Quilt Strip Accent Rug



This quick and easy quilt project from Sulky of America creates an accent rug with strips of coordinating fabric. You will need 7 coordinating fabrics for this fun quilt project. This accent rug would make a great holiday gift.

All strips are cut across the fabric, selvage to selvage, assuming 42" of usable fabric. Cut off all selvages.

  • 1/2 yd. each of 7 coordinating fabrics
  • 1/2 yd. for binding
  • Batting - at least 21" x 54"
  • Sulky KK 2000 Temporary Spray Adhesive
  • Machine Needle - 14/90 Topstitch
  • Rug grip material for use under the rug to prevent slipping
  • General Sewing Supplies



  • Cut (6) 2-1/2" strips from each of the 7 fabrics
  • Cut these strips in half so each measures 2-1/2" x 21" long
  • Cut (21) 2-1/2" x 21" strips of batting


  1. Make a beginning sandwich by layering (spray KK 2000 between layers) one of your fabrics as follows:Quilt Strip Rug

I sure wish this would be written again including ALL the instructions. It is too hard to follow what is written here AND the "6hr Quilt by Kaye Wood". Is it anywhere in a complete form?


Oct 29, 2010

they did leave stuff out!! this is similar to a 6 hour quilt by Kaye Wood. YOU can buy her pattern on line... Make a Center sandwich. like a long pillow. Just like they said... that should be zig zagged all around..edges also. so the batting is in the middle.. this makes a center pillow. (this should be neat- but does not need to be "perfect" (this can also be serged) * note presser foot does not get 'caught in the batting" if the batting is on the bottom touching the feed dogs... *to add next "row" the easiest way is to pin the bottom fabric to the "center pillow" first- right sides to.. then Pin the 2nd fabric strip to the opposite side of the "pillow" so the zig zagged edge of the pillow is encased in the fabric. strips. *YOU will sew the two fabric strips on- plus batting- then flip them out making the next "pillow" Once you have the fabric pinned in position-- pin the batting to the back side and sew a straight seam... encasing the zz edge and the 2 strips and the batting... flip out the batting and bottom fabric and pull top fabric over- and line up and pin... zz that edge.. so it is flat and can accept row 3. you now have two strips attached... I trim and zz the ends now.. then you layer bottom fabric, batting on one side, and top fabric on the other side of the zz edge and sew that straight seam... flip both sides over, lining up batting and fabric edges -zz - then zz the ends... and trim - and you have row 3 done... then strip 4 and so forth... when desired size- bind (or serge the edges...) Hint- you must put the zz edge between the two fabric strips- one strip on each side--- so when you flip- the seam and Batting are encased... This really is easy- once you sew the first two strips together... have fun!! hope this helps

It's a waffleish weaved roll rubbery liner. It is in the throw rug area at Wal-Mart. You may have seen it used as shelf liner, and may find it the area of the store that has contact paper. It also works great in the bath tub to avoid slipping, and under chair cushions to keep them from sliding around when you are sitting. It keeps my grandkids booster seats from moving around on my dining room chairs, and as a bonus my wooden chairs don't get scratched from the booster seats.
