Sewing Project - Rag Quilts

It's been quite some time since I've posted, and for good reason: the end of the school year, moving to a new city, changing school districts, unpacking, preparing for new job, laziness... pretty intense stuff!

Anyway, here was our final project for the semester: Rag Quilts! These are a great beginner quilt, because with the ruffles in between each piece you don't need to worry about them lining up perfectly. Here are a few samples:

Mickey & Minnie - she made this for her mom. Awwww.

Blurry focus, sorry. This one is flannel.

Close-up. Once this is washed, the frills will be softer and more curled.

It was ambitious, but they were a very motivated class - I just wish I had remembered to take more pictures of the final products!


  1. Just found your blog, and was sad when i had read all the posts! I love seeing a blog about FCS, instead of Elementary teaching. Thanks for some really great ideas!

    1. Thanks for the feedback! Elementary blogs have tons of great organizing ideas, but it is nice to find resources for us FACS people!
