting.
Here is the back - funky flower garden. On the front in the seams, you can see a little of thes color peeking through. Which is fairly striking against the black & white flannels.
I don't know how it happened, but overall the quilt is rather narrow - hence its couch designation.
Since this was my second rag quilt, I did the clipping during my lunch hour at work over several months instead of a marathon session that landed me in physical therapy I still have joint issues in that thumb - a decade of cashiering in a grocery store is the main culprit, but clipping flannel did not help.
My first one was bigger & I donated it to charity. (The colors were similar - I used purples & greens & Trip Around the World layout.)
I used the scraps from this one in a baby quilt - it is in my gift pile. I used the scraps from my first one in a baby quilt too & sent that one to my cousin in Washington State when she had a baby.
Now I use flannel on backs...
