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!
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.
