Ragtime Quilt Yardage


Based on the original Ragtime Quilt by Quilt Company

Throw

9 fabrics

1.25 yards each

Large
Throw

63" x 77"
 

15 fabrics

1.25 yards each

Full Size

77" x 91"
 

12 fabrics

2.5 yards each

Queen
Size

98" x 112"
 

18 fabrics

Number of fabrics may be increased or decreased by assorting yardage in increments of 5/8 yards. For example, in queen, use 5 yards for 9 fabrics or for large throw use 5/8 of 30 fabrics for more variety.

 

Minkee Blankee

 

Simply layer the following dimensions wrong sides together, trim evenly and apply traditional quilt binding (for best results: increase binding width to 3 or even 4 inches) Minkee has a slight stretch (more on the cross grain between selvages) pin frequently and use a walking foot to decrease presser foot pressure to reduce stretch.

Batting Optional

 

 

 

Content: 100% Synthetic -- 58" wide -- machine washable

For best results: keep it simple, pin every 1/2" to 1" and watch directional stretch. 
Flannel can/will shrink, Minkee won't, consider prewashing flannel.  Work with flannel on
top, this creates less stretch.
