Richard has a cousin with a kid about Jared's age ie 10 that wanted to make a quilt .
He had the idea of recycling old flag
We decided on a blue flannel for the back.
We added some off white to round out the quilt.
The squares were 5 inch instead of our normal 6.
He helped to sew x's while Richard sewed them together to form the rows.
Picture of the finished quilt.
We got it done all in one Saturday. We washed it, although we sent it home wet. We know what to expect with a rag quilt and didn't want to clog his families washing machine. We went back to the traditional non high-efficiency washing machine about a month ago. Too many problems, with all our rag quilts and kids not checking pockets.
