I have seen a few of these on display and I really like the look. Somewhere I have a saved magazine with a pattern and instructions - but we have just moved and I have no idea where it might be.

I seem to recall that these quilts were made of flannel and the pieces were sewn wrong sides together instead of the usual method of right sides together. Is anyone familiar with this technique?

I just want to make a quick, simple patchwork quilt out of several beautiful pieces of flannel I have. I thought about doing this and then tying the quilt.

Am I on the right track? What about the biding? Do you revert to right sides together when you finish the quilt for strength?

Thanks! that pattern was just what I needed to get started! I have also ordered a book on frayed quilting - I think that will be a good way to get my kids started. I can't wait to get sewing!

I have finished a quilt using the pattern form the above link. I can't believe how fast it went! Three evenings of cutting out squares of flannel and batting, two evenings of quilting the "sandwiches" , one evening sewing them all together and another evening clipping the edges - it is finished and gorgeous! I love this technique. It is so soft and the frayed edges feel so nice, the texture is a nice addition. I am definitely going to do this again!

I've also made a baby sized rag quilt without the batting, and backed it with a layer of microfleece. *very* simple/fast project! Oh, here's a pic: http://www3.sympatico.ca/saffronbay/.../rag-quilt.jpg

I've been collecting funky flannel squares for a while now and plan to do another for my daughter's bed. (Not that she ever sleeps in her bed! :LOL)

I think a denim one would be awesome too!
