What size should I cut my squares for a rectangular rag quilt?

I am new to quilting and would like to make sure my squares are of the right size.

You can make the quilt any size. The squares have to be all of equal size, but the squares can be as small or as large you want them depending on the fabrics you have. The rectangle shape will be formed by more squares in the length than the width of the quilt.

The average size for the squares of a rectangular quilt should be between 3 and 4 inches all the way around.

Figure out how big a quilt you want to make, then how many rows/columns you want; divide total yardage by the rows. Add 1/4" on all sides of each block.

Depends on how big you want the squares. A good standard size is usually 4x4 inches or 3x3 if you want smaller squares.
