Quilt On A Rug?

 - Yes, you're reading correctly....and a first class rug it is.  Dianne Springer of Scrap-O-Lator Quilts & More fame taught a class today on how to make her quilt on a rug.  You can make one too because in her book, she cleverly included some delightful no-sewing projects.....and they all revolve around what else but SCRAPS.  Quilt On A Rug instructions start on page 45.




 
Here's my first quilt on a rug after construction stage one.  It's definitely in the raw stage now, but after stage one dries, I'll move on to stage two, then stage three and it's done.  I like to think this is a great use of batik scraps!  And I'll show you the finished rug when finished!





And Hannah's after construction stage one - using Kaffe Fasset fabric scraps she found in her shop in Choudrant, Louisiana. (Hannah also has an online shop).

 Both of our rugs will finish out at 24" x 36". 




 
And Dianne is sitting on top of the world - I mean - her 8' x 10' she's just starting....in black and white....with a tasty border of green - probably lime!  Yes, that's a big rug, but she places her big ones on the floor of her quilt show booths and displays them in classes she teaches.  See her busy schedule on her Threads From My Head.....a blog.   You'll be glad you did 'cause Dianne vends at most major quilt shows around the country.
