Rag Quilt




I made a rag quilt for a freind's birthday. I'm pleased with it, but wonder if I should have put Xs in all the squares. I've had conflicting advice. At JoAnn Fabric I was told that since I have flannel in the middle layer, it won't shift...no need to quilt. I joined the Millington Quilt group last week. Some of the ladies had made rag quilts for charity, they thought the squares should be quilted. I ran out of fabric and had to go back to Ebay to buy some more coordinating fabric. That's why the top and bottom rows are a little different.

That is one beautiful quilt.
I was always told when or if I make one to quilt in the squares also. But I have no idea what is the right way. But I think you have done a wonderful job!!!

Cannot wait for our class to start!
