Rag Blankets and Burp Cloths

How is everyone's summer going? Last week I made a list of the projects I wanted to get done this summer. There's a bunch of stuff on the list - organizing certain areas of the house, finishing some projects,  coming up with a plan to decorate the master bedroom, and getting caught up on scrap-booking just to name a few.

It's only the second week of summer and I've got one thing crossed off the list - finishing up some baby blankets to use for gifts. I bought the fabric on a Black Friday sale, I even cut it up that weekend and then it sat. Do any of you have projects sitting around to be finished?

I love to do rag blankets in strips. It's so much faster than squares. I've shared a full picture tutorial in the past: Striped Ragtop Baby Blanket. Check it out for the details.

Here are the fun different patterns I did.

I also made some burp cloths with the extra fabric. You can find the tutorial here: Rag Top Burpcloths

What projects are you going to finish this summer?

I'm not sure how much I'll be blogging this summer, I've got family and church commitments that will take some of my time. Posts will be sporadic, but once school starts again, I'll be back to a consistent schedule.
