    My latest creation......

    This is Raggedy Hearts......
    I have made rag quilts before but they have always been made with flannel. This is the first cotton one and I like the way it turned out. I appliqued hearts to every other square......

        Very pretty. Did you use batting in this one?

        Before you speak,
        T - is it TRUE?
        H - is it HELPFUL?
        I - is it INSPIRING?
        N - is it NECESSARY?
        K - is it KIND?

            Hi Karen ....thank you .
            Yes I did use batting .... I made the cotton squares 6 1/2" and cut the batting smaller so it wouldn't get caught in the seams. I cut it about 5". This made the seams easier to sew and I didn't have batting to deal with. I did stitch an X on the blocks I didn't have a heart applique on ... to hold the batting in place.

            Thank you too Loulou.... please don't be afraid of a rag quilt. It is the easiest by far. Here are a couple of tutorials.... the first one is Jenny's baby quilt.

            and here is one by Beverly's Fabrics.

                OH thank you Patti....
                I decided to just do raw edge applique and it was fun. I'm already planning another one.

                  Beautiful Mia! I have never tried a raggedy quilt but it looks like fun to do. I will have to put that on my bucket list.
