Striped Rag Quilt – Free Pattern

Hey loves! What a pleasure to meet you here once again. We are very happy to know that you count on us to learn new patterns. And don’t think we don’t get anxious every time we learn something new. Today we are going to learn the Striped Rag Quilt, a super delicate pattern. If made with children’s prints, pastel colors, it’s perfect to use in the little ones room. It can be a quilt to complete the decor or baby trousseau.

Quilts are very important because they can be used as blankets to keep our little ones warm and cozy. It’s a beautiful gift option for nephews, godchildren, great selling option and having an extra at the end of the month. When we are going to sew for the little ones, you should always take into account that they are more sensitive. Regardless of color and print, choose quality fabrics that are soft to the touch and don’t irritate the skin.

Before using, remember to wash the quilt as well. As much as we take care, it can get dust, pieces of thread and we don’t want this to hurt the little ones. This quilt has incredible detail between the fabrics, and it’s a lot easier than it looks. For this you will need a little more fabric, to make this “leftover” between the seams, but it’s not much.
