I made this for my grandson. He was visiting when I made it and was not happy with me when it came time to cut the rag edges of the quilt! He kept stoppig me. At 18 months, it was like he could tell this was for him. I had to hide while he was awake and also wait until at night while he slept to finish it. He cracked me up!

They are quite simple. I made one the very first time I ever sewed after viewing the step by step. This is the link address to the site I used to teach myself. http://quiltingintherain.blogspot.com/2011/02/rag-quilt.html

1) cut material (I use 10" squares)

2) cut batting (I use 8" squares)

3) place batting centered between 2 pieces of material and sew a "X" centered

4) attach squares together in rows with the 1" seams on the same side: ends up like this block/seam/block/seam/block etc.

5) attach rows together, again with the seams all on the same side

6) sew 1" from edge around the outer edge of blanket

7) cut slits in the seams to create the "rag" edge

I prefer my batting not to show and just have the outer shell material used in the "rag" part. Enjoy!!
