    How would you determine if you have homespun fabric in your stash already. I was looking at the rag quilts and I have the fabric that I think will look good as a rag quilt but have know idea if it is a homespun or not. Any suggestions?

    They are a looser weave and ravel easy.

    Homespun will generally look the same on both sides of the fabric since it is woven and not printed on.
