A Doll Sized Rag Quilt {made with scraps & lots of love}

 I've always wanted to make a rag quilt. I found a video ( on YouTube a while back that has perfect instructions! I decided to make a doll sized rag quilt to start since I am on a doll accessory making kick anyway. This will be a Christmas gift for one of my 4 year olds. I just pulled some flannel scraps from my shelf and went work. I LOVE how it turned out!
My doll sized quilt is 18"x18". I cut 18 squares 7"x7". You will need two squares per block. This was so easy to make and so much fun! I used flannel but you can also use cotton. After Christmas I'm going to make 3 twin sized rag quilts. I will use batting for those. Here is a great tutorial that explains how to use batting in your rag quilt. 
Here is a close up of the quilt.
This cost me nothing but a little time and some fabric scraps. My daughter will love it. What are you making for your little ones for Christmas?
