Rag Quilt with all Minky Back

 Post by Tanya. This rag quilt is made of prints and solids from Glimma and some gray minky for the back. It is the leftover fabric from two tops that are in the to be quilted pile.

 I did larger squares, 8 1/2 in squares and all minky for back.  This is the first time have done the back in minky. This took hardly any time to sew or to cut.

The hardest pat of this quilt was washing/drying and trying to get it to start ragging.  Quilt store quality cotton does not fray as easily as flannel or lower thread count fabric.  

Hope you are having a great 4th of July.  Here are some pictures of our younger kids at bike parade and community breakfast, now to get some sewing in before fireworks.

Julia thought it would be more fun to push stroller than ride in it.

Love the colours, sadly minky doesnt fray, but I find if using cottons for a rag quilt I do a smaller seam and closer snips and it rags up beautifully :)

Really awesome rag quilt. I haven't made one, although seeing this I'm getting more tempted. Great job!
