A Raggy Quilt

I've had a lovely weekend finishing up a 'raggy' quilt for an expectant friend.  We don't know if they're having a boy or girl so I hope these colours are unisex enough for them.  My fave is the little bird print.  So cute.

Raggy quilts are usually made from soft warm flannel with wadding inside, but as this quilt will be going to a hot climate, I've made it from quilting cotton with 100% cotton flannel inside.  Hopefully it'll be cooler than flannel and suitable to be repeatedly machine washed.


 Trying to sort out the arrangement of squares so no two similar prints are side by side.

Remembering to keep the seams on the outside was easier said than done....yes I did have to do a bit of unpicking!

The finished blankie shown on a double bed to get an idea of size.  It's just small, square and portable so mum and dad can toss it in the car or put it on the floor for their bubba.

Love the way the trimmed edges ruffle up in the wash.  So soft and snuggly.

Aren't those birds cute?
