Rag Quilt – Batting

Posted on: December 2, 2014

Rag Quilt – Part 1, Part 2

After getting all the fabric cut to size, the next step was to cut the batting.

The instructions said to cut the batting into 7in squares.

I have to say, this wasn’t my favorite step at all.  My cutting space is limited to the fact that I have a small cutting board.  Folding up batting to cut isn’t easy.  Batting is bulky and fluffy and just hard to work with on a small space.

I ended up just cutting the full sheet (45in x 60in) in half and cutting it with scissors into manageable strips before I used my ruler and rotary cutter.

It wasn’t easy, but I cut 30 of those 7in squares.

UntitledIt took me about two nights to do this since it took awhile to figure out how to manage it the first night.  Once I figured it out, it went pretty fast.

Next is to assemble the “sandwhiches” and sew them together…
