Rag Quilt Started

I was supposed to make Jeff a wool coat but I keep getting distracted.

A friend of mine said she wanted to make some easy quilts for Christmas presents and I poked around for ideas and ran across directions for making Rag Quilts. Rag quilts are made with layers of fabric and flannel/fleece. It caught my eye because when I was sifting boxes this past summer I found a 5-yard piece of lavender flannel that I bought to make pajamas more than ten years ago. I don't like sewing clothes anymore so it was just sitting there and I've been debating just getting rid of it.

Anyway, when I found this project, I decided I wanted to try making one. Plus, it would be a good way to use up most of that flannel. As usual, I decided to make a plan. I am much more efficient with my time when I know what I'm doing.
Today, I finished cutting out the pieces and assembling the rows.
Tomorrow, I will put the rows together.
