38 Snuggly Free Rag Quilt Patterns

Once you learn how to make rag quilts, you won't be able to stop! These frayed quilts are so easy to make, you'll get addicted to rag quilting. Check out our list of 38 Snuggly Free Rag Quilt Patterns to get new rag quilt ideas.

Rag quilt patterns are different from regular quilt patterns in several aspects. First of all, they employ a quilt-as-you-go method, meaning that each piece of fabric is sandwiched with its batting and backing before being stitched to the surrounding pieces. The technique that makes rag quilting unique from other quilting methods is the purposeful fraying of exposed seams. This gives rag quilts their characteristic ruffled or "raggedy" appearance. Their snuggly seams and durability make them wonderful baby quilts, but rag quilting can also be used to create rustic accessories and decorations.

Rag quilts have become my my most favorite thing to make. I make them all the time. First, I find them relaxing to work on and second, they are wonderful to just have around to give as gifts. They are beautiful and oh so cozy. They are easy to make as a a summer quilt or winter. Third, they are easy enough to make that even I can do it!!

love making baby rags quilts...give them in a sand pail with a book and sand toys

If I decided to make a rag project I would do the rag Pillow pattern. But - I do not like the look of the "raggies" myself so doubt I would do any without making them plain patchwork. Thanks, Lee
