Homemade Christmas Gifts- Part 3

I also made my mom a rag quilt for Christmas.  Mom was the recipient of my first rag quilt several years ago when I was just experimenting with them.  I thought she needed a newer version.  Of course she was my guinea pig again because this was my first rag quilt that I did with stripes instead of blocks.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  Plus there were fewer seams to sew and snip, so it went a little faster.

I love this fabric!

So cute! Did you like doing strips better than squares? I have made one each way and I feel like the strips were easier.
