    Hi, thinking about making a rag quilt but I'm looking for something a little different. Any idea how I could create this type of square?

    Thanks :)

    It is a stack and slash. put all your fabrics on top of each other and use rotary cutter to cut through the pile in different directions.then remove one piece from each fabric to sew back together.

    Here's how I would do it.

    Cut out your squares as you normally would in the size you want them to be. Remember you'll be having many seams in the block itself, so you'll have to make it a big enough block.

    Cut blocks out of different colors of fabric, all the same size.

    Stack them and cut vertically and horizontially. Then take one of the cuts and move it to the bottom of the stack, take another cut and move it to the middle of the stack. Keep doing this until you have a different color in each of your blocks.

    Then sew together all the cut you've made to form that block.

    Then sew the blocks together.

    I hope that makes sense..

    This can work for a rag quilt. I sould draw out each pattern piece then add your seam allowance that are required when doing a rag quilt. I agree with

    Then sew together all the cut you've made to form that block.

    I thought you made one cut then flip one to bottom ,resew, then cut again, move two to bottom ,resew, ect I tryed once making all the cuts but couldn't get to sew back together ended up with lots of little pieces in scrap bag :(:(
