Rag Quilt Journey Begins

I decided the other day after finishing my first rag quilt that I loved how it turned out so much that I'm going to make the boys each one for christmas.  This time I'm going to use the right materials. 
This one I did with top layer cotton print, fleece for the backing.  Where I messed up is I thought "Oh the scraps of InsulBright I have left over will be perfect".  Buzz! Wrong answer, thanks for playin!  The InsulBright was just too stiff and thick for it for a baby blanket, plus the thick layers was extremely hard to sew through.  So, it will be come my lap blankie, grant you its super warm and the fleece is so soft, but just not cuddly.
My crafty buddy Bambi thinks it's cuddly and when I shooed him off this is the look I got! 
Pitiful. I know I'm a horrible mamma :( lol  he's just a boob!


The fabric store had all it's fleece and flannels on sale for the Labor Day holiday, so me and hubbies mom raided them lol.  This journey will entail fleece and flannel and no InsulBright lol I'll keep that for the hot pads and casserole carriers!
Here's what goodies I brought home today. I think they are gonna turn out super cute!
Now that they are all washed, I'm off to cut the squares! I'll keep ya posted!
