1. I only used 2 slices of flannel fabric instead of 3
2. I did not sew the "traditional X" to secure the slices of fabric
3. I cut the seams way too big - so big that after 6 years they still haven't frayed nicely.
I wish I could take those quilts back and replace them with the quilts I am doing now. All my quilts now have 3 slices with an X and are super fluffy! I also double stitch the perimeter which give the quilt a very finished look. I've learned to cut the seams to less than 1/4 inch. I've been pleased and proud of my work. I still don't consider myself a great seamstress but I'm absolutely positive I can make a beautiful rag quilt.
