This is my 65" X 76 1/2" personal Rag Time Quilt made of assorted 100% Cotton fabrics and Warm N' Natural batting. It was rotart cut, machine pieced and machine quilted as you go. One 5 1/2" unfinished fabric square is placed right side down, then a 5" square of batting is laid on top of that piece of fabric, then add another 5 1/2" square of fabric right side UP. Sew (Quilt) from corner to corner in an X formation. Lay this aside and continue to build blocks until you have the desired amount to make your quiilt. I used 238 completed squares and sewed them 14 finished blocks across and 17 down. Usually a 3/4" seam is used, but I chose to do a 1/2" seam as I sewed the blocks together. The outer edge does NOT have a border or a binding. I only sewing one line completely around the edge about 1/2 in. As this quilt is used and repeadedly washed, it will "rag" more. My cat Moses and I love to cuddle up in this quilt! There is nothing better than my comfort cat and a cozy quilt I do not have to be overly concerned about!! I call it my controversal quilt because some people do not like the exposed seams, "Rags" as they are called. Moses and I think it is the "Cat's Meow"!!!!
