Scraptastic Tuesday -- Are you Ready to Tumble?

I'm working on my Bonnie Hunter 2015 Leader/Ender Tumbler challenge.  You can read more about it here.  I am working with denim scraps.  I didn't want another super heavy quilt, so I decided to make kitchen rugs.  Denim is perfect for kitchen rugs.  I haven't decided what fabric to use as a backing yet.  I'm wondering if there is something that is non-slippery that I can wash...  I'll have to use a coupon at JoAnn's next week.

I'm linking up with Leanne at She Can Quilt for the August Scraptastic Link up (and also Nicky - Mrs. Sew and Sow.)  I try to manage scraps by sorting fabrics by color (mostly) and non-cotton fabrics by type.  I had enough denim for my rug project.

Here's my first rug.  There WILL be more!!!  I need five for my kitchen.  I think I will make them all different, but being all denim they will have some cohesion.

  3. Nice to have a bit of colour on the floor but I think my dog would run of with a rug! Good luck in getting all five done and finding a non-slip backing! And thank you for linking up to #scraptastictuesday

  6. Very cute with the pops of color!! A tumbler quilt is on my bucket list but I just washed my kitchen rug and it went to shreds so I might have to borrow your idea. But I have a smaller kitchen so I only need to make one and it will cover the stove, sink, and dishwasher area. Thanks for the inspiration! And let me know what you find to use for a nonslip washable backing. Karen kthurn@bektel.com
