    Yes, they've been advertising via the QB pop-ups that they do ship.
    As per my previous post, I did not find the Saf-T-Bak on their website.
    Plus I know there are several products I've noted that they cannot or do not ship.
    I would suspect this might be one.

    It's not listed as Saf-T-Bak on their website. Here's the link to the page. There shouldn't be a problem shipping it to Canada. I've shipped stuff classed as HazMat to Canada numerous times. They just have to fill out the proper paperwork.

    JoAnn's has it online. They don't carry it in the stores. They call it Fiber-Lok Rug Backing. Here's the link.

    Thanks ... I'll do some checking around for the 2nd product too.
    If no luck, then I might order from Joann's and see if I can come up with some other things that I can't get here, to make it worthwhile for the surcharge plus shipping. Although, I always hesitate as to what the surprise charges will be when it hits customs at the border.

I am going to a Stonehenge trunk show in Phoenix AZ this coming Saturday and hope they have some of the panels there. Anyone from AZ going to that trunk show?
    I found this panel by Northcott's Stonehenge fabrics:

    I wonder if this would work??

    Yes, that would be beautiful. You would need 3 of the panels plus a backing.

    I love this idea, love the chennile Stonehenge rug. I am confused about the fear of walking on it, I can see one of these in my bath to match the quilt on my bed, just tie it all together. Plus having it easy to clean, my bare feet will love it. Most of my rugs are cloth or some sort, and there have always been braided rugs.

    Yes, one on top of the other. Align them and pin together before stitching. That is what gives the depth when you chenille it.

    Oh my, I don't know if I could get used to the idea of quilts as rugs. Now someone who uses the quilt I made them to curl up on the floor with, I'm totally comfortable with that. When I give away I quilt, I assure them that it is meant to be used, not enshrined. I just feel like I put too much time and effort and money into my quilts for them to be rugs. I supposed it would be much more durable if the quilting was very tight.

    Okay, this verbalizes my sentiments exactly. Gosh, can get a large colorful rug at Lowes, even, for less than I can make a quilt!!

    I read the book but was put off by all the extras which were put on the quilt to protect after finishing. If someone here makes them with out all the extr fuss may be interested.
    Finished is better than a UFO
