Made By Mabin

I am pretty excited to show you this. I started a flannel rag quilt just after Thanksgiving. I did my buying and figuring, cutting. And cutting.

These are 12 inch squares with an Oklahoma star applique so named because it was drawn and cut in Oklahoma doncha' know...

This quilt for a certain little boy's big Oh Three. I wanted something warm and snuggly.

The beauty of these rag quilts is that you wash them as part of the completion. The recipient can feel free to use and wash without fear of hurting them.

I love how it turned out.

As happy as I am to share it here, I was beyond excited to give it to this little man I know.


  1. Oh my stars (pun completely intended!)! It's gorgeous! I'm getting ready to make Fredlet a new quilt for his bed, and we are HUGE fans of rag quilts in this house. SO, I think it should be a "Mabin" quilt too! I'll be off to look at flannel today!

  2. Look at how fabulous it turned out!! I can't believe how beautiful and professional it looks. You're so talented, Robin! And the little guy who got it, ohmygosh. Don't you know what cute kids do to me right now? They make me rethink my stance on waiting til I'm 30 to have babies. Don't mess with my resolve, girlfriend! ;-)~

  3. It's absolutely beautiful Robin! I know some little guy will be very happy this year.


  4. Oh my goodness, Robin... it is just beyond wonderful!! WOW!!

    And that little one is going to love it forever! And btw, how cute is he??

  14. Robin,
    That is so wonderfully boyish and cuddly at the same time. You amaze me, my friend. You did a wonderful job!

  15. There is truly no end to the length of your talent. He's gonna be asking for his Mobin blanky for a long, long time. Clever girl, wrapping him up in your love when you can't be there all the time.

    Merry Christmas sweet Robin!!

  18. robin,
    loving your quilt, girl!
    and, it was such a treat to have lunch together last week and the conversation was superb~i think we really connect and that makes me happy!
    merry christmas to you, robin...

  19. So cute!
    I've been "trying" to make a quilt for so many years that I've lost count.
    I guess I'll say it again... someday I'll do it.

  20. I love how it turned out, too! It's absolutely fabulous. Great job!!

  21. Robin, the quilt is just wonderful...what a thoughtful, personal gift! He'll have it forever!

  22. Do u have a pattern or instructions on how to do this quilt

    1. I don't Cynthia. I used 12 inch flannel squares and cut out my own star for applique. Appliqued the star using a zig zag stitch on to the square first. I made a sandwich of two squares and batting then stitched sandwiches together suing a one inch seam allowance. once pieced close the entire quilt with a seam using the same SA. Cut the SA at .5 inch intervals. I highly recommend the Fiscals rag quilt scissors for this. Wash about three times to "rag". hope this helps. There are a ton of tutorials out there!
