    I've just unearthed a box of fleece pieces and would like to use them for some raggy quilts. What's the best way to use them, please? Can I use them by themselves or do I need to conbine them with cottons? Also, what's the best way to make one? Thank you, in anticipation, for all your help and advice!

    Fleece doesn't really rag like cottons and flannels. It sort of curls. It's not the same look as cotton and flannel but it can be very cute.

    I've actually used fleece at the "batting" in rag quilts, but never as the outer pieces, it wont "rag" at all. So I guess it depends on the look and feel you want in your quilt. If you want fluffy/raggy then its a no, if you want kinky/curly then its a yes. Enjoy the process, Im sure it will turn out great !!!
