You can buy pre-cut rag quilting squares that are ready to be sewn together. This takes a step outta your way and makes creating your own quilt even easier. There are many types of fabrics and patterns out there so look through the selections and find exactly what you want for your rag quilt. You can find different sizes of pre-cut squares depending on the size and look that you want for your rag quilt. I like flannel because it is so soft, it rags great and every time you wash it, it gets softer and cozier. I also love chenille as well because it is really soft as well. It is much more expensive than flannel squares are so for people first starting out I would recommend flannel. Then once you get confident in your quilting skills you can venture off into more expensive materials. Make your mistakes on cheaper quilting fabric!
