I just took the mini trial rag quilt out of the dryer. I used the accuquilt 8-1/2" die to cut the squares. Flannel on both front and back with warm and natural batting. I only broke one needle while assembling. I put the wee quilt inside a fabric bag to wash and dry. I have a front load washer so I don't think the fringe got a great deal of agitation. I am just not sure I'm crazy about it. Rachael seems to love it. I should have made it bigger but at the time I just wanted to get something stitched up and in the wash to see how the die worked. I also realized I don't have much of a flannel stash. Has anyone made rag quilts with just quilters cotton rather than flannel. If so, with or without batting? Or with just a third layer of cotton rather than batting? I would love to hear anyone else's success or failures.
