I am looking to make a rage quilt. The fabric I am looking at only comes on a bolt by mail the fabric is 65% polyester and 35% cotton. Will this fray enough for a rag quilt? Also they do not have samples.

I have only made rag quilts with 100% cotton flannel or homespun. I'm not sure about the feel of a polyester fabric. You should check out fabric.com's selection.

People make rag quilts with fabric like minky, so I think your blend will be just fine!
