Birch + Rag Quilts

Eye Candy Rag Quilts

I'm drawn to the juxtaposition of rag quilts made with modern prints.  Rag quilts seem timeless and when mixed with contemporary designs have such panache...I love them!  

These quilts remind me of when my boys were younger and their little fingers would play with the tags and soft edges of blankets.  A rag quilt's construction creates an inviting tactile quality that seems so wonderful for little ones to play with and enjoy.

Here are some gorgeous Rag Quilts that we found, and wanted to share.

I'd love to see someone make a Rag Quilt with our fabrics...any takers?

Enjoy,

  3. Why not? I do like to make rag quilts..Ok I have only made one but it was a ton of fun to do and it was well received too. I would like to try chenille work too, maybe work the two together. Ragging feels soft to the touch and it looks friendly and relaxed!

  4. I've made loads of these! They are popular baby gifts. Anything bigger is a real pain though :) all the clipping...They'd look really cute with your fabrics for sure.

  5. What a coincidence! Or a timely post, rather. I'm gathering fabric for my first-ever rag quilt! Up until now I've only made a charm quilt and a railroad quilt with my Gma. I'm going to make a robot rag quilt for my 7 month old son; too bad I didn't win the Circa 52 giveaway, I wanted your rocket/robot fabric so badly for my quilt!
