Ellenís first book, Floorquilts, Fabric Decoupaged
Floorcloths Ė No-Sew Fun, combines her artistic sensibilities and
her talent for problem solving.
In this case, the
problem that needed solving came on four legs, barked and considered
all the corners of all Ellenís area rugs as his designated chew
Out of necessity came Floorquilts, the solution:
durable, colorful fabric decoupaged floorcloths. The book is
published by C&T Publishing, available online and at many
contains clear and detailed instructions for projects that
combine the look of handmade quilts with a method for improving
raw fabric with added strength and the cutability of paper.
Follow the projects
in Ellenís book or use her technique to create your own no-sew
Make carefree floor coverings that are unfazed by muddy feet,
teething puppies, rolling desk chairs, bar stools or high chairs.
Since safety is an
important consideration in the flooring department, making
floorquilts includes applying a non-skid medium to the face as well
as a good-grip coating to the underside.
