Expertise

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.

Experience in the area

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.

2014-11-16 ragquilt square:

As long as your flannel batting is the same size as your squares, then it will be sewn into the seam and that will keep it in place.  If you cut your flannel batting smaller than your front/back squares

2014-10-10 Cost:

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
