My First Rag Quilt

Moda AVIARY Raq Quilt
Today, I started my first rag quilt, for a friend of mine who is very sick. I've always wanted to make a rag quilt, but never got around to it. So, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity.
I am using a Moda AVIARY Layer Cake, pink flannel for the back, and batting.
So far, I have cut the flannel and batting into squares. And I have the 10" squares from the layer cake. So, next, I sew/quilt all of the squares. Then sew them together. And then trim the seams to make the ragged edges.
I found this information about rag quilting helpful. It seems pretty simple. We'll see if it really is that simple. Hopefully, I'll post in the next few days a picture of a finished rag quilt.
