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!
