*Please note: Similar to blankets, rag quilts should never be used in a crib with a newborn. They do make excellent play mats for tummy time, and can be used for older children.

Flannel Rag Quilt Tutorials for Beginners

Flannel makes an excellent choice for rag quilts, not only because of its warmth, but because it also creates a unique fraying effect that's a staple of classic rag quilts. If you're searching for a warm flannel quilt for your grandbaby, then be sure to check out these rag quilt tutorials!
