Rag Quilts

I know to a lot of you this is a simple thing to make but to me this is the first two I have ever made and I am so proud of my self. They turned out cute and now I cant get enough of them. The only problem is it can be an expensive hobby. All you have to do is cut the squares one inch bigger then you want then put the two backsides together for both fabrics and sew them together side by side for how big you want them to be I did one that was 4x4 and another that was 5squaresx4squares. then when you sew them allow a 1/4-1/2 inch seam. them cut every 1/2 inch or so around all the seams and wash again and it is done it took me 1 hour for the 4x4 and 1-1/2 for the 5x4.

I love these kind of quilts! They look so cool when they have frayed a bit. I really cant wait to make my own!
