Hunter’s Rag Quilt

flannel rag quilt Today’s quilt is even easier than yesterday’s chevron version. While that one took me about 10 hours, this one took less than half that. It’s the exact same process, but instead of cutting and sewing zigzags, I did it with straight lines.

This one is the closest to a full-size throw. While I messed up with puckering and alignment on the chevron version, causing me to cut off a significant amount of length and width, the straight lines were so much easier. It’s 44″ wide and 60″ long. Perfect for a growing boy!

We stopped by Charlie’s baby boyfriend Hunter’s house last night to drop it off, and it seems it was a big hit. If big hits are measured by how enthusiastically he shoved it into his mouth ;)

I’m so in love with these flannel patterns. Very “boy-ish” while still staying subtle. No planes/trucks/cars all over it. The camo may be my favorite though!

I’m super in love with these rag quilts. I think it’s going to be a go-to method for the future. They’re fun and personalized, while being really easy to do! Plus I can indulge in my love of loud patterns.

If you’d like to see a tutorial on how to make your own rag quilt throw, you can check out one I wrote here. The design is slightly different, but the method is the same.
