Rag Quilt

August 29, 2016

I have a baby quilt I have to do for a friend’s new grandson, arriving mid November, and have decided to do my very first rag quilt. I have bought the fabric, a lovely collection of “Cozy Cottons” by Robert Kaufman for the project. I may still add some more pieces of fabric for this quilt. What do you think of my fabric choice??

I have been given lots of tips from my colleagues in the store, but decided I needed a chart to show just how many squares I need, depending on  how big the squares are to be. That way I could follow the chart and cut just the right amount of blocks. It is a great reference sheet to go shopping with when deciding how much fabric to buy. I will add batting, sew an X across each square, sew them all together with a 1/2″ seam and then clip, clip, clip the seams. I am ready to get started!!

I will post pictures of my finished quilt!!

Until next time,
