This is the shabby rag blanket mentioned in the previous post. With this blanket, each square represents something important from Sarah's life. It is constructed from several layers of flannel, with the seams exposed and naturally frayed each time the blanket is washed. This blanket is a trememdous amount of work, but the pre-teen age group loves these things. Sarah was a bit embarrassed at the notion of taking it to college with her, but I know she cherishes it.
