This video tutorial shows you how to make a rag quilt using square pieces of fabric and fleece for extra softness. The video instructions illustrates each step in detail and the technique is also explained fully in the video.
Quilts tend to be smooth surfaced with different designs made from sewing together fabric pieces. This quilting method produces a ‘rag quilt‘ with the seams on show on one side. This adds character to the quilt. The more you wash it, the fluffier the seams get and the quilt is more textured. To get this effect, the quilt is made differently than other quilts. Instead of sewing the panel, then adding the batting to get the ‘quilt sandwich’, for a rag quilt you make smaller fabric ‘sandwiches’ and then sew them together to get your rag quilt panel.
Handy hint : When creating a quilt using a fleece or textured fabric, make sure that all the pieces are sewn with the softness of the fabric going in the same direction.
