Rag Quilt Explosion on Whats on the Quilting Table #18


Many weeks back, Tanya and I sat down and decided that we were going to cut up all the bolts of flannel that we have and make rag quilt kits.  That  way we can easily grab a bag and me and the kids could put together a fast quilt..


When I first sat down to cut, I did not comprehend the amount of flannel that we had to cut.  It took me a entire Saturday afternoon and part of Sunday to finish cutting.


When all was said and done we had a huge pile of prospective quilts.


I am not sure of the final number, but more then 30 quilts will be made out of this pile.  They are all cut out and I just need to cut batting, Sew some X and then the rows together and presto another quilt.


Oh ya, then make Tanya snip all the edges.  It might take us months to get this pile dented.

This is exactly the place and time for the go cutter large rag quilt die (I am not a seller...just a lover of the go cutter). I have thought about buying that die and looking at your piles of flannel and mine.... I just might. I have enough for about four scrappy flannel rag quilts ...too much to cut around the edges. Might just hit the quilt store again!

Just think of all the cuddle value in that pile!!! Wonderful.
