T's Flannel Rag Quilt

T's Flannel Rag Quilt

Making a rag quilt for my grandson
Seems he likes his dad's so much he hijacked it.
So he needs one of his own.
T picked most of the fabrics, some came from my stash.
Half done here.

Using the Accuquit for cutting all the pieces. 
Each block has 3 layers of flannel, 2  orange and one  print.

 Placing the fabric and cutting 4 at a time

The die cuts the fringe, much easier then using scissors.  
Enough on each cutting for 2 blocks.
Some of the prints we are using

Each block is sewn with an X which is the only quilting
 holding the quilt together.

Sewing the X in chain fashion
One of two stacks of sewn blocks. 
Adding some embroidery to a few of the blocks

Have been working on getting the rows together 8 done
8 to go.  This should be a cozy quilt.
T loves all things hunting, can you tell.
My design wall will only hold half of this queen quilt.

How wonderful that is! I love that you're embroidering on some. That die cutter is certainly saving your wrists! Do you treat the fabric with anything, or just cut it as it comes?

Hi Susan;
Yes, the cutter is helpful. It still requires rolling it through which is a bit hard as well, but I don't have to cut all that fringe. No, no special treatment of the fabric, there is some waste though which is hard to accept. I was able to save some by cutting parts off to keep some strips. I am getting to the heavy work, joining the rows, these rag quilts are heavy to work with and then there is the flannel dust. LOL. But no longarm work or binding.
