My First Rag Quilt!

The first thing I did was cut 8x8" squares from five different fabrics. Then, I sewed them together with a 6x6" piece of batting in between them. Once I had sewn enough ( ~110 ), I began to lay out possible patterns.

I decided on this pattern.
After a bunch of pinning, sewing, trimming and washing, I can finally snuggle up with my rag quilt!
