Rag Quilt – Cutting the fabric

Posted on: November 24, 2014

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!
