Cheater Rag Quilt Tutorial

Cheater Rag Quilt Tutorial

From the Blogger: "This is a fun technique for using a precut layer cake to create a cheater rag quilt. This is not your traditional rag quilt. This comes together really quickly and is a great project for beginners or for kids who are wanting to learn to sew a quilt. The front and back are the same, and there is no binding, which makes it a really quick and easy project. The edges of the fabric are sheared, which makes a great edge on each square."

I haven't done much quilting, and I find it pretty intimidating, so this project is a great way to test the waters. Plus, I can use up some of the fun floral fabric remnants I have in my stash.

Alicia's page had no place to comment so I'm doing it here. The directions say "The edge shouldnt do too much fraying since it has been left with the sheared edge in tact!" What was done for the edges to be called 'sheared' (cut off?), and why does a quilt have tact? (I didn't know they could talk, much less be tactful.)

I seriously love the colors in this pattern. Plus, it looks insanely easy. I think I could finish this in a day!
