Instructions on How to Make a Rag Quilt - No Quilting Required

Rag quilts are great in that they require no hand or machine quilting.

Rag quilts are great in that they require no hand or machine quilting. Today a person will see rag quilts made out of old blue jeans, which is very popular, pre-quilted fabrics, flannels, woolen fabrics, and many others. My grandmother had a rag quilt made out of squares cut from worn out men's suit coats. Do not let the name fool you; rag quilts are very beautiful quilts that add a special look to any decor.

The following instructions are for a blue jean rag quilt with the finished size being approximately 70 inches wide by 84 inches long (twin size), and you will need the following items:

Sewing machine (unless you prefer to sew each quilt square by hand), and thread.

Two yards each of light blue and dark blue denim fabric (44 inches wide).

One pair of sharp pointed scissors.

Cut 60, seven and one-half inch by seven and one-half inch squares from each of light blue and dark blue fabric, for 120 squares.

Here is the important part, sew the light blue and dark blue squares WRONG sides together using a one-half inch seam allowance, alternating the squares and rows as you go. Each row should have 10 squares, and there should be 12 rows.

When you have all squares and rows sewn together, you should have one-half inch seams showing around all sides of each square on the right side of the fabric. With your pointed scissors, cut each seam on the diagonal from the outer edge of the seam up to the stitch line. Be sure you do not cut through your stitching. Make these diagonal cuts every one-half inch, all the around each square.

After cuts have been made, wash the quilt and the seams will become frayed, which indicates the rag part of the quilt. Repeated washings will enhance the rag look.

For a variation, try using bright red thread when sewing your squares and if you are making a blue jean rag quilt, add a square cut with a pocket here and there from an old pair of blue jeans.
