    Raggy quilt with Accuquilt go

    I bought my Accuquilt Go mainly because I thought the raggy quilt die would speed things up. However, putting the squares together has increased my use of profanity. Please---I need help on how to put these squares together without the fringe tucking into seams at the wrong places!

    I made my rag quilt using the go, I found if I cut all three layers of the block together helped immensely. I used a layer of cotton, flannel for my batting and flannel for my backing. I laid all 3 pieces on my die and cut them out. This helped mesh them together. I didn't have trouble with the raggey edges getting out of control when I sewed them together. I have read on here that some will put a piece of blue painters tape on the fringes to keep them together when sewing the blocks together.

    I too bought mine for the same reason and love it. I keep lots of different squares sandwiched together for when I need a fast gift. I make my batting smaller than the blocks. If it's the cut edges getting in your way you can always use painters blue tape on them to keep them out of the way. I had this concern before I bought it and went to a store to try it out and seen how easy it is to do. I'd never get one done if I had to cut all those edges on my own.
