3 rag quilts done!

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.

Well done, there is nothing like a deadline to get you cracking. I work the same way.

Great job! I made some of those a few years ago. They wash and dry really good, and they are also warm.

Rag quilts are so well loved so I'm sure the boys will be happy to snuggle under them.
