Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Floorquilting is a new fabric decoupage technique for making dazzling patchwork floor quilts by piecing fabric onto artist's canvas, sealing it, and applying protective coatings and nonskid backings to make an extremely durable floor covering. Living in a household with rug-chewing dogs, Silver came up with the idea of durable floor quilts as a substitute for conventional throw rugs. Twelve projects with step-by-step instructions are supplemented with a gallery of examples of other uses for the technique, including making place mats, coasters, luggage tags, and bookmarks. Quilters will find this a good way to use up fabric scraps while creating wearable art for their homes. An excellent choice for public library craft and quilting collections.
