Baby Rag Quilt

My quilt group met on Monday, and finally I had something to add to the pile of baby quilts we are making this year. It was a very simple rag quilt, but it's the very first one I've ever made, and it's done, so I'm satisfied.


I used a grey and pink homespun flannel paired with a cute baby print flannel that was in a basket of fabric from my mother-in-law. My mother-in-law loved children so I think she would approve of her fabric going into a quilt to be donated to a family in need.

And other baby quilt completions:


Brenda made this from some string pieced cut-offs from a previous project--just added a border and it was perfect for a baby size.


This was also Brenda's handiwork. She did some lovely machine quilting on the white squares.

  3. Thanks for stopping by Sheila and Susan! A baby size rag quilt was a good way to try out this style for me--not too overwhelming!
