Fold the Strips for a More Polished Finish!

Braid folded strips of fabric together for this beautifully polished take on a rag rug. It’s sure to add warmth and charm wherever you decide to display it. The rug is simple to make and a fun project to work on in between larger quilt projects. 

Start with 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips from a coordinated pack, use up leftovers for a more scrappy look, or cut strips from your stash. Any color theme will be beautiful so have fun choosing fabric for this project.

Cozy at Home Rug Pattern

One pack of 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips will produce a rug that is 25″ in diameter. Create a 34″ rug with two packs of jelly roll strips. You can go larger by using more strips or smaller for placemats or a table topper centerpiece.

Instructions for the “Cozy at Home Rug”, designed by Allison Jensen of Woodberry Way, are included in Welcome to Woodberry Way: An Inviting Collection of Delightful Quilt. We’d love to make many of the beautiful quilts included in the collection.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
