Have you ever wanted to make a rag quilt, but didn’t know where to start? Well here you go! A quick tutorial to get you through.

My finished quilted ended up 6X8. You will need 2 fabric pieces and 1 batting piece for each square that you want in your quilt. I cut my fabric 7×7 inches and my batting 5×5 inches. Any dense Warm and Natural type batting will do the trick. I used some kind of bamboo batting because at the time I purchased it it was the cheapest. My quilt’s finished dimensions are 41X35, and I took 1/2 inch seams on everything.

If you have any questions, just ask in the comments and I will answer as soon as possible!

    How funny, I have all that fabric! And I’m making a quilt out of it all. I’d say we have good taste 🙂

    What type of fabric do you use?

    Great tutorial!! Seems sew (so) easy. lol. Can you make it into a twin size or is a baby blanket the only size that works well for this kind of quilt?

      These particular fabrics came from JoAnn Fabrics, but I’ve sewn some really nice fabrics from some of the designer quilting lines (who also produce some of the same fabrics in flannel version). freshsqueezedfabrics on etsy is a great little shop. Happy sewing!
