5.0 out of 5 stars Combine the Fun of Scrapbooking with the Durability of Quilting 23 Dec 2007
By Penny D. Haren - Published on Amazon.com
Ellen has figured out a way to "treat" fabric so that it has the best properties of paper AND fabric. In effect, she has combined the instant gratification of scrapbooking with the permanence and durability of fabric! We now have the best of both worlds! After the fabric is treated, it can be cut with rotary cutters, circle cutters, paper punches - pretty much anything you use for paper - into any shape you want! Then, you "glue" it to the canvas foundation!

The designs - and sizes - are limitless. And, the pictures in the book will get your creative juices flowing! Some of the examples have a very contemporary feel - squares within squares, rectangles within rectangles - in the hottest colors such as turquoise and brown. Others are more traditional and have the feel of quilts.

And, don't be intimidated by the supply list! Ellen includes all the manufacturers and product names. What you can't buy at your local quilt shop, is available at the hardware store! You may even be able to get your hubby involved!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy, spectacular, and practical! 31 Oct 2007
By Kristin O'callaghan - Published on Amazon.com
I took Ellen's first class on floorquilts and was amazed by the creative possibilities offered by floorquilts. I like to sew and quilt, but this technique--which is completely original--is available to anyone. You can literally make ANYthing you can envision for a rug. And the best part is that the rug is totally practical. I made one with a white background and, because it's sealed, it stayed completely white. It's perfect for high traffic areas. I can't recommend this book enough. The only problem is that it may breed a new obsession!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabric fun! 8 Nov 2007
By thursdancer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a perfectly detailed book on how to create fun floor quilts. It explains step by step the process of creating floor quilts. Before I even finished my first one I was already planning my second and third one. This requires no previous quilting know how. Once you start to create these fun floor mats and other projects it becomes addicting.

This book is a crafters must! Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars WOW!! 6 Nov 2007
By creative quilter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love the concept and it looks as if it will be great fun. The only disappoinment is the difficulty the correct weight canvas. And I live in a large city so it shouldn't be that difficult. To obtain the canvas on line will be expensive.

I have been in communication with the author to see if I could do a few things differently and to ask why she recommends certain processes. She was super quick to respond and VERY helpful. She sounds delightful and I wish she were holding a class in my area. The book is full of good ideas and I am looking forward to having some fun with it once the holidays are over. I definitely recommend it if you enjoy crafting and/or quilting, particularly that which is unique and useful at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars just fantastic idea 19 Jan 2009
By B. Fleming - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I should wait to write this review til I try this but the book itself is one of the best craft books I own (and my libary of craft books is in the several hundreds of books). VERY clear instructions. A wonderful number and variety of patterns which will inspire you to think of others and not just copy the ones in the book. I cannot wait to try this.
