Rag Quilts are for insane people!

So count me in....this was the most tedious project I've done yet....and it about killed me....not really...it's my own fault. I took one day to cut it all and to put it all together....then the next two days to cut the back up. It's awesome so here's the breakdown.


So here's all the material I cut up!!! 6 hours of cutting to be exact...............woah.


Here are my little sandwiches that you have to assemble. A top a middle and a bottom! There is green flannel in the middle....


Next I had to figure out my pattern for my four block.....it sounds easy enough....but you're doing what they called backwards sewing...and that's way more difficult than you think......LOL


That's my little demon helper there in the picture...boy did she have fun...and she was pretty cute doing it.....lol



Then you sew all of those squares together with the solid squares and you get this!



Last but not least you sew all of those strips together and get the almost finished product......

After cutting the back of your quilt to shreds and washing and drying it....you come out with this beautiful rag quilt...pure craziness....and probably the best project yet!!
In other news.....I finished Madi's Scrubs...they are perfect! and I finished my desk!! It's almost perfect too!! I'll leave you with a pic of my little princess in her new scrubs!!! I can't wait for Halloween!!!
I love them....................

Oh my! It looks wonderful. I received one of these as a gift and loved it so much I thought about making one myself. Not anymore! Now I know just how much work that is!

That's a fabulous quilt! It's a big project to take on, but you did a wonderful job. I bet it's soft and cozy too. :)
