How to make a raggy quilt

Depending on the size of your quilt, you can use any sized of squares; however, generally, most people use 6”-10″ squares. Most people prefer 8”; yet there is always a 3/4″ seam allowance no matter what size square you choose. Just remember that when picking a size for your square that the panel will be smaller once it is sewn together.

There are typically two to four layers of fabric in a rag quilt, which is important to consider when you want at least one layer of fabric that frays a lot. This gives the seam allowances an optimal frayed look. Additionally, I love using fleece on the back side of my rag quilts because it makes them extra soft and comfortable!

Fact

 The bumblebee bat is the world’s smallest mammal.

Weighing in at 0.05 to 0.07 ounces, with a head-to-body length of 1.14 to 1.29 inches and a wingspan of 5.1 to 5.7 inches, the bumblebee bat—also known as Kitti’s hog-nosed bat—is the smallest mammal in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. To see this tiny bat for yourself, you’d have to visit one of a select few limestone caves on the Khwae Noi River in Kanchanaburi Province of southwest Thailand.
