    Yet another jellyroll rug!

    I jumped on the bandwagon and used up scraps of batting and made strips from my stash. It was fun, but slow going!Name:  jelly roll rug.jpg

    Another beauty. I guess I am going to have to look at one of the YouTube videos and start me one. Does anyone have a preference or recommendation as to the best video to watch and learn the technique?

    Great job...it’s on my list of things to try. I love how colorful your jelly rug made up.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Great rug. Yes, I want to give it a try. I think one would look great in front of the bathroom vanity.

    Yes, I would do another one. I think to buy the batting pre-cut on a roll would be a tremendous time saver, but it makes the project very expensive! After all, its just a rug!

    I have lots of batting scraps, so I think over the winter I will just cut and piece the batting (with batting tape) a few at a time when I am between projects. I have lots of yardage and a few leftover precut jellyroll strips, and choosing and arranging the fabric strips is so fun (for me anyway). The actual sewing of the rug goes pretty quick!

    You need (or maybe 'should') buy the pattern. All the videos will say 'buy the pattern'! I liked the one by RJ designs (Erica Arndt) best, but the more you watch, the more tips you pick up!

    You did a really nice job on this rug. I am impressed that you blended your outer end so well that I had to look for it.
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.

    No. With every bobbin change I would take it to the ironing board and press (with a good soaking of Mary Ellen's Best Press). I also made sure I had a large flat surface to work on. (I used ironing boards to the back and side - even with the bed of my sewing machine.)
