How to make Rag Quilts
This is my first guest post! Oooh, I’m so excited! I asked Beckie from Infarrantly Creative if she could do a tutorial on a Rag Quilt, decades years months days ago (my days, months and years all run together) – I explained that I was special and needed LOTS of pictures to understand what she was talking about. If you not into sewing – go see her site just for her Roadkill Rescues…I could stay there for hours and look at all the creativity!She came through! Thanks Beckie – You are a doll!
She did hers a little different so hop on over there and see hers as well.
Now on to the guest post….
How to make Rag Quilts!

Walking foot – this is a strong recommendation! (If you don’t have one they sell them on Ebay for cheap seller: dafent)
Fabric (you can use anything 100% cotton – I like flannel the best because it is so cozy)
Batting – I use Warm & Natural (Joann Fabrics) A walking foot looks like this. You don’t need, need, need one but if you are going to make a few they are definitely worth the investment. Just make sure you order the right one for your particular machine.
- Throw 49” x 63” -11.25 yards of fabric – 63 quilt sandwiches
- Large throw 63” x 77” -18.50 yards of fabric – 99 quilt sandwiches
- Crib 35” x 49” -6.25 yards of fabric – 35 quilt sandwiches
