    I want to try and make a rag quilt for my sons new room. I have a panel that I want to use in the middle and try and do the rag squares on the outside. So how can I do this or should I do something different? Thank you for your help!

    I have done similiar raggy quilts (with a center). Just do it like a round robin. Measure the center and decide how big the squares should be. If you don't want a square, eventually you will add extra to just top & bottom. Sorry, I can't explain well. Maybe someone else will give a better explanation.
    The photo shows a center and the 1st round.

    Thank you I understand what you are saying. What do I do with the center do I put it together with the back piece and quilt it then start sewing the squares around the edges?

    Yes, that is exactly how to do it.

    Yes, you treat the center just like a regular "sandwich". The only difference is you work in rounds instead of rows. Good luck!
