.john deere….pink?!.

My projects this week were pink John Deere flannel rag blankets. I’d bought this pink John Deere fabric about two years ago wanting to make a rag quilt out of it…finally got a completed project out of it!

I had envisioned a square rag quilt, but when I saw this pattern on Pinterest (, I knew it would be a great option for this fun fabric.


I made two of these – they’re not identical, but close.


I made one on Tuesday night, one on Wednesday night, then clipped them and washed them by Friday.


They went together super fast…and turned out super cute!


I dried them twice in the dryer to try to get rid of the little strings….sorta successful. I hate that they shed so much!


Here are the two together…


One is a birthday present and one will be donated to the Young Life auction (Young Life Banquet – March 5th in Connell).


Fun, quick project! This week, my goal is to finish two projects from my quilt top box. Stay tuned!
