Raggedy Perfection!

This lap blanket is so homespun soft and wonderful! 
It was cut with the Accuquilt die for an 8 1'2" rag block.
I used a fat quarter bundle of homespun plaid fabrics.
I used 1 1/2 yards of the same type of fabric for the backing blocks.
It turned out so well, I will be making another and another!  
This one is 34" x 48".
You can see the wonderful fringe that results from the four layers of fabric.
The embroidery worked out great for the quilting motif for each block, too!
I will tell you-
there is a LOT of lint after washing and drying this blanket!
I have heard of people adding lint to their wool batts for texture-
now I understand how that could work! lol

  1. Pretty...I love the "messy" of the fringe against the "neat" of the fabric!

  4. Nice! I know several people who make these and always go to a laundromat to wash and dry them because of all the strings and lint.

  5. That's lovely! I love the quilting in the middle of the block. When Mom and the girls made them,they just left theirs plain, but this adds such a nice touch!

  6. Very pretty! I've heard of putting lint out in the Spring for birds -- they use it in their nests.
