This is a great beginner quilt since it’s so easy. If making a quilt intimidates you like it first did me, then start off by making this one…that’s what I did and now I’m making more complicated quilts. I think it’s just a matter of starting somewhere and I can’t think of a better thing to start with!
There is something special about snuggling under your favorite blanket and watching a movie, reading a book, or taking a nap. Most of my kids have their favorite blanket but my daughter has been asking me to make a quilt just for her. She has a quilt that her Grandma made her when she was born, but that poor thing is barely a blanket anymore. it is full of holes and I am pretty sure there isn’t an ounce of batting left in it. That quilt has been very well loved.
It is only fair that my daughter has a favorite blanket to snuggle too, so I pulled out my sewing machine and got to work. She was so excited when I finished it. I never thought I’d see such a proud look on her face!
Whether you’re looking for a gift to make or just a cozy quilt, this rag quilt is the perfect solution! I’ve made a few of these. I gave one as a gift and the friend I gave it to acted like I gave her a bar of gold! Giving something that is handmade, like this, truly touches hearts.
Watch how Erica Arndt makes this great quilt in her step by step tutorial so you can get started making your cozy rag quilt!
