Sweet Girly Rag Quilt

It seems like every woman I know lately is having a baby!  So, I am so thankful that earlier this year I learned how to make rag quilts.  They really are so easy, and perfect for novice sewers, like myself.  This is the 3rd one I have made and I am always amazed at how quick they come together.  They are also a lot of fun!  So, give it a try!  I do not have a tutorial for this, but there are many good ones on the internet.  I did not learn from one particular place or I would link up a specific blogger.  I just researched, took notes here and there and then just went for it.

 The front is fleece.


The back is cotton.   I was nervous about this backing, because it was not what I had planned to use.  However, I think it turned out very sweet looking.  :)

I'll also show you the two other rag quilts I have made.


I just used a plain white sheet for the back.  I love using sheet material for the back because it feels so cool to the touch.

Lastly I made a doll rag quilt for one of my daughters.


For this one I added polyester batting in the middle so  I had to sew an X on each square before piecing in order to quilt the 3 layers together.  For the first 2 quilts I showed you, I did not use any batting between the front and back layers. 

So, that's it!  I'll be making many more of these in the future. :)  Feel free to ask me any questions about these quilts.   If anyone would like me to do a tutorial for a rag quilt, I would love to do one!
