How To Make A Christmas Rag Quilt (Fast!)
"How To Make A Christmas Rag Quilt (Fast!)... A perfect Christmas rag quilt for gifting or for yourself. What makes a perfect Christmas rag quilt? My definition is that it must be a quick and easy finish. Time is limited around the holidays, and we may not have the time for an intricate pattern requiring another fabric purchase. Here’s a solution I think you’ll appreciate!
How to make a Christmas rag quilt in a hurry? First, use what you already have on hand. Pull out your holiday fabric stash and scraps to see what you have to work with. Then determine what size block will work best using my tips below. Make sure you have some flannel! This will not only be your biggest time saver but will also produce a fabulous finish. You don’t need to spend a fortune.
The flannel for this quilt was on sale. It’s thin which makes it perfect for what we need. Since we’ll be using two flannel layers, a lighter-weight flannel will work best. Lastly, rethink how you will assemble your rag quilt blocks. Yes, a traditional grid goes together very quickly and easily, but with a slight alteration, you can also eliminate any matching seams. Get all the details including a downloadable pattern at the link provided. Thanks for checking out my rag quilt!"
