Rugamarole Rigamarole.





rigmarole [ˈrɪgməˌrəʊl], rigamarole
n
1. any long complicated procedure
2. a set of incoherent or pointless statements; garbled nonsense
[from earlier ragman roll a list, probably a roll used in a medieval game, wherein various characters were described in verse, beginning with Ragemon le bon Ragman the good]

This "rug" is anything but a complicated procedure or pointless! And they say "garbled nonsense" like it's a bad thing!
I used the long ends of quilts and big chunky scraps from the Sis Boom Poodle and So St. Croix collections sewn together wherever they fit, and contained the kaleidoscope of colors with vintage wool fringe.
Paint the back with several coats of a non-skid backing, such as Saf-T-Bak, to transform this afghan style quilt into a rug.
Or not. It would look super groovy on a rumpus room sofa.
Don't forget to post to be eligible for all of that fine Sis Boom booty!
