Background fabric: two 4.1/2" squares, four 2.3/4" squares and four 2.1/2" squares
Leaf fabric: four 2.3/4" squares, six 2.1/2" squares, six 2.1/2" squares, two 6.1/2" by 2.1/2" rectangles and two 4.1/2" by 2.1/2" rectangles. You can get all the 2.1/2" pieces from one strip cut across the width.
Two strips of sashing 12.1/2" by 2", and two strips 15.1/2" by 2"
Backing fabric 15.1/2" square, wadding 14.1/2" square.
The leaf fabric for three rag quilt blocks can be cut from a fat quarter so it's a great chance to use some of those fat quarters you have lying around to provide some variety in your quilt.
It's easiest to make the half square triangles first.
This is one idea for a rag quilt, but obviously you could make a rag quilt from any quilt block pattern. Just sew the blocks together with wrong sides together and snip the edges of the seam.
