Rag Quilt – Cutting the fabric
Posted November 24, 2014on:
I cut the fabric earlier this week.
It was my very first time cutting fabric and I have to tell you, Youtube makes it look easy.
It may have been my supplies.
I’m using a fairly small cutting mat. It’s the one that I use for my papercrafting. I’m not using one of those flat rulers that you can find in the fabric section of a craft store. That ruler used to be my brother’s, who used it during his college art days. The only thing “fabric crafting” that I purchased for this project was that rotary cutter.
My cuts weren’t perfect like they looked on YouTube, but once I realized that I would eventually be “ragging” the edges, I was ok with a little imperfection.
It took about two different days to get all the fabric cut into 9 inch squares.
I made 14 squares of these two colors. Sorry the color is off. It was evening when I cut them and I had to depend on the lamp in our house.
I made 16 squares of each of these patterns.
The next item I have to cut is batting.
Then, I start to sew!
