    I'm working on the Simplicity 2935 Butterfly Rag Quilt.
    I'm stuck at the part where you attatch 4B to 5B, I think this is ONLY the 3rd step!
    Simplicitys pattern pieces don't even match up, which is the exact same as what I have cut out. Maybe and PROBABLY I've done something wrong! I'm frustated, so thus I have walked away, cooked dinner and took a shower.
    I'd like to get this done. If anyone could or would help me out by giving me some sort of instruction, I'd be greatly appreciative!
    THANKS for looking, even if you can't help me, but at least you tried by looking to help!! :-D :thumbup:

    Rag quilts are really easy. Even if you get the pieces a little too big or too small, you can still make it work. Check your measurements and cut the pieces down if needed. Otherwise, you can just fudge them together, since you'll be "ragging" the edges and it won't show.

    I KNOW you can do this!!! Just read through ALL the directions first. Take your time!! You'll get it! You go girl!!!

    I'll try to fudge the pieces together, and I cut them out just as the instrucions said too. I read the instructions the day before I even got out the fabric. Then the day of I read them again then I began cutting. I just hope this turns out. Thanks for your help so far!!

    4B and 5B are not aligned.
