  2. Great tutorial, thank you! Do you cut your batting squares the same size as your fabric squares? I have seen tutorials where they make the batting squares smaller - I guess so that the batting doesn't show in the end??

  3. You are right Sandy, I forgot that part but did add it to my posting! You don't want to be clipping through the batting! Actually, I think that I've seen it both ways but cutting the batting smaller just makes things easier!

  4. I've wanted to make one for a looong time now. I just need to get the material and do it and for sure it will be like the "fall" one above because those are my absolute favorite colors! Love the one you made for your grand-daughter!
    Blessings,
    Sheila

  7. I am not sure where you "cut" when you are done sewing it together. Do you mean that when you sew the two pieces together at 1/2 " , that 1/2" will be what you clip when you are done? So the back is flat and the front will have joining pieces that you will cut to fray? Sorry, I am just a little confused, but I love this and really want to make one. yours are amazing!!!!!

    1. Sewing a rag quilt is so easy and fun! I am also going to make the fall rag quilt...got my supplies today. Anyway, you sew two squares together (with batting in between) leave a 1/2" edge. (this is what you will clip later) Sew an X on the squares too. The back will be flat and the front will have the raggy look. Sew a row together and after you have all your rows, you sew your rows together. Does that sound easy to understand? I hope so!

  10. Love your quilt - much simpler than the pattern I had been using (mine had the large squares then 1/4 size smaller squares to make up the space of one large square, so much more cutting, sewing, & snipping!) Also, I love how just the 3 fabrics came together beautifully. How do you bind the ends? Or do you just sew a line down if not binding?

  12. I made this "raghan" a few years ago and gave it to a friend moving from FL to NJ. It fit a queen size bed and she just loves it. Lotsa fun to do, just cutting the edges is a little "hand painful" with such a large quilt as you are cutting through four materials. It makes a gorgeous quilt and worth the pain and effort.

  13. Love your technique for rag quilt. Is there a recommended fabric? Does it need to be flannel for best fraying??

  14. I love the Fall Quilt you "made"!! We have the exact same taste bc I have the exact same quilt! I got mine from L.L. Bean about 5 years ago! It is indeed a beautiful quilt!

  16. Thank you so much for this tutorial! I've wanted to make a rag quilt for so long and just haven't. Your instructions are great! One question...did you wash cotton fabrics in your 'at home' washer? I'm concerned about the threads clogging my machine. Thanks so much! Can't wait to make my first rag quilt!!!
