Getting girly with Rag Quilts.

I have been dreaming of quilting, but I am more than a little intimidated.  So when I found a video on you tube with instructions for making  a rag quilt I was thrilled.  It didn't sound too horrible so I gave it a whirl.  I keep an almost two year old girl who I live vicariously through.   As Mom of three boys it is too much fun to play with a little girl.  So we had to make a quick trip to Hobby Lobby to pick out fabrics.  Here is the finished product.

We even chose black minke for the backing.  I love how soft it is!

I think she likes it.  She climbed right under it with her best buddy Mickey Mouse.

Just one more picture because she is just sooooo cute.  :)

I am intimidated by quilting too. This turned out so great and looks to be a big hit with your little friend!
