    Finished! Jelly Roll Rug

    Finished the jelly roll rug I was working on. Used stash fabric and cut into strips myself. I did purchase the rolls of batting. Pretty pleased with how it turned out and would make another one.

    I love it! It has a watercolor look to it from where I'm looking.
    I made one and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

    I like your rug and am so tempted to make some. I need a couple of rugs in my kitchen, in front of the sink and refrigerator especially. However, I am concerned about them slipping around and becoming a tripping danger. What do you think? What about washing it?

    Beautiful choice of colors! My batting strips arrived from Nancy's on Saturday - as soon as I get two UFO's bound, I'm going to make one too. Hope it's as pretty as yours.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Thank you for the kind responses. A bit of the "back story" on this fabric. I purchased this fabric in 2016 when Hancocks went out of business. They had fabric at 90% off and I bought all they had... 8 yards, thinking of a stack and whack quilt or a backing. The cost was $1.00 per yard. The 42 strips I cut took about 3 yards, so $3.00 invested in fabric. I could not decide on whether I wanted that bright fabric and how that bright fabric would look in a rug, so when I started prepping for cutting, noticed the "wrong" side was more muted and softer. I just used the wrong side for the outside of the strips.
    I am going to place it next to my bed on carpet so it won't slide around.
    I understand that to stop these rugs from sliding on hard floors, you can get the rubbery type kitchen shelf liner and simply stitch it to the underside. My next one will be for in front of my kitchen sink.....just got to find the right fabric again!

    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    I was unaware that you could purchase batting strips. I have so much batting here I think I would use my own and just cut the 2.5" strips.

    Did you use the pattern from Nancy's to make the rug? It looks like pretty easy to do without a pattern, but what I sometimes think looks easy isn't. Do you recommend that pattern?

    Finally, the pattern states that it is for a specific size. I would love to make one that is long and narrow for my upstairs hallway. Now that you have made one, do you think it would be easy to alter the pattern size to fit a space you would need it to fit?

    Thanks!

    I think the batting strips may be a new product. A lot of places are sold out. I'm waiting for my local shop to get their delivery this week. For me it will be worth it. I'm not the world's best cutter sometimes. I understand if you use batting you've cut you also need to use batting tape to connect the strips.
    Having said that, Murphy yours is much more economical. It's gorgeous!
