Welcome to Tuesday Tell All! When I was pregnant with my little one I wanted to do a rag quilt. My mother and I went to Joanne's and bought the material. I came home and was to tired. I put the fabric away and didn't get around to it till he was over a year. Then I was looking through some blogs and I found a great tutorial. I wish that I still had the site name.
I don't have any pictures of the steps. When I have the desire to do one again I would love to show you. Till then I will just tell you how I did mine. To start out I bought 5 different type materials. I bought 3 different fabric for the squares and then I bought two solids. One of the solids were for the middle, instead of the really expensive batting. All the material was flannel, we live in Utah and I wanted a really warm blanket.
So I cut all of the squares out 10*10 inches. I did 6 by 6 on the blanket. When I sewed it I stacked one blue, one tan, and then a print. Then take and sew it from one corner to the other. But you don't cut the string, you just keep feeding them through. When you are done you cut them apart and then you sewing from one corner to the other. Then cut them apart and then decide on the pattern that you want to do. If you are like me and are not that great at sewing, you pin them together and sew the sides. Then sew them in strips and then when you are all done with the strips, you sew the strips together.
This is what it will look like when you get to this stage:
