DIY Flannel Baby Raq Quilt

Last year, I made about 5 large rag quilts. I never posted about them because when I was done, I was done.  There was fluff everywhere!   I never thought I'd be making another rag quilt until I found out that my cousin and his wife were expecting their first baby (a boy!).  I love the idea of making something that could be a keepsake.

I played around with the flannel bolts at Fabricland until I found some designs that I liked.

Cut cut cut

What's the best combination? 

All sewn and it's time to bind it all up!

I snipped the edges using my Fiskars spring loaded scissors.  Best $12 I've ever spent!

I tossed it in the wash/dryer twice using the delicate cycle.  The front is ragged and the back is smooth.  This gives them some choice as to which side to use.

 I made sure to find some "Canadiana" prints.

And tested it out with the stuffies.

Mr. Octopus won some alone time on the quilt.

I included some care instructions for the quilt and some toy leashes for when baby boy is a little older.

The baby shower was in December so I couldn't post any pics at the time.  Check out the oversized Christmas ornament on the neighbour's front lawn.  Pretty cool!
