This raggedy quilt was a fun project to put together last week. This is a simple quilt with instant gratification. I didn’t purchase any new fabric for this project; both the squares on top and the flannel ‘lining’ that you cannot see were fabrics that I already had on hand.
This quilt, in fact, garnered one order to make a double/full-size bed and I expect more will follow.
The top are all random cotton fabrics; prints, solids, batiks and a host of others and the ‘lining’ is also of various cotton flannels.
Putting it together is the fun part; effectively, it is self-quilted. ALL of the seams are sewn ‘on the wrong side’ and are about 1 inch deep. All of the seams end up on the outside, and once all are put together, each seam in clipped up to, but not through the stitching, every ¼ to ½ inch apart.
Once all the seams are clipped, and it does take a while, the entire quilt is washed and dried repeatedly in an automatic washer and dryer. This process is what makes all the seams “raggedy”.
I used bits and pieces of the remaining cottons to sew a binding then ended up being 2 inches deep, finished.
