How do I make rag quilts?


Answer by  mammakat (11147)

The simplest way is a crazy quilt- you piece together random leftover bits in any design that pleases you. We machine together squares in long strips and cut to please.

Pre-wash rags. Use 100% cotton only. You can start by cutting the rags in squares, strip or any other design you want. Then lay out the pieces to see how the quilt will look. Take one section at a time and start to sew either by hand or machine. I would not quilt this, you won't see the pattern.

Gather up materials that will easily fray when washed alot. These quilts are much like traditional quilt except you allow them to ravel. These quilts do not have to have batting. Cut your squares into a medium size and sew together in a pattern of your choice. Denim is used alot in this type of quilt

The easiest way is to use a square template to cut 4" squares, then sort by color and piece together. Sew binding strips if you have enough extra fabric.

Start by collecting the type of rags you would like to use. There a few different types of quilt designs. One is wear the rags are tied and stitched. The nicest rag quilt design is your basic square pattern using many different pieces of your gathered rags. Then stitch them all together.
