I believe I read that statement concerning the making of a dear jane quilt
, but I will also adapt that statement to making rag rugs. Originally, I was going to make the rug with vertical stripes, but then, through a series of not so exciting events, I settled for this. Completion. I think I like it.
Being the obsessive neat freak that I am, it took me a long time to learn to appreciate imperfections in all types of things: people, craft, you name it. I think, though, that your rug is beautiful, and the imperfect quality gives it quite a bit of character. The colors are great together, and I like the varied thickness of the stripes.
It's a perfect rug, very nice job!
And thank you for the good tut. Just found it and will start collecting T-shirts!
you are so creative!
I love the colours. Looks terrific on your floor :)
Your home must be lovely, full of all kinds of handmade things. Your rug turned out real nice. Your hand must hurt some!
How striking! I love the colours you choose to combine.
That is one of my favorite phrases, I recite if often :) Your rug looks great!!
The rug looks great. I agree finished is much better than perfect. After you are using it you never notice the imperfections anymore.
It looks great, Amandajean. I love the colors.
I like it!! Love the colors. I'm gonna have to learn how to crochet so I can make one!
love it. those colors are perfect.
Love these colors. Cant wait for to try this tutorial.
That looks nice. I am thinking I might have to make some of these after we move.
You make the nicest things.
You have no idea how awesome I think you are right now. My step mom made one of these YEARS ago, and I have been wanting to make one recently. I was thinking about asking her how to make it, but here is my queue! Thanks for sharing the pattern too, that's great!
I think it's great. Made of t-shirts, right? Such good reuse! You're an earth day girl!!!!
Love it!! Thanks to you I have a huge pile of t-shirts sitting in my laundry waiting to become a rug. Someday!
lovely that you have the time to do this. I can't keep up with your crafting. It is inspiring.
I just posted my blog with my 2nd and 3rd quilts that you inspired to do.
http://quiltingforfunandmorefun.blogspot.com hope you come to visit and see what you got me started to do.
Love the rag rug. Also love the the heading..Finished is better than perfect. I needed that the other night with the mess I made on a little quilt. Thanks!
yay! Today is my lucky day! I stumbled upon your blog from the "Apronista" who's blog I found by googling "ruffled apron pattern". And this is by FAR my favorite quilting site! Love your stuff! Cute cute cute fabrics. I have to try your rasberry lemonade quilt with my cute scraps! K, now I've gotta go check out your past quilts!
It looks good, I like it :-)
It can be difficult to let go of the image of how you wanted it to look...I know....I have to that quite often ;-)
But finished IS better that perfect sometimes!
it looks fab. and I def think that there are times for perfect and there are times for done.
Nice rug! I need some new ones in my kitchen and noticed you had a tutorial. I checked it out and since I do thread crochet....I know I can handle it. Thanks for sharing the info. Now, if I could just find the time!
I'm certainly experiencing the feeling of that statement as I work on my dear jane quilt.
Nice rug. Love the colors.
I totally like it. Funky, folksy, perfect.
Love your choice of colors! Your rug has tons of character.
Thanks for sharing so much with all of us.
I like the colors of your rug...maybe I should learn to make them too.
