Flannel Rag Quilt Tutorial

This is a re-post of another baby blanket tutorial I did a few years ago.
Flannel Rag Quilt Tutorial
You will need 1/2 yard of five different coordinating flannel fabrics. Cut your fabric into 50 8 inch squares. (You will have 10 squares of each fabric.)
 DO NOT WASH THE FABRIC FIRST. Put your
 squares wrong sides together as shown. Stitch a 1/2 inch seam all the way around each square.

Once all your squares are stitched get down on the floor and lay out the squares until you get the design you like. Five rows of five squares.

Pin your squares together (back sides together) one strip of five squares at a time.
 Stitch the strips with a 1/2 inch seam. Then pin your strips together and stitch them together (back sides together)with a 1/2 inch seam as well.
Snip all the seams and outer edge at 1/4 inch intervals as shown being careful not to cut through any seams.
Now wash you quilt in warm water and detergent. Do not use fabric softener yet.  Shake it well and dry without using dryer sheets. Check your lint filter often. Now wash again using fabric softener and dry using dryer sheets. The more you wash your quilt the better it looks!!!!
That’s it. You’re finished. Please let me know if you have any questions. I will be doing a tutorial on a cotton  rag quilt in the near future. Thanks for looking!!!
