Quilting Designs on a Baby Quilt

Congratulations! You finished your baby quilt top. The fabric and colors are superb and match perfectly with the baby’s new room. Now it is time to do the hand quilting.

Rag Quilt in a Weekend

The weekend is here. Checking out the stash? You are itching to start a new quilt but with the summer here, you are just not willing to invest the hours needed to start a full-sized quilt.
I have an idea for you. Rag quilts are easy and fun to make and you really can make one in a weekend – from start to finish following the complete step-by-step directions. In less than 17 hours, you can cut the fabric, sew the blocks together, and fringe the quilt.
