Rag Rugs

Wow, I haven't posted in over a month. I've been overwhelmed by scraps so I was looking for a way to use them. I found an idea on the Sew Mama Sew Forum from Quilting is My Passion. She calls them crumb chaos blocks. They are so much fun. I made a stack of them and made three rugs from them. I have only two pictured here, front and back. The one with the white backing is made from a rug my grandmother made. The front was worn and had holes, but the back wasn't too bad. There is one more, but I think I'll cut that one up and patch up the back instead of using the two layers like I did the last one. It was a bit too thick sewing through all four layers.

I still have tons more scraps and will be searching for other things to make with them. Does anyone have any ideas? I'd love to hear them.
