i made this little rag quilt in just about an hour. will use it for a doll quilt for my grandaughter, but actually made it to sample the fabrics. it is homespun and i needed to see how it would hold up. so far so good.
will let you know if i make the larger version.

nanabirdmo,
I just love it!
I love all the rag quilts and other items.
Did you use batting or fabric or something else inside?
I started working on one for my DD to take to Kindergarten for nap time.
Then, my machine started acting up, so it's been put on hold. I wanted the quilt to be light, so I used a very small piece of thin batting in each of the squares.

Wouldn't these make cute placemats!?!

thank you, i love rag quilts too. they are the snuggliest. i use batting. cut it one inch smaller all around than the fabric and use 1 inch seam allowance.
i'm getting ready to make one out of denim and will probably use flannel on the back with nothing inside. denim is so heavy. the rag flannel i made with batting is pretty heavy and i figure denim would probably weigh a ton:) would love to hear from someone who has made a rag out of denim.

I have been cutting out denim squares for a rag quilt...someday...
Flying_V_Goddess made a denim quilt, but it wasn't a raggedy one.
Someone on here did, I THINK, make one...
I did a search, but I couldn't find it/them. ?

I made a denim rag quilt it was so heavy, my wrists ached from holding it. I used walking foot for some seams and off set them so they would not be so many layers. have fun :roll: :D

Funny you mentioned placemats. I made Raggedy John Deere Placemats for my kitchen. I didn't get to take pictures of them, and they are already packed up so I will as soon as we get unpacked..well I jumped ahead of myself..I should say as soon as we get moved. LOL

What a beautfiul doll rag quilt! Homespun fabrics always seem to rag the best. Great job!

when you have made the rag quilts did you baste your batting in or just pin it? jeanette
