I found this cool tutorial to crochet a rug from scraps of fabric
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
ok, get your crochet hook out and lets start crocheting!
My grandmother crocheted rugs. She has been gone since 1971 and I still have 4 or 5 of hers. My mother gave me her hook which my grandfather hand carved for her. She is the one who started me on quilting. She generally had one in a frame when we would visit. She started me on a 9 patch. When I finished, she and my aunt set it together and quilted it. My grandmother hand carded the cotton to go in it.
Memories like that are priceless!
I love this idea! I'm alittle confused tho. Did they turn all the salvage edges in and sew? Maybe I just need to reread it when I have both eyes open? lol
Thanks Craftbear. I love it. I use all kinds of long scraps, not just selvages. A friend gave me one last year for in front of my washer. It was so pretty I got "hooked" so to speak. I am so ready to get to crocheting and quilting again. I love take crocheting in the car with me when DH drives. You can get a lot done in few miles. I hate idle hands. Gotta keep him busy.
