MAKE 3 ragquilt blocks in BLACK & WHITE & RED for your 1 partner. (One of these colors may be in thread only! or Embroidery or applique!) All fabric should be unwashed high quality 100% cotton. THESE Ragquilt blocks are made by taking a 9 inch square of solid fabric for the bottom (Back of the quilt) ...& then center a 6 1/2 inch square of batting (the type of flat batting that comes in a roll) in the middle... then center the top piece of 9x9 fabric for the block. This top piece should be made of patterned fabric. It may be pieced, appliqued, embroidered or decorated in some way with a design that is totally washable! Then you sew the 3 layered "sandwich" together by sewing around the square just inside the perimeter of the batting. A zigzag or any special beautiful stitch works nicely ;-)

IT"S very important to leave raw edges Around your squares, and don't sew within 1 inch of the edges...the quilt will be put together by sewing the squares together in rows with the raw edges sticking up on the front. Then all your rows are sewn together so all raw edges are facing up on the front! Then they are snipped and freyed...a blossom rag quilt pattern is on joann's fabric web site...if u have any ?s please pm me! ;-)

Does the batting have to be cotton as well?
