The nice thing about rag quilts is, you can use different sized square templates. I normally use 5" squares. Count the number of squares you want across/down, adding in the frayed seams as well.
It really can be as small or as large as you want! Have fun making it!

I sew 1/2 inch in on my seams so on a 6 inch block that is about 5 inch wide (minus what ever the material shrinkage is) So if you want a 40 inch wide quilt its 8 block wide. etc.

I have never made a quilt before, but would love to make some for my two young daughters. This quilt looks like something that my daughters would love and one that I actually think I could do.

I make many rag quilts each year - donating to an organization I belong to, who in turn give to a local Children's Hospital. These are so easy to make. I believe anyone who can cut out fabric squares, sew a straight line/seam, and cut/fray each square can make one! Try it and you'll be hooked!!

Yes these make fantastic quilts for beginners. My wife and I started quilting 2 1/2 years ago and our first quilt was a rag quilt. I have probably made more then 50 of them now and each new one I make I love more then the last.

Wow, you've done all this in only 2 1/2 years...great job! I made my first one this Christmas and very proud of the result. I embroidered random squares with hearts and daisies. Love your combinations.

I have a little ADHD issues lol. Sitting still is not my thing, So to keep busy I quilt. I am a programmer by day and a quilter by night. My first year quilting I made a lap or baby quilt for every relative in the family. My biggest joy now is when friends and neighbors have baby's so that I can give away some of the many quilts I have made.

Not always Richard. I made rag quilts for each of my grandkids, included their receiving blankets as a few of the squares, and had a friend make monogram squares with the year and from Nana. Their mom got rid of my granddaughter's when it no longer fit her youth bed.

Oh that is so sad that she got rid of the quilt that is a shame. My 18 year old son still uses a quilt my mother made me when I was 8 and we fight over it all the time I think its mine and he thinks its his.

Love the varieties, combinations, and styles in your rag quilts. Interesting you have both Case quilt and John Deere. Equal opportunity tractor lover, huh? :)

I grew up and live in the city. But I married a girl from a small town and her brother and dad both love Jon Deere. Her sister married a guy that loved Case and that is how I ended up with both. My brother in law (wife's brother) has had us make 3 of them now as his kids keep taking the ones I make for him.

LOVE to make this for our FIRST expected GREAT GRAND BABY! Do you sew across each square before you join them or after they are ALL JOINED?

acrazyqui444253 on craftsy.com
acrazyqui444253  April 3, 2014 4:31 PM

I sew each square together, making a row. Then I sew the rows together, and finish up with sewing around the entire quilt (to fray the edges)! Have fun making this for your Great Grand Baby!! Congratulations!!

I sew all of the crosses first and then sew them into rows. Once I have all the rows I sew them into a single quilt. The pattern explains this process well. The picture on the pattern is basically all of the left over extra pieces I have (I tend to make more then I need just in case I change my mind along the way) If you make one you will love it.

They are great quilts for those just getting started into quilting. Easy to make and simple to finish. My wife and I have made over 200 quilts now and still tend to make at least one rag quilt for ever 4-5 pieced quits as we love making them and the way they look.

I haven't made this quilt yet because I haven't had time. I just loved it and though by the time I get round to wanting to make it I wouldn't be able to find it. I am thinking of retiring this year so am planning my projects. Thank you

I purchased this pattern a while ago because I had never made one before. It was clear, concise and easy to follow. It took me a bit of time the first one but the 2nd quilt went very quickly. I enjoyed making them and since I have 12 grandchildren.....2 down....10 to go! Thank you!

Rag quilts are addictive. We made them for all the brothers and sister's and all of the nieces and nephews a couple Christmas's back was a lot of fun.

Rag quilts are a lot of fun. They are great to use up left over scraps like the one in the picture or create fun or complex patterns and great for kids that like to play with the ruffled edges.

How do you keep the ruffled edges from completely unraveling over time?

Richard Healey on craftsy.com
Richard Healey  November 4, 2013 9:50 AM

Mostly not worried about them unraveling. Like all quilts if its used they will wear out. I have a old tied quilt that my mother made me more then 30 years ago. It is so thin now that you can see through it but I will never stop loving it. But since it was worn out it got replaced on the bed with a new one I made. So I guess the trick is to keep making more so they dont wear out haha.

Just being sewed around will keep the unraveling just to where it is sewed...

Yep the ragging will stop at the tread line. As long as you put good seams in your good to go.
