We have been sewing up rag quilts around here. All five of our children have their very own rag quilt now. The two older girls sewed up their own and I sewed up the ones for younger ones. I have enjoyed sewing them too. They are so nice and cozy, baby just loves hers!
Like I mentioned in this post, I got the idea and instructions from Seasons At Home, summer issue. What makes these quilts neat, is that the seams are on the top, so after you sew it all together, you clip the seams every 1/4 inch, then wash and dry it which then gives it the ruffled look.
Here is S. sewing on her quilt. We have a sewing class for a number of girls in our circle of friends, the last project we did was a rag quilt, all the girls had a very enjoyable time.
R. sewing on her quilt with the help of Oma (Grandma)
I think she would like to give sewing a try!
Our finished quilts. Our three year old did not want to be in the picture,
so baby is sitting on his quilt, which is folded in half.
