For Christmas 2014 I made this twin-sized rag quilt for my granddaughter, Tori. Click on the individual images for a much larger view. Tori loves it, she also likes to take it into the living room to snuggle under while she watches television. Perhaps I should name them ‘snuggle quilts’ instead of rag quilts.
In these types of rag quilts you need to concern yourself with the overall layout of the quilt colors to insure you have a consistent design without colors bumping into each other. This process takes sometimes an hour or more to get that ‘just right’ look to it before you start assembling them into the completed rag quilt.
