A Cup Of Tea A Cozy Mystery And A Rag Quilt I Made

I am a crafty person but I am the type of crafter I call an "impatient crafter" That means if it takes longer then an hour start to finish I am not likely to try it. However I have wanted to make a quilt for a long time and friends encouraged me to try to make a rag quilt.
A rag quilt is a very easy quilt to make and normal sewers can get it done in one night, me it took a few weeks. But there is something very therapeutic in ripping up flannel!
Truth be told the hardest part of making this quilt was the "ragging" of each square and the fact that I kept falling asleep under the warm and wonderful layers while I went...
One side of the quilt is Rose Buds & Cream Flannel and the other is a very fun Tea Pot print flannel that I paired with bright orange flannel.
I watched this tutorial to figure out how to make my quilt and this was very easy to follow. I really liked this tutorial and I will make another but will buy some Ragging Shears first!
Thank you to my friends Cheryl and Greta for their support in making this quilt!
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at


  1. You did a fantastic job! It's beautiful!

  2. Thank you! As long as you do not look too closely at it, I can not sew or cut straight but it was a labor of love and it is cozy and warm.

  3. It looks great. It has been a while but I want to make a quilt sometime soon. I like seeing all those cozy mysteries books out as well.
