Pink Rag Quilt
When Miss N was a week old I went to a easy quilt class at church. Using flannel squares to make a quilt. I wanted one! Lucky for me I was gifted a few flannel baby blankies. I like to use really big blankies to wrap my babies in, as they wiggle out of those tiny 80cm baby blankets.
So I decided to cut them up and use them for this quilt so I can still keep them - just in another form :)
Cut 25 squares of printed flannel of choice. You also need 25 white squares for the middle and 25 plain squares for the back
Place 3 together with good sides facing out
Sew a X through the middle of the 3 pieces
Keep going until you do all 25 squares
Lay out your 25 squares in desired pattern
Sew 5 squares into rows with seams facing up/outwards
Sew the 5 rows together
Sew around entire quilt
Cut the seams and edges at around 1-2cm intervals all over
Wash and dry several times for raggy look
Thanks to Amanda for her help in cutting the squares and teaching me how to do this quilt - I LOVE IT! It really was easy to sew.
