    Is flannel the only fabric that rag quilts are made with?

    No, I made mine with denim foundation squares that I strip quilted cotton scraps onto.

    Fleece scraps. They don't really rag, though--you fringe each block.

    Denim, corduroy, flannel, homespuns, even muslin. Anything that will unravel.

    How did it turn out. I have quite a bit of cotton I would like to use up.

    I have seen them using a lot of diff fabrics. As long as it ravels it will bloom. Fleece would be a different look, it will curl.

    I make mine with flannel and have been adding minkie and chenille. The later don't rag real well but they add texture on the baby quilts. I also only use a half in seam allowance and put binding on the edges instead of snipping the edges. I think it gives the quilt a more finished look.
