    Oh how pretty is that, and what a beautiful little sitting area in your basement!

    If you need a bed to put it on I have a bed. It is so very colorful.

    It looks beautiful. Your lines come together great! I never would have thought about using it as an accent rug- that's a novel idea. It really pulls the seating area together. What do you use to prevent the quilt from sliding around the floor?

    It looks great on your floor but I would not allow anyone to walk on it.

    What a wonderful rug! I can't believe that's your basement. Looks nicer than my living room.

    Very pretty and I hope there's a sign up that says "no shoes allowed"! Would love to see more of the other wallhangings you have up. I see at least 4...

    AKKKK! I found myself screaming "Don't walk on it!" remember the clear plastic covers on the chairs/sofa that people would put on and never take off for centuries in order to protect the fabric? makes me want to lay it down on this beautiful scrappy. Seriously, it is so pretty and such a wonderful job you've done. I like the quilting you chose to do on it as well.Oh and thanks for the nightmare I will have tonight about me running around trying to keep people from walking on my quilts! LOL!

    I know we don't like the idea of walking on quilts, but, on the other hand...
    Look what great personality, color and warmth it adds to the room and tile floor!
    It is scrappy, little $$ involved, and may fit the budget better than buying a rug.
    It can be thrown into the washing machine. I can't do that with my large area rugs.
    I wouldn't do this with a quilt I'd invested too much money or too many hours on, but a scrappy in an area that's not a main traffic area in my home...I think I'd consider it!

    What a clever idea. I like it! It adds great color and dimension to your room. Plus shows your gift of not just quilting but decorating. Great job. Thanks for sharing!

    I hope you have scotch guarded it like crazy and don't allow anyone to have shoes on when they walk on it. I don't think after doing all that piecing I could put it on the floor! It is a very nice room though.

    I love how it looks on your floor. What great decorating! I never would have thought to do that but it is a fantastic way to use up your scraps and it fits perfect in your room. Just love it.

    That looks really beautiful with your choice of colors. I really don't think I could walk on it though.

    Love it!!! Beautiful setting area.
    I have thought about doing that. Did you put anything on the back to keep it from slipping around?
