Has anyone ever made a rag quilt with fabrics other than pure cottons?
My mom passed away earlier this year, and I have saved most of her clothes. I would like to make small, lap sized rag quilts for her remaining sisters. The clothes are made of different types of fabrics, some cottons, and some poly. She had many knit tops and some fleece items that I plan to use as the backing for the squares. I have the rag dies for my Accu-Quilt so the cutting would be fairly easy. I'm just not sure how the different fabrics would react when washed, and wondering if anyone else had tried something like this? I will make up a small sample to test also, but if anyone has experience with a similar project, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!
