    Rag Quilt Help

    I am attempting to make a rag quilt using squares that I want to set diagonally, I want to add the half squares where needed on the edges but I cant find any patterns to show me how. Can anyone advise me on where I can get this information? Thank You

    I would make squares and cut them diagonally. Sew and rag as usual.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I have a ruler that shows the size square to cut in half for side triangles and the top and bottom corners.
    you do your rows on angle, not straight across so they are easy to do.Now i did green cornerstones. not always necessary.
    tallchick gave you a link that should help. just take it row by row. left row with block. then triangles on each side and corner one on top. done there. then go to second row and add triangles on each end. etc. It really isn't very difficult. you are on the right track.
