It is time to start cutting for the rag quilt!
For the smaller quilt you will need:
120 5-inch squares of batting.
(Dexter is making sure the fabric is good to go too :) )
For the large square quilt you will need:
96 9-inch squares fabric.
48 7.5-inch squares of batting
As you can see, I have chosen a variety of patterns for each of the quilts. The larger square quilt includes regular cotton fabric and flannel. I have chosen the complete the back of the quilt in the flannel and the front in regular cotton. The smaller square quilt has all cotton squares.
For this step, the initial squares of fabric, does not need to be perfect. They need to grossly be the aforementioned size. Later in the project you will be trimming these squares down to the perfect size with your stencils (as noted in the first rag quilt tutorial post).
You can choose what ever kind of batting you like. I have chosen low loft polyester style.
Happy cutting! I am looking forward to working on this tutorial with you! Please let me know if you have any questions.
