A while back I found (thanks to DeAnna!) some American flag fabric at the SWAP shop and I have high hopes of turning it into a baby blanket. See the baby will be sleeping in our room for a least a little while and it's decorated in an Americana theme so I think a nice, country rag quilt made out of a flag would be perfect!
So yesterday I took some other fabric and made a practice quilt using these instructions. The fabric was a little thin and it could stand to fray a little more to make it look more "raggy" but I think the general idea worked.
Now to take on the American flag fabric!
