    OMG.... This was so much fun to make.

    Very first jelly roll rug. Loved making it. It was on my bucket list for this winter. I used 21 strips, the precut bosal batting. I bought the pattern at a quilt shop where they hold a class on the rug, so I got lots of pointers from the shop owner. No issues at all with curling, I used my walking foot and lots of steam ironing.

    Subtract the finished width from the finished length and that will be your center piece.

    I have to ask. Are they double sided or just one pretty side? That would be a great bathmat, but I like mine reversible.

    It has the pretty on both sides...they are the exact same, as the material is wrapped. Here is a video that may help you understand https://youtu.be/6nDtb4zP1iI

    Never thought of it as reversible. Good idea. You could even use a different color thread in the bobbin for added reversible effect. Got two more rolls of batting ordered I liked this so much, will try a different color thread for each side next time.

    Great job and pretty colors...I have heard those who like to make them and others not so much. I have been on the fence about trying one but I’m happy to hear you enjoyed it.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
