A Fun DrEAMI Project

I was sorting through some bins and drawers looking for my little stash of orphan blocks to find one for the SAHRR.

Instead I found this sweet stack of fun flannels prints and Samantha told me I just had to do something with it.

Cutting, layering fabric and batting and some stitching happened rather quickly.

Next thing I knew I had it all put together. Here are photos of the front and back of the piece.

Then it was time to start the dreading snipping.

Here it is all finished, ready to be run through the washing machine to make it soft and cuddly.

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Hi Carol! I’ve made two of these types of quilts. One was denim and flannel and was one heavy mother. My friend gave me a special scissors to use to clip the seams – I hope you had one of those where the handles are spring loaded. It helped a lot with all the clipping. This will get better and better with each and every washing. It’s very cute and cuddly already. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Roseanne. Thanks for your comment. It’s always fun to hear of others adventures making the same quilt. This is a fun quilt to make. As you say it just get cuddlier and softer with each washing. I do have the spring loaded clippers because I have made quite a few of these quilts over the years. Next one (someday) will be denim and flannel and will be a cathedral windows quilt using some old shirts. 😉

  2. Hi Carol, pretty fabrics and so cozy and soft. I’ve never seen that cutting technique on the edges…what it the name? Very interesting.

    1. Thank you Jocelyn. The technique is just called a raggy quilt as far as I know. It is a perfect quilt because it gets softer from washing and the little snipped bits make a fuzzy ridge. It’s perfect for fidgeting with so I’ve made them for wee ones and for lap quilts for some charities. You just sew the blocks together with a wider seam allowance so you can snip but the blocks are still secure. I teach this as one of my first classes for beginner quilters since it is very forgiving. 😉

    1. Thank you Sandra. Denim and flannel (old shirts) will be the next raggy quilt I make using old flannel shirts from my Dad, my Ex and myself. Someday but not too soon since I want to do a Cathedral Window pattern. Whoever invented the spring loaded clippers was a genius. 😉

    1. Hi Kathleen. It was a cuddly finish. Luckily I have some spring loaded clippers to make it easier to snip the seams. I finished it while watching a football game so it wasn’t too bad 😉

  3. This is darling! I’ve not seen one of these, and now I want to make one. I think my grands would love it, heck we’d love it too! Do you have a tutorial somewhere on your blog? Do you quilt it before or after you snip?
