Thread: a different type of rag quilt question

    I am doing a jeans rag quilt. Been thinking of the pattern I wish to do it in as I have different color jeans to work with and more than enough to pull of a simple pattern. I was looking at the windows block at quilters cache it is 8".

    Now if I did this with the center being a different fabric than jean and did not rag that part but just the outside frame of the window block, would I have problems or would I be OK?

    This would make a lighter quilt that I good even back or do a reverse rag on. If I did not rag the inner window section on the front I could do it for the back right? Just make sure I have the 1/2 inch seam allowance.

    You shouldn't have any problems at all if you use the different fabric and don't rag the center. And yes you can rag the back of the inner window section. That should make a neat quilt.
    Make sure to post pics if you make it.

    I am assuming you are using older jeans, I would just make sure to prewash your other fabric so you do not have a shinkage issue. Please be sure and post a picture of this quilt, we would all love to see it :D

    Great I am going to make one block and see how it goes. I am going to change the pattern from the center to a soild square instead of 4 traingles. Should make it a bit easier.

    Thanks for reminding me about washing other fabric I have not done that and I bought it years ago.
