Yellow Rag Quilt

Yellow Rag Quilt 043

My latest Rag Quilt.  This time I stayed with just one fabric and the result is this soft and very girly shabby chic yellow rage quilt!

I used all the same fabric on one side and the back side is a solid pale yellow.

I love this quilt.

I want to make it again in a bigger size size.   Right now it’s the size of a baby quilt.  I would love to have this draped across the foot of a bed or even to have it in a lap sized quilt size would be nice.

Perfect for book reading or TV watching.  Happy Thursday Everyone!

Hello Lisa, I am so excited to meet you and delighted to have found your charming blog. I have been wanting to make a rag quilt. They look so soft and cuddly . . . more than a regular quilt. That and the fact that I like trying new things. I love your cabbage rose fabric. The print and the colors just come together and make such a delicate quilt. It is perfection.
I am so very inspired.
Thank you!
Your newest follower and blogging sister,

Oh my goodness I just love it!!! I love the colors and the pattern. It reminds me of the quilts my grandmother used to have and the ones I would curl up under on Friday nights after her rolling my hair and we would watch Dynasty. Well done!!!

So beautiful! Thank you for sharing. I have a similar fabric that I want to use for a rag quilt, but had never thought of using just one fabric. This is exactly the look I had envisioned.

Did you use an inner layer? If so, did you use flannel, quilt batting or what?

What size are your blocks?

Thank you.

Hi! Thanks so much for your kind comment! The blocks I used were 8 x8 and I use a lightweight quilt batting in between all of the squares. I really did enjoy just sticking to the one fabric...it really made for a very pretty quilt. Good Luck with yours!!

The yellow rag quilt is beautiful!. I am going to try to make one. Could you tell me what kind of material you used. I thought flannel was only used in rag quilts. That doesn't look like flannel to me.Please help. Thank you

Hi Vanesssa. Thanks so much for the kind words. I love this quilt too! I know that most rag quilts are made of flannel but actually none of mine are! Ha! I like using regular cotton blended fabrics. Anything you might use for regular quilting works just fine. I have had good luck with all the fabrics I have tried. The only one that didn't ruffle up as nicely as all the other ones I have made was a seersucker-ish is that is a word type of fabric. But even that still worked. I have also used a very inexpensive solid broadcloth for the back side on a lot of the quilts I have made and they look great. I find a lot of my fabrics at Hobby Lobby and have ordered online from fabric.com. The local fabric/sewing shop in my town also somethimes get some incredibly cute fabrics that I like to splurge on. Good Luck with the one you make. I found that yellow fabric at Hobby Lobby. Please let me know if you have any questions! Lisa

Thank you Lisa. I am glad to know about the fabric. I will be going to Hobby Lobby and hope to find that material or something close to it. Like I said, that rag quilt is beautiful! Thanks again.
