If you're new to the world of quilting, you may know that it's not for the faint of heart. Luckily, there are a number of quilt patterns that are perfect for beginners, including the basic rag quilt.
If you're learning to sew, the rag quilt is great because it's simply a matter of cutting and sewing straight lines. Even if your lines aren't perfectly straight, the frayed ragged edge really helps to camouflage any imperfections.
These beautiful rag quilts end up with a very cuddly finish that looks well loved right from the start.
