Hi everyone, I am new(very very new) to quilting. I am 57 yrs old. I have a disability. My right hand is completely paralyzed. I am making a rag quilt. I have found out that cutting the material is a big problem. I can't hold the ruler down hard enough to stay in one place. But anyway, I'll try my best. I have a question about batting. I have looked up many quilting sites, and one said you couldn't use polyester batting in a rag quilt. Had to be either flannel or cotton, they talked about how they would be better for the fraying. But if you have to cut your batting smaller than your blocks, how can you get fraying from the batting? The clerk at the store has never heard of flannel batting, so I bought cotton, which was very high I thought. I'm confused. I am sure I will enjoy this site and will find many helpful ideas.
