I finally dragged myself into a laundromat and washed the rag quilts to fray up the seams. I quite like how they turned out. I am definitely going to make a couple more to toss down into the basement family room.
It was a fairly significant investment of time to snip all those seams, but it paired nicely with our new subscription to Disney+.
Once it's washed, I think I prefer the 3/8" seam over the 1/2" seam; it just looks a little tidier.
