Rag Quilt Recap


This rag quilt I made this spring.  It was for my best friend who lives down in Tennessee.  She's a country girl, and loves anything cowgirl and country.  This project made a little dent in my stash of scrap fabric.  It was a lot of fun to make!  The fraying of the edges wasn't too difficult either.  You keep the seams on the front of the quilt, then take a scissors and chop them about every fourth of an inch.  Then I threw it in the washer, then in the dryer, with many stops to empty the lint tray.  I love how it turned out.....better yet, my friend absolutely loved how it turned out too!  :)


The cowboy boot in the center of the quilt is an applique piece....or should I say pieces.  I got the pattern from a "Boot Bash" block of the month going on over at Molly's Place.
If you like cowboy boots you have to head over there and check out her beautiful boot applique patterns!!!


It was fun, and even better to see the look on my friend's face when she opened her present!
Any of you ever made  a rag quilt?  Tell me about your experience!
