Definitely stay away from knits or synthetic fabrics as they won’t fray along the cut edges to get that rag look you’re going for. Stick with cottons for the best results.

Q1: What size squares would you say are small to medium?? Ex. 2″ or 6
Q2: What size square do you consider large and up?. 8″ or 10″
Q3: What size seam allowance is used for the larger ones ?
Thank you B.

Hi Bren, most of my rag quilts either include denim or flannel fabrics. Since they are heavier weight fabrics, I consider a 5″ square the smallest to easily work with. The resulting 4″ square is a good finished block. The largest rag quilt blocks I’ve used are 9″ & 10″ squares. They work well with flannel but can look ‘loose’ when made with regular quilting cotton. The larger blocks without any flannel included will work best with sewing an ‘X’ through the middle to keep everything together. Regardless of the size block, all rag quilts use a 1/2″ seam allowance with 1/4″ clips. NOTE: All rag quilts made with batting must be pre-quilted with an ‘X’ for best results!
