This is the cutest quilt! I have looked at it for a couple of days now and I have decided to make this with some changes. I have young teen granddaughters who share a room. They have such different tastes that it is hard to make their room cute because the decor is so mismatched. One granddaughter wears red bandanas, and the other wears blue. I will make one in red and white and the other in blue and white. I am going to make it a rag quilt, ,so bandanas only on the top with two layers of flannel underneath. FINALLY, I have a project that will work for both of them. I will make these as coverings for each of their beds. Has anyone else made this? Curious as to where you bought your bandanas.

Our local Army Navy store carries a large selection of bandanas.
