My first "Rag Quilt". Top layer is cotton, middle and bottom layers are flannel. I used a layer cake with 42 squares and added 7 squares from my stash for a total of 49 squares. The layout is 7x7, stitched with 1/2" seams for a finished size of 63" x 63". Using a layer cake took the stress out of coordinating fabrics.
I made three i-spy style lap quilts last year. My children selected some fabrics during our summer vacation through Paducah Kentucky in 2014. I also participated in a charm swap with member of the MSQC forum! There are pieces from friends all over the country. I used a 5" tumbler for each quilt and added sashing and special quilting for each. Each child picked their own backing. My children call them "Car" quilts and are glad to have them during our Kansas winter.
