    Can rag quilts be done with regular quilting cotton? I have tons of scraps, but have only ever seen rag quilts done with flannel and denim.

      Yes. Using regular quilting cotton fabrics the same way. The ragged edges won’t be as “fluffy”, but the quilt will still be fun. I’ve made several. If you want a bit more fluff, add an extra layer (3 or 4 pieces of the fabric + batting.
      I have made baby quilts with a piece of flannel between the fabric instead of batting. In other words, 3 layers of fabric cut exactly the same size. This makes a lighter weight quilt.
      There is no right or wrong with your own quilts. You are the only judge.
