Setting A Tattered Rag Quilt~~Autumn
Fabrics for an Autumn Rag Quilt,machine sewn,you will need scissors,tape measure,(can use a piece of cardboard for pattern,) 1 yard each of 6 coordinating fabrics, 2-1/2 yards for backing,1 roll batting,thread.
each quilt section batting and coordinating fabrics,same size-(11 by 6)
I have added my choice of fabrics in my quilt.
I happen to prefer the cotton.
pin all three sections together..top- batting-back
stitch crosswise each section set aside,,you will sew together all your sections before quilt is set together, I have by passed that to show you how to
cross stitch ..this is how the finished section will look
this is what will be snipped for the tattered rag look,
will look like this
Example 2 section together will look like this
snip the edges being careful do not cut into seam
Hubby set the layout.this mini quilt will have 36 blocks, then 3 borders in coordinating 1/2 blocks
when washed the seams will tatter
Example...my finished rose tattered quilt listed in next post...I will add the Autumn rag quilt as set together and the finished quilt smile~
Sewing the blocks together,start lengthwise
