Rag Time Quilt #1

I made this Rag Time quilt when I was living in Phoenix about 8 years ago. I spent many months picking out the perfect flannels to go together. If I am right, I bought the majority of the fabrics in this quilt at Zoe’s Truck. (To this day one of the best quilt shops in Phoenix. Which has since closed. Whamp. Whamp. Whamp. I focused on blues and reds and am really happy with the way it turned out. This is the perfect multi-use quilt. Take it on a picnic, take it on a trip, or keep it at the foot of the bed; it will always fit right in. It is also machine washable and the nice thing is that it gets better as it is washed.

The pattern is from Quilt Country and is an easy make. The hardest part of the quilt is the edge cutting but it is not really hard, just time consuming. So if you want the perfect project to work on while watching TV, this is it. I have made many different Ragtime quilts over the years. I think, maybe 6 in total. They make the best present because they are so soft to snuggle up to.

My secret is that I like to buy flannel sheet sets when then they go on sale after Christmas. That way you can get a lot of yardage at a great price.

I love this pattern. And I would love to see what you did with it. Show me how you made your Ragtime quilt by sending pictures or a link for the quilt to
