Creating a Rag Quilt Step 1

To create a rag quilt you must first know what a rag quilt is.  A rag quilt is similar to a patchwork quilt that you make without quilt frames, the old fashion quilting process.  But it is assembled differently.  You create single blocks and connect them together and Quilt them as single blocks and then you connect them together.  Wash and dry to fray and your done.  Your saying to yourself what fray my brand new quilt? Yes you fray a rag quilt to give it that special look of the seams.  Over the next few weeks I will go though that full process. Giving both pictures and explanations as to how this is done from beginning to end.  It is a fun project that you can easily get your kids interested in helping you out with.

It IS a fun way to make a quilt and I've made a few. I made mine from homespun material - it's kind of old fashioned looking, can be masculine, and frays very easily because the thread count is so low.
