Breast Cancer Rag Quilt - Finished!!!

The commissioned Breast Cancer Rag Quilt is done!!!!  I am hoping that the new recipient is as happy with the outcome as I am.  It is important to remember Rag Quilts will continue to shed with each washing and the fringe will become shabbier and shabbier.  While this only enhances the loveliness of the quilt, you must remember to clean your lint trap frequently during drying!!!

These Rag Quilts are made to order!!!  Each one is unique in that I am constantly adding new Breast Cancer Fabric as well as pinky pinks!!  Since the fabric placement is random, it also gives the added feel of shabby patchwork.

I've nearly completed my sons Strippy Flannel Quilt!!!  Just a few strings and a wash and dry.  This quilt, other than the backing is made completely from leftovers.  Even the batting is leftover pieces!!


  1. Hi Diana, Smile...Oh it's just beautiful! Thanks for all the time and effort you put into making this. This will be a healing quilt for a dear friend who really needs to feel the power of love's energy around her. I will let you know as soon as I get it. Can't wait! Love Light Truth Patricia

  2. That's awesome. I'm working on a denim front, flannel back and batted quilt. Finding enough jeans was the daunting task...phew.

    Do you still intend on holding the quilt lesson thing weekly.

    I keep looking for an update as to the progress you are making with your daughter and the links to start.

  3. Absolutely Awesome!!!!!

    Where did you get the Breast Cancer Flannel? I'm looking everywhere and can only find fleece. Please feel free to email me
