Rag quilt

These quilts are so easy. You cut your front and backing into squares and then sew them together with the other squares to that the seams are on the top. This way your front and back are already sewn together and there is no need to quilt it. You also don't have to worry about a nice seam because once you are done you snip all your edges and wash the blanket. This makes the edges fray making a nice texture. The hardest thing about this quilt is lining up the corners of the squares. My corners are not all lined up right but if you want to make it easier you can make a strip rag quilt. then all you have to do is be able to sew a straight line.
