Nevermind that it’s 90+ degrees outside, we can’t stop using this quilt. There’s something about a rag quilt that makes everyone want to get under it. My kids have put it on a rotating night-time schedule so they all get to take a turn sleeping with it (but not me, lol).
Not to toot my own horn, but I think I have hit upon the perfect combination of cute quilting cottons, fuzzy flannel, and cozy fleece. This rag quilt is beautiful, soft, and warm (but not too heavy). Hopefully I’ll find the time this weekend to type up a tutorial for Monday. 🙂
So, are you summer sewing or ‘following where the fabric takes you’ like me?
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
Sew an organizer covered with pockets that you can hang in your closet!

At my daughter Chloe’s high school (can you believe my baby started high school???), the lunch lines are so long that she has been skipping lunch! She’s always starving by the time she gets home because she doesn’t want to carry a big lunch bag as well as her heavy backpack – poor girl!
I am so in love with the beautiful look of simple patchwork quilts with lots of squares. This is the perfect way to use up fabric scraps like I did, or you can make a beautifully coordinated quilt with pre-cut 2 1/2’’ square fabric pieces that come in mini-charm packs.
I’m also in love with the process. If you feel like quilt making is your escape from the world and sitting down to sew for a few hours makes your troubles fade away… this is the quilt for you!
Sew an easy beautiful apron with this free sewing pattern that only uses one yard of fabric! Whether you are sewing for yourself or for a friend, an apron always comes in handy and makes a great gift. This blog post includes a link to a free template that I digitized for you.

Sew a Starship quilt for your favorite little future astronaut! The Starship Baby Quilt Pattern from SewCanShe requires just 3 different 1-yard pieces of fabric. I have made this pattern super easy to sew and super easy for anyone to…
This pretty little box shaped pouch is perfect for holding and organizing cosmetics, sewing supplies, jewelry, small toys, crayons, chocolate candies, and more! My little case with a free pattern and tutorial below measures about 5’’ x 7’’ on the top and 2 1/2’’ deep.
You can use your leftover or orphan (aka UFO) quilt blocks to make cute potholders! It’s a great last minute gift, housewarming present, or even teacher gift. See how I used some unfinished quilt blocks to make handmade patchwork potholders in practically no time at all.
I love the rag quilt! I just recently made one out of my denim stash. It is getting used for all our baseball/soccer games, outside movie nights, picnics, etc. Cracks me up your kids worked out a rotating schedule for the quilt but didn’t include you in it. At least you know it is loved and they are sharing. =)
Will anxiously be waiting for the tutorial . Thank you!!
Ooh I love your gorgeous quilt, looks super cozy. Thanks for hosting the linky party. I look forward to checking out the entries 🙂
Too cute! Even the pictures evoke a sense of relaxation enveloped in total softness! Is the flannel the inside layer? Would LOVE a tutorial! Thanks for sharing!
I love the Halloween quilt. It’s on my bucket list for things to make.
