Knitting with Fabric – Very Fun!

My friend brought over a quilt book (Sunday Morning Quilts) that showed this idea.  The author had made their fabric knitting project into a little rug and it looked really cool.  I added a flannel back to each and I use them as both covers for the back of chairs as well as a lap warmer.  They are surprisingly heavy though!  I like the amazing colors and textures.  I added yarn into the mix as well; sometimes with the fabric strips and sometimes sewn on top afterwards.

  1. I just found your blog and I’m having the best time playing at your house!!! 😀 Love your quilts and the rugs are awesome! I have that book, and it makes me want to pull some fabrics and knit them rather than sew them. :d I also HAVE to get the Simply Retro book now too. *sigh* ;d Love the orange/purple AND the red—what size are those blocks, anyway? They look like they are a good size.

    • Hi Angie – thank you 🙂 I highly recommend the Simply Retro book! I love that the blocks are nice and easy but look quite striking. The Retro block is a 12″ block.
      I was checking out your website and I love the big star quilt you made. I’ve been thinking about trying one of those too. I also loved your dog pillow. That was super cute. I am a fellow dog lover too 🙂
      Have a great day! Linda
