Rag Quilt Craft Group Meeting

Rag Quilting Craft group will be March 16th AT THE WOODRIDGE CHURCH BUILDING at 7 pm.  We hope that this will be a fun night.  All are welcome to come even if you don't want to make quilts.  Bring a project to work on and just chat with us.

I have a work sheet for what you will need fabric wise for this project.  If you are new to making rag quilts or sewing for that matter, this is a real easy project.  It is a forgiving project and you will hopefully find it doable.

To be practical we ask that you make either a baby or toddler size quilt.  They are quick and you will find much sucess.  I will give you information for other size quilts and you can make those another time.


Toddler size Quilt (40 inch by 60 inch) – Need about 4 to 5 yards of fabricBased on how many fabrics you want in your quilt will determine how much of each.  (Example – 2 fabrics buy 2 ½ yards of two colors, 4 fabrics = 1 to 1 ¼ yard of each)  Best to use flannel or other fabric that frays really well.

Baby size 30 inch by 36 inch– uses about 2 ½ yards total – 1 ¼ of 2 fabrics

Toddler size about 40 inch x 60 inch

Baby Size about 30 inch x 36 inch

Here is a link to instructions how to construct a rag quilt along with a guide to making larger quilts.  Click on EASY FLANNEL RAG QUILT INSTRUCTIONS to get this information.

We will be probably only be able to get the flannel cut out that night.  We will plan a second night to do the next steps. To cut the flannel we will need to have rotary cutters, self healing mats and long rulers.  Liberty and I both have these items.  Please bring them to this meeting if you have one.  You don't need to go out and buy these items.  Any questions please email me.
