Bordered Rag Quilt Tutorial
This blanket was made for my husbands Aunt for Christmas. I used Moda-Grace fabric in 9 inch squares and half squares around the border. My finished quilt was so beautiful that I wanted to keep it. My quilt measures roughly 63x84. Fits a twin size bed. Lets get started on the tutorial. You will need the following supplies.
1.) Set of 35 fat quarters of Moda Fabric: Grace
2.) All Natural bedding- Twin Size Bag
3.) Rotary cutter & mat
4.) Muslin 2.5 yards on a 60in bolt
5.) Two spools of Coats & Clark (Brown Seal thread 8380) 500 yds each spool
6.) Scissors or Cutting snips to rag the quilt
7.) Quilting Pins
You want to cut two 9 inch blocks from each fat quarter (70 total)
Cut Muslin into 9 inch blocks (86 total)
Cut batting into 8 inch squares (86 total)
Lay out your fabrics to decide how you want the quilt to look. I tried to keep from butting up similar patterns.
After that, lay your batting in the middle of the muslin square. The batting will be a half inch smaller than the block. Top with printed fabric, you can pin the corners if you like. Then sew on the diagonal from corner to corner on each block. Sew a chain of blocks all going in the same direction. Snip all threads and sew another chain sewing the opposite corner to corner to make a X on the block. Do the same thing to your 16 muslin squares.
This rag quilt tote was made from Moda-Grace fabrics also. It is a Christmas gift for my mother-in-law. Using 3inch blocks
