Floor Quilts

You don't sew them, you glue patches of fabric onto canvas and then coat with a layer or two of watered down glue followed by polycrylic and bam! Floor quilt! This could have turned out nicer if I had designed and actually measured but I was so excited by the concept I just jumped in and started patching and gluing. I'm still rather pleased with it. The final step is to give it a coat of wax (minwax) to keep it somewhat supple. It will probably go in the dining room where the durable, ugly grey thing is now.

There is a very good book about the process. Just google floor quilts or look on amazon.
