This is a no-sew blanket. Very quick to make. Recommend using a rotatory cutter for cutting the strips.


  • Buy 2 yards each of to 2 coordinating fabrics.
  • Trim salvage edges.
  • Lay wrong sides together. May need to trim a bit to match sides.
  • Cut 6-inch squares through both fabrics from all four corners.
  • Cut 1 to 1-1/2 inch wide 6-inch strips through both fabrics along all sides.
  • Tie square knots with coordinating strips.

These are fun blankets to make.


  • Select 3 colors of fleece fabric.
  • Need 1-1/8 yards for each fabric selected.
  • Cut fabric into 9″ x 9″ squares.
  • Use a 1-inch seam allowance, sew seven squares across and eight down in pattern you determine.
  • Snip edges for rag-like appearance.
