I know, I know, the quilted rug fad came and went. I am soooo last year.
I don’t have the famously famous Machine Made Patchworks that I believe landed this idea in blogland, but I constructed it by creating a casing (with overlapping flaps in the back) for a $3 clearanced kitchen rug from Target. The patchwork is quilted to a layer of fusible fleece.
I’m not much of a quilt designer, but when I’m trying to come up with squares & rectangles to cover an area, I usually get on Excel, make all the cells squares and design and arrange squares to fit my space. Btw, this is Micheal Miller’s Sweet Home, Garden Glory, and Mending Madness. It’s a heavy-weight cotton that’s perfect for a rug.
