I recently bought a box of material from a gentleman off Craigs list. He was selling a sewing machine also, but his son broke it while I was there and it had no manual. Had cams, but I've never used those.
The box was a mixture of all types of fabric, mostly quilting. There was also a bunch of heavy material 100% cotton, per the label on it. It is kind of like denim but not really. There was also denim in the box. I have no idea what type of material this is.
I was thinking of making a rag quilt, not really sure how? But didn't know if I could use this heavy fabric. I bought flannel for the back, decided it would be heavy enough, so no batting.
Do you think this will work? Do I need to prewash all the material a couple of times to keep from shrinking? And exactly how do you make a rag quilt???
Can you tell that I'm a newbie??? I'm so confused! :roll: :roll: :)
