Appalachian Rag Rug Updated (Rag Rugs by Erin Blog/Newsletter)

Posted by Erin Halvorsen on

 

I updated the Appalachian Heirloom Rag Rug video.  I put both parts of the video together as well as showed how to add a single crochet to the outside edge to help this very dense stitched rug lay nice and flat. Sally Behrens made this fabulous suggestion and it sure did work nice.  I appreciate all the ideas from all my viewers.

My last call out I asked if my viewers like 1 long video or several smaller videos.  At first the several smaller videos concept was winning about 2 to1 but by the time the comments stopped it was close to even.  I am working on a few ideas.  Thanks again to everyone that took the time to share their opinions.

Here is the link to the video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DuqYJF_lY4  

 

Please email me at ragrugsbyerin@gmail.com for ideas or suggestions you would like clarification or information about.  Perhaps you will see it in another Rag Rugs by Erin Blog.

  • I am new to your web site and very intrigued by your talent and complete instructions, making it enjoyable to learning the art of rug rag quilting. I wish I lived closer to your classes so I could be in the front row.. Looking forward to making my first Denim Rag Rug. Janet Knipe

  • I am glad you liked the idea of putting that finishing touch with the last row going in reverse by turning the rug over.. I learned that by accident because after I had finished my rug, I decided to add one more row and had it turned over, didn’t realize my mistake until I had done about 12 stitches. BUT I liked it so just kept going. Now I do all rugs that way. We learn by our mistakes. Thank you for the tutorials.

  • I am glad you had success with the last row going in reverse to help the rug to lay flat. I do it on all my rugs. I like that finished look. I didn’t realize that Sally was using that technique. Thank you. Could you do a tutorial on making placemats and a center mat for a kitchen table. How many sheets would it take for four…?? Dolores Rawson
