Quilt With Us

After seeing pics of the jelly roll rugs that have become the rage around the country, I decided to sign up for a class at one of my LQS to make one.  It was such a fun class although part of the project is very tedious.  Rather than use a jelly roll I decided to cut up my own scraps in to 2-1/2" strips.  Plus I had lots of left over cotton batting so I cut my own strips of that as well.  Of course I have enough 2-1/2" strips to make 10 more rugs if I so choose, but at least I made some dent in them.

Love it!  I need to look into this more!

Thanks handstitcher.  Also, be sure to use 100% cotton batting; otherwise your rug is apt to buckle.  In the pattern she says to use that tape that is for fusing batting pieces together, but I just zigzagged them. The store owner says she now doesn't even do that.  She just lays them end to end as she is making the rope.

I'm with Prairie Quilter in not seeing one of these rugs before. Nice job and thanks for the tip about the batting!

Thanks ladies.  Cindy, the pattern is Jelly-Roll Rug by RJ Designs.  I have a written pattern, but there are also downloadable versions.  As a side note, in the pattern she says to cut your batting 2-1/2" wide just like the jelly roll, but the store owner where I took the class said she experimented after making her 1st rug & decided that the batting works better cut at 2" instead.  It is less bulky that way.  I took the class on Fri & finished the rug on Sunday.

I hadn't seen these.  Rag rugs are wonderful!  I'll have to look into it.

Janet, I love it. This is one pattern that I definitely have to find. I've always been partial to rag rugs and this appears as it would be quicker than either crochet it tooth brush rugs.
