    I do 1 inch and clip every 1/2 inch. They it really frayes.

    I believe my directions call for a 1" seam for a rag quilt.

    Is a rag quilt the kind that has the raw edges of the seams showing on the right side if the fabric?

    you got it -- stack top, batting, and backing together usually a square, then quilt the square. When you have all the squares done sew them together, all seams on the right side. clip the seam allowance every 1/2 inch or so, being careful not to clip the seam. wash and dry. edges fray and become fuzzy and cozy. I did 4 for the bunk beds at the cabin that my grandsons sleep in, and I found clipping as you go is better than clipping after it is all put together. Clipping is very boring.

    Can someone tell me the site address to view the video of the guy using the weed whacker to fray his quilt? Thanks
