With its fuzzy exterior and wind-blocking ability, flannel has the power to warm our hearts and souls all year-round. To use up some leftover fabric and save some dough, try this Magical Flannel Rag Baby Quilt Tutorial to make a scrap quilt you won't soon forget. Piece the scraps side-by-side, or overlap them for an uneven look. Then sew the two sides together for a phenomenal handmade scrap quilt that comes from the heart, not from the wallet. For a vintage look, leave the threads hanging off the edges.

When it comes to learning how to quilt, there are plenty of beginner-friendly places to start, baby quilts and rag quilts like the one you see above being one of them! Starting small - like baby quilts - is a good way to ease your way into this world of crafts when you are learning how to quilt. Small projects like baby blankets and mug rugs aren't just great places to begin your quilting adventures, either. They also are some of the most popular gifts among quilting enthusiasts, and it is easy to see why. Many of us remember our beloved first baby blanket or baby quilt that our aunts or grandmothers created for us. There's nothing quite as personal as giving (or receiving) a quilted project. Learning how to quilt is indeed one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself, because it is the gift that keeps on giving!

have my flannel remnants and can't wait to try this! #BESTIDEAEVER

Please..Never leave the threads hanging off the edges. These could get wrapped around baby's finger and cut off circulation in that precious little digit. Have seen it happen.

Judyschooler: Good point! You never know what those little fingers will get in to. I do a lot of sewing for little ones and it never hurts to be too careful.

Love it!
