If you have never made a quilt before, a rag quilt is a great place to start. I am going to walk you through the step by step process of how to make a rag quilt. If after you have read through the tutorial you still have questions, please feel free to contact me. I stink at math. I have no idea how to figure out how much fabric you need for a queen size. Trust me, you do not want my help in the math department.

I'm so glad you posted this I've always wanted to learn how to make these quilts! Love it. Can't wait to try it. I'm going to need to start a book with all the project I want to do!! I can't wait to try So cute. I'm ready to dig into my fabric stash and make one!! This is such a great tutorial! I've been wanting to get into quilting but have been intimidated. This seems like a really easy way to start! Thanks for posting! Thank you for taking the time to map out how to make a rag quilt and for the awesome photos.

WE all learn different, this is the best tutorial I have found to give me the courage to take on my first rag quilt. I am very excited.

Thanks so much for this tutorial. This is the only one I've found so far that makes me feel like this project is something I can do! So thank you, thank you, thank you! Great tutorial! I have been thinking of doing one of these and now that I see how easy, I think I'll try it. I'm just learning to sew, and this is going to be my first big project.

Thanks for sharing! I've been wanting to try my first quilt and this is so cute and seems pretty easy for a beginner. One question: Do I wash my flannel before cutting and sewing? Estelle, I do not usually wash my flannel and it hasn't made a difference. But if you feel more comfortable washing it first, that would be fine. I just throw a Shout Color Catcher into the wash when I wash the quilt so the colors won't bleed.

I have never had a problem so far. Hope that helps! I've been wanting to make one of these, with your directions I'll be sure to try one. My twin sister is making one following your directions and said it was easy. Thanks for sharing. Connie Jones. Thank you for showing step by step instructions! I want to make a rag quilt as a baby gift Didn't know how to go about it. Thank you so much! I have finished sewing a quilt for my grandson following your dirctions exactly.

Fringing still awaits me. In the meanwhile, I am wondering if the quilt isn't a bit too heavy. I plan to make another on, but would like to know what you and others think of omitting the battng? I have omitted the batting before, and I didn't like it as well, but I like big cozy blankets. It will definitely work if you omit the batting.

If that's your preference, I say go for it! Plus, it'll make for a cheaper quilt :. Thank you sho much for showing the back side! I have always wondered about that! Thank you very much for posting your tutorial.

We planned a rag quilting group night, emailed your website out to our quilting group, and we were able to make 17 rag quilts in one evening. These quilts will be given to local foster children.

Thank you once again. I am on my second rag quilt. I love your tutorial and recommend it to anyone wanting to venture into the world of sewing. Thanks for this tutorial!! It's so complete. I know now that I can make this myself!! Have you ever done this using larger squares, like starting out w 12" so the finished size would be 10"?

I wonder if the problem would be that the quilting needs to be more than just an X across such a larger square Thanks for your easy to follow instructions and pictures.

I was looking for some inspiration as I promised my friend a baby cot quilt and I think I can do this one. Susan in Charlotte: Yes, you can definitely do bigger squares! However, the biggest I have ever cut had been 9 inches. If you are concerned about only quilting an X on such a big square, I would consider just using more squares instead of cutting bigger squares.

Does that make sense? This looks a lot easier than I thought! I may have to try it one day. Thanks for the great idea! I read your instructions last night and just finished a baby size quilt. It helps those of us who learn by site and not reading.

Thank you!!! Alison in Greenville, NC. Thank you for the time and effort. You did a wonderful job. Just wondered. I have an aweful lot of cotton. Lallyy, I have only ever used flannel, because I like the coziness of it, but my sister has made rag quilts using cotton and it turns out fine. So by all means, use up your cotton! There are a lot more possibilities with cotton; sometimes it's hard to find what you're looking for in flannel.

Good luck and have fun with it! Hi I love your tutorial and we are trying it as we speak but I have some questions. Were the x comes together in the corners which way do you cut them?

I have all four corners nestled together so are they supposed to be bunched up? One lays to the left and the other to the right. By cutting them will the fraying still come out?.. I can send you a picture if easier to understand.. Thank you Mandy. Thanks for the tutorial. I made one and it turned out great! I posted about it on my blog.

I want to make quilts for a woman's shelter and this will be perfect. My question is, do I have to use the Warm and Natural batting or can I use the polyester batting with a light loft? I'm sure that you can use other batting! I have always used Warm and Natural, but I'm sure anything would be fine. Thanks for the tutorial!

Made my first one.. It worked ok but I think for my next one I will try to find the warm and natural. I also didn't have a walking foot but think it might have been better to have.. Thanks VERY much for posting these wonderful and easy to follow steps!!! I am so excited to make my quilt!

Baby Rag Quilt Tutorial

I think I have sewed probably around 25 of these quilts in the last 6 years or so. They make for a great tummy time blanket especially if you have various textures or play blanket. The great thing about rag quilts is that they are very forgiving. A couple years ago, a good friend and I took a quilting class. Although it was super-fun because I had amazing company, I soon realized I was in over my head! Although they take quite a bit of time to make simply because all the steps, they are really pretty easy. And the end product is totally worth it! Two of my best friends from childhood recently had their first babies—one friend had a boy and the other had a girl. Since these friends will always be super-special to me, I wanted to make their sweet babies something special as well! It will take MUCH longer this way, however.
