    Floor Quilts

    I have been looking at some web sites about making floor quilts. My questions is, have any of you made a quilt to use on your floor?

    I have looked at that book several times! I think there is a member here on QB that makes Floor Quilts exclusively but alas, I don't remember who it is! I must admit when I went to the quilt expressions link, I gasped when I read that they were using quilts for the customers to walk on! I definately would have a hard time doing that with any of the quilts that I made! But I think if I made one specifically to be a floor quilt, I would be okay with it.

    I made a small one to use as a bath mat. It has worked out well but I do rotate my bath mats.

    I think they look nice, but I also think that I would walk around them and not on them. Would also worry about someone sliding on it and falling. Does it have a backing like a rug?

    Maybe a way to ease into this would be bath mats as Freckles48 has done. What a neat idea!

    Wow, floor quilts, I can totally get behind that idea. I would put a non slip rug mat underneath so my kids do not go sliding, but think of the possibilities. One more quilt to go on my "to do" list.

    I, on the other hand, will need some time to come to grips with acceptance of quilts on the floor!
    I'm just getting into "modern" quilts, for Pete's sake; I'm an 'old girl' and find change harder and harder to deal with, LOL!!
    Now "Floor Cloths" that are painted as quilts I could really get into, or painted concrete floors.

    'Quilts on the Floor' is quite an interesting book. The author uses some different techniques though. She paints quilt patterns on canvas which would definitely be durable on the floor. Also uses a 'Decoupage' technique with fabric strips; 'glues' them into a pattern which would also be very durable. What a way to use up some of your stash!

    I've made an Aunt Phillys toothbrush rug - - - nearly 30 years ago and I still use it. Throw in the wash when needed. Love it and would much rather do that for a rug then glue strips of fabric onto canvas. Just my opinion. . .

    If you make a quilt rug, please be sure to share pics!
