    I found the purple sashing fabric in my stash. I think it was from Lexie's quilt.

    Lori, the needle was straining getting through the strips that were perpendicular to the needle. The parallel strips were a breeze. I lengthened the stitch and that helped a bit. I broke 1 leather point needle and got the 'main motor error message' countless times.

    I have half of the binding stitched down. I'm going to try to get the rest of it done today.

    Very nice! Are you talking about this jean thing Jean-A-Ma-Jig (anniescatalog.com)? Couldn't you use the one that most new sewing machines come with? I have a couple of them somewhere.

    I found what you were talking about. Bias tape maker on steroids. lol

    Oh wow that's sure nice! You act like it's so simple but I have a feeling it is alot more complicated especially if you don't have one of those jig things. Which by the. way I have no clue what that is

    Well it was easy, until it came to binding it. My poor Husky boy strained to get through the binding once around. It's clipped, so I'll hand stitch the binding down when the light is better in here.

    Mimi, on Annie's Crafts there is a tutorial, but you have to join their crafting program. They do have the pattern for sale. It's called Strip Roll Rug by Caroline S Vagats. Don't click to sign up for any of their news letters. Mercy! I made that mistake. They will blow up your email every day. I keep unsubscribing, and have finally gotten them down to a couple of emails a day.

    I love how that came out. Was there a tutorial to go with the pattern?

    You sew each strip, then sew 10 strips together and cut them into 6 1/2" squares. It's 6 squares per row, 4 rows. It was so quick and easy! I have to bind it.

    I did change to a leather needle when sewing the squares together, because I didn't have any denim needles in the drawer.

    Wow! The colors are so pretty! I’ve made several of the oval ones, but never a square one, do you just butt the cut ends up to the squares next to it?

    Rhonda K The pattern called for a 50 yard roll of 2 1/2" roll. Then when you read down in the pattern, it called for the 2 1/4" and to fold over the edges then press in half. That Jig cut all of that extra work out.

    You are fast! From a whisper about the project straight to the finish line. It looks great!

    Did you use 2.5 inch batting or 2.25 batting?
