If you are looking for a comfy project to showcase your bird appliqués, the Cozy Flannel Rag Quilt is just the thing!
Rag quilts are popular because they are simple and fast, the construction and quilting are completed at the same time. For this reason, many people choose a rag quilt as their very first quilting project! Squares are assembled with batting in the center, quilted simply with an X and then sewn together with all seams on the top. The magic of the rag quilt happens with a pair of sharp scissors followed by a tumble (or two) in the washer and dryer. Fluffed up and cozy, your quilt is ready for your songbirds!
Choose to appliqué with wool, cotton or flannel in the pattern of your choice. Birds are optional, of course, but we think they are adorable! Finished size as shown is 60 x 60 inches. Purchase two kits and make it larger.
Kit includes all brushed flannel plaids needed for the top and back of your quilt in deep colors of nature to coordinate with the birds. Simply add squares of batting in-between your blocks - it’s a great way to use up scraps. Detailed directions also included so you can get right to work on your Cozy Flannel Rag Quilt!
