This 64" X 72" raggedy quilt was made for my Granddaughter. It is made of 100% cotton assorted fabrics and 100% cotton Warm N' Natural batting. It is a two sided quilt in that one side is ragged edges and the other side is the sewn seams. The seams are sewn 1/2" instead of the normal 1/4" quilt seams. The 8 1/2" blocks are machine quilted as you go. The blocks are layered one block, right side down, then a piece of batting cut 6 3/4" laid on top, then another 8 1/2" fabric square placed on top of the pile. With a walking foot, sew an X from corner to corner. Sew the blocks together in a row. After constructing each row, the seams are carefully cut every 1/4" thru the edge but not into the sewing! After all the blocks are sewn together, stitch around the entire quilt edge 1/2" in, sew it twice. Then rag cut the edges every 1/4" just as the blocks are done, being careful not to cut thru the stitching. I did not add a binding on this quilt as I want it to "rag".
This quilt is washable and dryable and will rag more each time it is washed. They are fun quilts to make and will not require special care. I love them because it can be taken to a picnic, the beach, etc. I made one for myself and I love it!!
I love Fon's and Porter's rag scissors for this cutting process.
