When I first received this kit, I was bemused. It quizzed me for a few days that I would be making a rug with cotton fabric. After reading the instructions several times and chatting to a quilter friend I decided to investigate cotton duck. Once I had sourced the fabrics the instructions were easy and clear to follow. Cutting instructions were simply layed out and were completed very quickly.

The construction instructions were clear and simply laid out with lots of diagrams.

The rug pieces are sewn onto the white non slip rug backing, no need for a backing fabric. I was going to sew in black thread but as the back is white I soon changed my mind. The instructions use a half inch seam allowance which meant I had to mark out all seams. The rug soon began to take shape.

This was a fun project to construct, it was something I would never have considered buying. I have toyed with the idea of quilt as you go kits and this experience has encouraged me to have a go.

Thank you for the opportunity to test this project.
