    Flannel Baby Rag Quilt

    Hi Everybody! I'm a newbie here and excited to see everyone's projects and learn some neat tips for quilting. I have sewn clothes for many years but am new to quilting. I recently made my first rag quilt as a baby gift and thought it was a ton of fun! I used the leftover blocks and remnants to make a few baby accessory items to match.

    I am now working on my first pieced quilt wall hanging and it is coming along much slower! Definitely learning how important an accurate cut piece is to the final outcome. Need to practice more with my new rulers and rotary cutters. Love all the cool videos on this site and seeing so many projects I want to try!

    Sewbee, those all look wonderful! I love the fabrics you used, and your raggy edges look soft and fluffy. What patterns did you use for your accessories? I think it's such a cute set.
    I have always wanted a rag quilt for myself, and still have the flannels I bought, and I need to get them out and work on it, would make quite a bit of room in the closet for more stash!
    I almost didn't try quilting again because of issues with rotary cutting. But am happy to say it's going better than I could have hoped for so I don't dread having to cut fabric now.

      Hi Lola. I only used a pattern for the hat. I used spare blocks for the pillow sham top and embroidered the baby's name on the center square. Added the pillow sham back covering using the gingham flannel with an opening for inserting the pillow. The wash cloths were just 2 flannel squares serged together, no batting in the middle. The diaper pad was a mini rag quilt that I used poly batting inside and then did some random machine quilting patterns to make it puff up a little more.

      You should definitely pull out your flannel and give it a try! It really was a fun project and after all the cutting was done it went very fast. I bought enough flannel for 3 more different quilt projects and want to get back to those soon. I'm just determined to get this pieced wall hanging done first!

        Sewbee, I did make one about 5-6 yrs ago for a greatniece and just loved it. I just haven't taken the time to make mine! I think I will get it out soon and get it started, winter is heading this way and I am always cold!
        I thought that looked like serged edges, but wasn't sure exactly what they were, but what a great idea for flannel washcloths. Well, your whole set is a great idea!

            Hi Lisa. The quilt is 7 rows long. I cut 8" squares but after sewing 0.5" seams the finished squares are 7" each, so the finished quilt was approx. 35" wide x 49" long. I had to cut 105 squares total for the quilt...35 each for the front, back and middle batting flannel. I then cut more with the remaining fabric so I could make the additional items.

            A Christmas rag quilt sounds great. Warm and cozy!
