I am an expert rag quilter. I have made over 100 rag quilts and would love to assist others with questions and methods. I don't know much about actual quilting like machine or hand quilting or applique. I am, however, the resident expert on rag quilting in my town. If you want to make a rag quilt, I am your woman.
I have been sewing for 12 years and rag quilting for 4. I have experienced just about every pitfall there is in rag quilting. Check out my quilts at audreysragquilts.etsy.com.

I would ask what design they want and then figure out just how much fabric you will need for what they want. I would then use $5 a yard as a standard value. Some fabrics will cost you $3/yd, some will
I honestly don't know. I think I lose about 2-4" around when I wash the quilts on hot and dry them on high heat. They also pill like crazy when you wash them like that. If you wash them in cold water
