How to make baby girl rag quilt

I think I have sewed probably around 25 of these quilts in the last 6 years or so. They make for a great tummy time blanket especially if you have various textures or play blanket. The great thing about rag quilts is that they are very forgiving. A couple years ago, a good friend and I took a quilting class. Although it was super-fun because I had amazing company, I soon realized I was in over my head! Although they take quite a bit of time to make simply because all the steps, they are really pretty easy.

How To Make A Baby Rag Quilt

Site Logo

We have an awesome video tutorial on how to make this adorable baby rag quilt in strips and we also have written instructions below.

Just scroll down to find it all! This is the softest little quilt made of flannel. The best part about it is how dang easy it is to make! Make a fabric sandwich like the picture above and below! Now sew a seam down the middle of each fabric sandwich to hold all three pieces together. Once you have sewn a seam down each fabric sandwich strip lay out your quilt. Snip fabric with scissors along each sewn line.

Bind it Wash it Oh and check out my other baby rag quilts HERE!! Sisters Meg and Steph discovered that while living the life of poor, newlywed, college students, with fresh little babies in the middle of The Great Recession they could still have what they needed and wanted if they got to work and created things with their own hands. This mindset has saved them thousands of dollars in living expenses, and as they share their knowledge with others, the savings keeps growing.

So stinkin cute!! Thanks for posting! I'm going to have to try that for 2! Your quilt is amazing. I have just made my first one with squares but I love the idea of strips of fabric. Flannel seems to be quite hard to get here in the UK but I am constantly on the lookout for it.

Thanks for the inspiration. Just stumbled upon your blog via Pinterest. Love this sweet quilt. I don't really sew much I think that this would be perfect for a beginner. I love this idea and am making one for my little boy! I haven't done something like this before and was wondering if you could explain how to bind the edge of the blanket.

Rather than bind the edge you can sew the same size seam as the rest of the quilt and snip it too. That way it will be raggy all over. Annie here is a little Youtube video link that explains wonderfully how to complete a binding! Love this! I have always wanted to make a quilt but trying to quilt huge layers together scares me.

I had better start making one for my son's birthday this month!! I have never seen a rag quilt without being made with squares, this looks great with the stripes, I might have to try it. I absolutely love this quilt. I found your blog also through pinterest! I just had a question. I notice you say to basically have 7 small and 7 large but on your picture when its laid out there are only 6 and 6.

Can you explain why? Did it just not look good? I am just asking because it would be my first time making a rag quilt. Thank you so much! It was a little difficult finding the perfect pattern that I loved but with a little time and effort all 7 strips work out wonderfully!

Megan, that is the size of this quilt? I would like to make a larger one so I wondered what size yours is so I can adjust for mine!

This is really cute. Do you think that a cotton fabric would work as well as the flannel? I would also like to make the quilt a little larger to put on the end of my bed as a throw. Should I make it wider and longer? Thank you for such a great idea. Yes, I wondered about using cotton fabric with a flannel inner piece as well??? Hi all.. I would suggest not using cotton fabric. It has the tendency to fray terribly and you will find strings everywhere for a long time if it is used to make a rag quilt.

I found this out the hard way a while back. As far as the dimensions of my quilt it turned out being 41"x47". Hope this helps : I think I will post a little blurb to follow up with questions a little later. I found you pinned on pinterest and will definitely have to make one like this some day! I am about to start making my first rag quilt soon. I've made many of these from squares So glad I saw this on pinterest.

Hope to try this pattern one day. Will one side be flat and the other side fringed? Thanks for your help in advance You've made this tutorial so easy that I truly feel I can do it!

Thank you so much for sharing! I've never made a quilt before, so I'm sorry if this is a silly question. I really want to make this quilt, but how do you "bind it? Kala - that is not a silly question at all. I came across your quilt on Pinterest and I love it! I have been searching for quite a while for a rag quilt pattern that is simple and well written and you nailed it! Thanks so much for sharing this pattern.

I'm starting my quilt today and will send you a link when it done so you can see how it turned out. I don't bind my rag quilts. I run a line of stitching around the edges and snip there, too.

Rag quilts are so awesome!! Denim makes a great rag quilt, too!! I'm making one with two jelly rolls and coordinating fabric. First quilt I've ever made and your tutorial was my inspiration. I didn't wash the flannel before hand. In fact I suggest that to don't. It works out better with fresh-off-the-bolt flannel! Good Luck! I found you on pinterest and i adore this quilt! I'd like to make it for a friend Is just one side of the quilt "raggy?

Or have you somehow connected the strips so that both sides of the quilt will need to be snipped and "raggy? Camille - Happy to help! Only one side is snipped and the other is smooth. Hope this helps. If you need anymore help or have any other questions feel free to ask! Good luck! I've been making these strippy rag quilts for years! I love them - and people love them as gifts!

I never could get into the time it would take to make a block square one. Great tutorial! I think you've inspired many! I love this quilt like so many others. I was just wondering if it might work with a fleece fabric as the batting for warmth with flannel or soft cotton on the outside for comfort. You have inspired so many people - even me! I never usually "get around" to doing pretty things, just the practical ones, but I feel i might attempt this one.
