These are the easiest darn quilts to make AND the warmest, so why did I wait 1,5 and 10 years to finish them? Probably because I have made about 25.. And my entire family has their own rag quilt.
I just needed a fire under my butt...or a reason to make them...with a deadline! My quilt group is making rag quilts for a boys home and we told them what date we would give them the quilts. Nothing like a little incentive! I actually have 3 more weeks, but I am making 3 more so thought I better get crackin'. But I had to buy flannel for those.
It's a great time to make these..during our deep freeze. It was -17 Tuesday AM BEFORE the wind chill was factored in, it was -35 with the wind chill. Perfect time to be under a warm quilt, snipping seams. I do have to wash them yet, but will wait til I get them all done.
