Rag Quilt

Well, this is a week later than I planned.  Last week it was a sick kid that kept me from finishing, this week, it is my own sick kid that kept me from finishing.  Let me tell you, there is nothing that makes you feel more helpless than when your child is very sick and you cannot do anything but call the doc in the middle of the night.  Of course, then you find out that you are doing all you can, and the doc says to bring them in in the morning.  I felt bad, after all it was 1:30 AM when I called, but I was glad in the end that I did.  Anyhow, now that you know all my excuses, here is the quilt I made and promised to show you a week and a half ago.

I think I've mentioned a few times that I have two new nieces.  For my newest niece, my sister requested that I make her a rag quilt.  Lois (the middle sister) went through my stash and picked out some fabrics, then added to them with some of her own.  The thing I love about a rag quilt, is that it is always so soft and cozy, it makes you want to curl up and enjoy the comfort. 

I love how colorful this quilt is.  Little Josephine will not lack for bright colorful patterns to help her little eyes grow strong!! 

I love how it turned out!  This is probably one of the easiest quilts to make, if you are interested in making one just Google Rag Quilts and you will find lots of different ways to make them. These are so great to snuggle with on a cold day.  I made one for my Little Monkey and she still sleeps with it almost every night, it is still warm and cozy and "snuzzly" as she says.



  1. Absolutely gorgeous! I love the colors and fabric patterns! Mom and baby are sure to love it!
