I now think the hardest part of making a quilt is finding five to six coordinating fabrics that you want to put together to make your quilt. I probably spent a good two hours at the fabric store trying to find the right fabrics. In the end I did, I went with a Brown/Pink theme (since she's having a girl), I found the cutest pig and baby girl word fabric that I paired with some polka dots and stripes. I also bought a rotary cutter and micro-tip easy action scissors, these are essential for making a rag quilt.
Once I had my fabric and tools I went on YouTube and found the greatest video that explains step by step how to make a rag quilt, I understood the basics from what my friend told me but wanted something to refer back to as I was sewing. You can find the video here: Beverly's How-To.
And here is my finished product:
|Back - Minky & Flannel patches|
|Close Up of Front|
I also made a matching "Taggie", post coming soon.
If you love these Rag Quilts as much as I do my friend sells hers on Etsy, they are super cute!!! Check out her shop here: Little Shop Of Moxi
