Baby Rag Quilt

Recently, my sister and I got together to make a baby rag quilt.   I've made a few before so this wasn't a brand new experience but I still made quite a few mistakes.  When making a rag quilt, the seams have to be  sewn so they show rather than sewn so they are hidden.  This goes against everything that's "normal" to me, so needless to say, the seam ripper got a bit of a workout. The finished product came out really pretty.  We used two complimentary flannel fabrics on the front and a different flannel on the back.  We cut all the pieces into 12 1/2 " squares and stitched them together with a 1/4" seam allowance.  Then we clipped all around the entire quilt (every! single! square!)
