Another Finish

Does this count?  I think it does.  It's not a quilt but it uses lots of fabric; I estimate busting 10 yards of fabric on this one.  I love it.  I actually made it for my laundry room but it took a better picture placing it outside the door.  It might be hard to tell but there are some really bright fabrics in it that make it sparkle.  My laundry room has pale blue walls and white cabinets, white tile flooring and white trim so I put some white and blue in the rug too.  It looks so happy in there!  I see it all the time because the laundry room door is across from the garage door and I keep the laundry room door open at least a little bit all the time.  I made it over the course of several months so I really don't know how long it took to make.  It's 30 inches in diameter.  The strips are cut 1" wide and crocheted with a size P hook.  I have another one in progress in dark colors, reds and browns yet still scrappy but is an oval rug that I'll use in a hallway when it's large enough.

  1. I've had this photo pulled up on my computer screen for half an hour. I think I need to know how you did this. I crocheted before I quilted, and I have my P hook right here. You said you cut the strips 1". Do you sew them together end to end before you crochet? I'm trying to organize my fabric and have a pile I am not sure I want to keep. I could make a rag rug. And, yes this definitely does count. I love it!!!!

  2. Very nice rug! I've done these and the "toothbrush" rug, and we love them on the floor.
