I want to use remant patchwork fabric as an area rug. Any thoughts on what to mount the fabric onto to make it heavier and sturdier? Thanks for the how to! I'm excited for this project

You know, after I made that comment I looked more closely and saw it was turned 90 degrees. Duh, you the genius would know that!

If you look carefully, you can see that a strip of patches is sewn next to another strip, but the seams are off, which is good. Then they may turn the entire things 90 degrees and sew strips off in that direction. I watched a guy do this with about 10 books of remnants and it was amazing how fast the got at cutting the pieces. Sometimes two or three pieces are sewn together to make one square or rectangle. Kind of tricky.

but the fabric remnants on those chairs are not lined up in a row???

I think these are incrediable. Look at the way that the fabrics compliment the wood and the wood gives back to the chairs. What a great idea to use up small pieces in the same color pallet. Now I'm rethinking my chairs for the dinning room...EJ
