Ladies, I want to have a go at a rag quilt and thought I would post here how I think it is done before I start so you lovely ladies can point out where I'm going wrong before I get there :D
Top - Denim, Back - Patterned Fleece, Filling - Plain Fleece
Cut fabric into 7" strips
Layer strips - top (face down), filling, back (face up), back (face down), filling and top (face up) and sew (with 1/2" seam)
Cut into 7" squares (resulting in 2 x 7" squares sewn together)
Not sure about pressing here ??
Arrange squares and sew together to get desired quilt width
Repeat until desired number of rows sewn
Sew rows together
My main concern is whether sewing machine will be able to cope at the corners where 4 seams meet, that's 4 layers of denim and 8 layers of flannel!!
Also, do I need to sew x's in the squares or is that just for rag quilts that use traditional wadding?
Many thanks in advance for your help ladies
