Four-Patch Rag Quilt Pattern
Rag quilt patters are easy to make and make an excellent project for beginners and experienced quilters. The pattern is stitched with 5 different fabrics of varying contrast. Alternate plain squares with 4 patch blocks of contrasting material to make a block. Most people recommend using flannel for its durability and because you do not need to stitch the edges to keep them from fraying.
Nine Patch Quilt Pattern
The nine-patch quilt pattern is sewn with two fabrics. The fabrics swap locations in half of the blocks. Then frames are sewn around nine different patches. First add a dark color fabric to opposite sides of the quilt and finish the top and bottom frames with lighter colors to add a nice contrasting piece. Alternate blocks when creating rows to change each frames orientation.
