This has actually been a pretty productive couple of weeks for me. Not necessarily at work (well not at all at work - maybe pregnancy brain?), but in my sewing world. I have quite a few finishes to show over the next few days, the first being a quick and easy rag quilt I made for baby girl.
I used the fabulously easy tutorial and instructions found here, which uses 3 flannels. I used all batting scraps and $2.79/yard flannel from Joann's (yay Memorial Day sale!), so all in all this was a quick and cheap little quilt. It's nice and thick and should make a great playmat/quilt for our daughter. But the best part of this, aside from the easiness and the low cost, was not having to baste!
These first 2 pics are before washing, after the seams are all clipped.
I like the smoothness of the back.
While the baby is really little, we can use this side for tummy time and not have to worry about "fuzzies".
After washing - all crinkly and raggy!
I used flannel because it ravels so well, but you could probably use cotton on one side, and even skip the batting to make a lighter quilt as it is pretty heavy. This is a great project for using up batting scraps, and I love the bright and fun colors!
