Baby Rag Quilt Tutorial Part 2: Sewing Your Rag Quilt Together
4-Take your back fabric and place it right side down. Lay the batting on top of it. See how there is a 1/2″ border all the way around?
Now take a piece of your top fabric and lay it right side up on top of the batting. I just laid it crooked so you could see how all the layers go together.
5-Using a straight stitch, sew an x in the middle of the square. Make sure you don’t sew all the way to the corners. You want to leave about 1/2″ at each corner. Basically you are just sewing over where the batting is. It was hard to see on the dark fabric, so I switched out for my pink fabric. Sorry to confuse you. 🙂
6-After you have completed all of your squares, it is time to start sewing them together. Pay close attention to your pattern so you are sewing them together correctly!
Line up all of the edges and pin one side:
When you open it, it will look like this on the front:
9- Now it is time to sew your rows together. Yippee!
Take the first row and lay it right side down. Place the second row on top, right side up.
Match up all the seams and pin them together:
Then place pins in between the seams:
Now sew down the side, using a 1/2″ seam. Sometimes it is a little tricky getting it even. I had to kind of push the top fabric through so that it wouldn’t bunch at the seams.
Keep pinning and sewing until you have them all sewn together.
