Simple quilt and floor mats

Here is the picture of the quilt I described on the 21st.  (I saw this variation of Sunset Ridge Quilt (Moda Bake Shop) Crafty Mummy  blog.  The original quilt is by Chrissy Lux  Sunset Ridge Quilt ).
It is small and went together very quickly.  

Last Memorial Day, my neighbor came over because her plans had been cancelled.  I suggested we try to make floor mats.  I had seen some at Happiness is Quilting in McKinney, TX but they were sold out of the pattern.  I did buy some of the rubber backing, and modpodge there.  I searched the internet and found this post How to make a mod podge floor cloth  

We used my stash as she doesn't sew.  Her's is the red with border stripe, and mine is using a jelly roll I had.  I used more of the jelly roll in the quilt at the top of the page.  She had problems with the mod podge so she glued her fabric down first.  Now that I have pictures I see I have an edge flipped up on mine and she has some bubbles....

We used linoleum for backing.  Both of us vacationed in June so no further work on them.  They need a polyurethane coat on top, and the rubberized stuff on back.  It was an easy project and one morning soon, I'll get up and outside before it's too hot and work on finishing them.


  1. Floor mats is a great idea - I have never thought about that. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

  2. My wife does quilting and crafts, and I've always taken it for granted. Never knowing what really went into it, your post has opened my eyes. I like the floor cloths you made, and they are even more amazing because they only took a day. I will stop taking my wife's work for granted, so thank you for your post.
