Thanks for the great response on the Granny’s Style Rag Rug I posted few days ago. Due to the request to come up with a tutorial, I woke up at 4am this morning for you, my dear readers, took step-by-step photos to show you how to fold and sew those tiny triangles :mrgreen: Since I have limited fabric scraps to make a big piece of rag rug, I made a small one instead – a coaster. It’s a rushed job and not like my previous tutorials which would take up a few days to complete. I hope you will think that the quality is good…..

It is now late in the afternoon while I write this post, and I need some super-duper-booster-coffee to keep my eyes 8-O . Though I am tired and left my craft room in a mess because I need to rush out to work this morning, but, I am happy and contented with what I have done as long as it is related to creative handicraft and handmade, and most importantly I have you to read my creations :) So, throw more requests if you need one, I will put them in the “Things-To-Do List” and will plan for it :)

  23. Really great! You are so clever!

  24. I was running through the net last night/early this morning which ever 2am sits at trying to find this pattern: http://www.straw.com/equilters/library/projectshare/coasterspatt.html when I came across yours. I had to save it to my favorites so I can make these for next Christmas I give away coasters to friends doesn’t cost much and they seem to enjoy it. My friend at work loved the ones this year she wanted the pattern (which sent me on the voyage into the net to find the other pattern. So I ended up sending her this one also. It’s great having another quilting buddy even if you end up giving the same thing to each other they are gonna be different! Thanks for your pattern. I’m sure we both will enjoy making them as gifts to our friends and family’s.

  25. Going to make these and attach them to pillows!

  28. i just stumbled upon your site. love love love the tutorial. cant wait to make one for myself. sending your website to all my crafting friends. great tutorial. rag rug granny style.

  29. How about using a hair straightener for these tiny pieces? You could probably save your ironing board from a few burns using this method!

  30. the triangles are called prairie points when quilting!

  31. To be exact: prairie points are not folded like that – but a lovely, interesting pattern anyhow!

  32. I’m so glad that you made this tutorial. I really liked the round version. I hope to make a rug someday.
    Thank you.
