Rags on the Brain

Rags on the Brain post image

This is my second-ever rag quilt. Can you tell it’s designed for a little girl? It felt very satisfying to use up just about all of the pink fabric I had lying around the studio. There’s something wonderful about using things up. It makes me feel so virtuous.

I’m also really liking the rag quilt technique. You can be a crummy cutter (that’s me!), lousy at sewing straight lines (me again), and lazy about pinning and squaring up (yes, me), and it still comes out looking great.

    The “rag” ends give it such a nubbly texture.
