I love your quilt patterns, but you are not listing the yardage for the quilts. I especially like the Easiest Thrifty Rag Quilt. I have quilt frames, but don't have another person to help me roll as i advance rows

How much fabric is always one of my questions. For me, going to the fabric store is like a child going into a candy store. So far I have not run into the problem of not having enough fabric. I also tend tend to over buy fabric. The last one I made was for my grandson. I measured out the bed it was to cover and figured on 10 inch squares and figured out how many it would take to cover the bed allowing for a 1.5 inch loss on each squre.. When I got to the store I let them figure out how much I would need to cover the bed, then tripled it taking into consideration it would be three layers. The back was denim, the middle was flannel and the top was a variety of homespun. Honestly, that was the hardest part of making that quit....figuring out how much fabric. It came out great and I had fabric to spare. I really need to use up all the spare fabrics from all my projects. That might be next!

How much fabric do you buy for the "Easy Rag Quilt"? Also how many different styles of fabrics?

Ive made this quilt several times and it's quick and easy and everyone who's received one, just loves it, it gets better with washing


This would be a beautiful project for gifts for new babies or even grandchildren!

I am working on one for my sister. Whomever decided this is an "evening" project must live in Alaska where it never gets light for six months!!!!

I will, tho!

This rag qilt looks fantastic and I'm anxious to try it.
