Ragged edge quilt in recent mags?

Post by RMcC » Fri, 21 Jun 2002 12:22:14



Hi Group!

Does anyone remember seeing (or is it just me) a pattern in one of the
recent (last 3 or so months) quilting mags for a ragged edge quilt?  You
know the one - where you use a good fraying fabric and leave the edges
showing so that they fray when washed.
Any help to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
Rose
p.s. wouldn't it be a good idea if each quilting mag published a once a year
index of all the patterns in the mags they issued that year?

Raggedy Stars, page 27 of the July/August Quiltmaker.  I really want to make
a raggedy lap quilt for my DDIL for Xmas this year - think I'll plan on it!
I have lots of scraps, big and little left from their king sized flannel
quilt and the flannel quilt that is a WIP for our bed.

        They have one of these in Australian Patchwork & Quilting, vol 9,
no. 7  That pattern is just for squares put together and the edges
out... but I'm sure you could do other things as well.  I like the
look of the raggy seams combined with applique shapes on some of the
squares.

Hullo Rose
I've always bemoaned the absence of an index in my quilting mag.  Then,
out of the blue, early this year, an INDEX turned up.  I was actually
going to produce one myself and sell it to them!!! They must have read
my mind. <g>

Hi Jo,
Thanks. Yes, I plan to put something appliqued (maybe frayed edge applique)
on some of the squares. I was in a hurry to find this pattern to determine
yardage because a LQS is having their biggy sale tomorrow and I want to get
some brushed homespuns and maybe flannel. Have you used the brushed
homespun? It's a bit lighter than flannel and really appeals to me. Oh dear,
the charge card is crying as I speak!

I thought I hit a gold mine when I found a book of raggedy drunkard's
path-style patterns.  The one I made had three concentric circles layered
together, with the blocks cut into quarters afterward and rearranged.  I made
it very scrappy and loved it.  After one washing, it wasn't raggedy enough, so
I washed it again.  Somehow, in the second washing, something red bled onto the
white background in places, so I had to wash it again.  The third washing took
out the bleed--I used the Carbona dye-run stuff--but also "over-ragged" some of
the blocks so that they CAME APART.  :(  This was not mentioned in the pattern
book.

I can't find the original post re Quiltmaker mag. I thought someone said
that it was July/August, called Raddedy Stars, page 27. But there is no
year. I went to their website (Quiltmaker), got their customer service
800# and talked to someone they could not find pattern in either 2000 or
2001. I'm sure that this is not a new pattern because I'm seen this done
in flannel (which I lusted after). So if anyone has that year, I would
like to get the back issue. TIA

Nurse, just out of curiosity - what size seam allowances did the pattern
that you made use?  Most of the raggedy patterns I've seen call for 1/2" to
3/4" seams.  The pattern in the new Quiltmaker calls for 3/4" seams and says
when you sew the blocks together to use a short and narrow zigzag or double
stitch.  With the problems you had - I guess the double or zigzag is really
necessary.  I'll remember to do that when I make my raggedy quilt.

Sorry, this year for the Quiltmaker magazine pattern.  The original
requester said that she had seen it in the past month or so, so I didn't
post the year.
