Day 13 of 30 Days of Giveaways - Floorquilts, Roc-lon Multi Purpose Cloth and Mod Podge

IHAN's 30 Days of Giveaways
Anniversary Celebration
Day 13 Giveaway
and
and

When Ellen Highsmith Silver wrote to me saying she wanted to join in the IHAN Anniversary Celebration I was soooo excited.  I love Ellen's book, Floorquilts.  I first learned about her book while I was in Pittsburgh for Quilt Market.  I was drawn into a booth by Ellen's book Floorquilts.  As I walked into the booth  a very nice gentleman greeted me and asked me if I had ever heard of Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth. I had no clue what it was much less what someone would do with it. When I left I was thrilled to learn all the different things that can be made with Multi-Purpose Cloth

They had my attention.  I thought the Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth was neat in that it didn't frey and it could be used for so many things.  I learned that the fabric is sealed using Mod Podge (all in one glue, sealer and finish). 
 
When I learned that all three companies were going to help IHAN Celebrate....well.....I just can't help but post them together.  The giveaways are separate but I wanted to share with everyone how I learned about these really cool things.
 
These are students that Ellen Highsmith Silver taught to make Floorquilts.  Aren't they beautiful?  Wouldn't it be great to have one of these on the floor or even wall if you prefer?

More about Ellen's book Floorquilts :

 
· Through clear instructions and projects, Ellen guides readers through the process of transforming your favorite stash fabrics into durable floor coverings.
· 12 projects with step-by-step instructions, appliqué patterns and dozens of helpful tips throughout.
· More than floor coverings! Ellen also applies her technique to placemats, coasters, luggage tags, trivets, bookmarks, and more.
· A new place to show off your favorite quilt designs when your house is already filled with quilts!
· Lots of how-to photographs and inspiring examples assure success for beginners and seasoned crafters alike.
 Now, on to Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth made by Rockland Industries

 Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth is ideal for painting, sewing, machine embroidery, decoupage, and more. Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth is reversible, does not fray or curl, is durable, lays flat, holds its shape, does not require primer or gesso, accepts fabric glue/tape, can be sewn or hold punched, and can be cut using household scissors. 
Here are some examples from IHAN's Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth Challenge held last year.

I made this little booty
 Aren't these some great examples of what can be made using Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth?  For more information and ideas click here.  I've had several customers purchase Multi-Purpose Cloth to make banners for their churches.  Your imagination is the limit with this cloth.  You can use it as a window shade because it eliminates light, insulates against heat and cold, provides privacy and acts as a noise barrier. 
 Mod Podge  is an all in one glue, sealer and finish.  The button above is from  Amy's Mod Podge Rocks blog  It is true, Mod Podge does indeed Rock and so does Amy!!!  Plaid has made Mod Podge since the 60's. It comes in a variety of formulas including: Classic Mod Podge, Hard Coat Mod Podge, Satin Finish Mod Podge, Brush Stroke Mod Podge, Fabric Mod Podge, Paper Mod Podge, Outdoor Mod Podge, Sparkle Mod Podge, Puzzle Saver Mod Podge, Glow-in-the-Dark Mod Podge, Mod Podge Shimmer and Mod Podge Glitter.  Mod Podge is an all in one glue, finish and sealer.  It has been used in decoupage since the 60's.

Ellen's Floorquilts is a perfect example of what can be made using Mod Podge :)  For daily ideas using Mod Podge you want to follow Amy's Mod Podge Rocks Blog and look at Plaid's newsletter here.

As I said when I started this post, these giveaways are separate.

Ellen Highsmith Silver will send one lucky IHAN blog reader a copy of her book, Floorquilts and a kit of all essential supplies minus fabric, of course with which ANYONE can make any of the projects in the book.

The second drawing is for 3 yards of Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth (2 yards will be in the Grand Prize Drawing).  The sky is the limit for what you can make with 3 yards :)

And the third drawing is for a Starter Pack of Mod Podge.  It will be sent to the the address of the winners choice by Amy from Mod Podge Rocks!!!

To enter today's drawing, you need to leave a comment telling us why you would like to win and what you plan on making with  FloorquiltsRoc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth and Mod Podge Starter Kit.  Please leave a seperate comment for each of the giveaways that you would like to be entered into. If you just comment on one of the items, that will be the only drawing your comment will be entered into.  

Thank you soooo very much Ellen Highsmith Silver, Rockland Industries, Plaid and Amy from Mod Podge Rocks.  What wonderful people to want to celebrate with IHAN and offer you all these incredible prizes :)

Smiles,
Kelly

Okay...hope I don't sound greedy, but I'm going to do 3 posts and MAYBE I'll be lucky enough to win all 3 items.....yeah...RIGHT!!! First...I'd need the book to know how to make a floorquilt as I have no idea about that yet.

Pat said...

Okie dokie...comment #2.....I'd love the fabric as I'd want to make a small floor mat OR maybe a shade for my sewing room window. It would be cool to have a shade made for the window that could be looking like a quilt on that fabric!

Pat said...

And...last, but not least....I would NEED the ModPodge to use on that fabric I hope to win in order to make use of what I would learn in that book I also hope to win!!! LOL (I guess I'm a dreamer, huh??)

Starr said...

Count me in on the Floorquilts book!! Looks interesting!

Starr said...

Oh Yes! Count me in on Mod Podge... Gosh I had forgotten all the things you can use this on.

Starr said...

And for number 3 entry... Roc-lon sounds interesting to try.. Yep enter me on this too.... Big thanks !:)

pamdux said...

I would like to make a floor quilt to put in front of my sink. pamspinks.blogspot.com

pamdux said...

I would like to win the Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth to keep the summer sun out of our apartment and still have something beside trash cans to look at.

sharon said...

I would like to enter the Floor quilts book give away. I love making rugs and anything mat like! The book looks interesting, thanks for the chance in the give away.
Sharonj.

pamdux said...

I would use the Mod Podge starter set to finish place mats for my DD's kitchen.

lisa said...

I am entering first for the floor quilts. I rent a basement house apartment and the carpet here is ugly, poorly laid and with two littleones, stained. I'd love to make some large floor quilts and cover up areas AFTER having pros come in and clean the carpets!

lisa said...

I am also entering for the mulitpurpose cloth. the girls room is the only room in the house that gets good sunlight. let me tell you, thats just GREAT for naps and bedtime!! (sense the sarcasm?)

lisa said...

lastly entering for mod podge! even if I dont win the book, I will put it on my must have list, so I could use it to make those floor quilts!

Jen of ReannaLily Designs said...

That Floor Quilts book looks very cool. I'm hoping I win!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

I would love to get my hands on Floorquilts! I would definitely use up some of my fabric to make run and unique floor coverings for my home, and probably for gifts too!

Another great giveaway!

Thanks,
MGM

Mary Grace McNamara said...

The Roc-lon cloth would be awesome to win too. 3 yards would make just about anything possible, but I would probably use it to make something fun for my children.

Thanks again!

MGM

Mary Grace McNamara said...

And of course you can never have enough Mod Podge! I used the kind with glitter in it recently to seal my pinewood derby car which I raced in my son's first scouting event. They had a separate race for the grown-ups! It was fun and I came in 4th. But my car was the coolest one there...it sparkled!

MGM

onlymehere said...

I certainly learn alot about different things by your blog and these give-aways! These sound fabulous and I'd love to learn how to make these floor quilts!

Homemade Quilts by Granny said...

WoW ModPodge! That would be a good win in my book.Trish

Homemade Quilts by Granny said...

I would use the foorquilts for rugs.Trish

Homemade Quilts by Granny said...

I would use the Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth for wall hangings.Trish

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I would love to win the Floorquilts book to make a floor quilt for my four season porch. It has a maple floor and needs some great color. The floor quilt would be perfect.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I would love to win the Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth to make a window covering for my sewing room.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

That Mod Podge Starter Kit would be so fun. If I had it right now I would start with fabric covered eggs for Easter!!

cntryways said...

The floor quilts look really interesting. I would love to try one to two. Have a nice spot in the kitchen that needs something.

Rosemary
cntryways@att.net

cntryways said...

I have used the Mod Podge for puzzles but have not tried any of the other products. Might need it for the floor quilt though.

Rosemary
Cntryways@att.net

Sequana said...

I'd love to have that Mod Podge set. I keep wanting to try that stuff and somehow never get to it.

Cathy said...

The floor quilt book looks fabulous! I need a new floor covering for the space in front of the stove. That is where I would start with the floor quilting.

Cathy said...

The multi-purpose cloth would be useful for the floor quilt and possibly a new window covering for the milking room. It may be as close to barn quilt as I get for a little while.

Cathy said...

The Mod Podge starter kit sounds like a fun way to sample a few of the varieties that I didn't know they had. It also looks like it will be essential to the floor quilt and the window shade.

WoolenSails said...

I love making rugs and even bought some cloth to make floor cloths, but the hard way. I will have to check out that cloth, sounds interesting and no fray sounds wonderful.

Debbie

Tonya's Sewing Room said...

wow, i will need the floorquilts book to learn how to make a floor quilt

Tonya's Sewing Room said...

i will need the cloth for a quilt to make from the floor quilts book

Tonya's Sewing Room said...

and i'll need the mod podge to assemble the quilt

Michael and Rachelle said...

Floor quilts sounds fascinating. I love the idea of making quilts for more than just blankets. Thanks for the chance to win such a fabulous prize.

Michael and Rachelle said...

Roclon mutli purpose cloth sounds like a dream to have around for all of those fun projects I want to make with my kids but don't know what to use. I would love to try it for my kids artwork made in to personalized gifts for my parents.

Michael and Rachelle said...

I have never used mod podge but I would love to try it. I have seen plenty of cute projects on line that use it and I would love to give them a try. tHanks for the chance to win.

Pam in Texas said...

Floor quilts! I had never heard of that, but instead of going through magazines and catalogs and checking Home Depot or someplace else for a cute little rug, you can now make one that is a perfect match to your home decor...or adorable in a new baby's room...or a gift for a friend...so many options!

Pam in Texas said...

I wonder if the Roc-lon Cloth could be use to make personalized covers for notebooks or scrapbooks? It's a thought!

Pam in Texas said...

I saw some really cute Easter Eggs on another blog and they had used strips of fabric with Mod Podge. I would love to try it along with matching Easter floor quilts!

Melissa said...

I've never heard of Floorquilts, and I'm super excited to learn about them! If I won the Floorquilts book and kit, I would make a floorquilt for my (almost) 2 y.o. daughter's room. :o) I think they look awesome!

Sara said...

Comment #2----I'd use the multi-purpose cloth for a floor quilt for our daughter's room. I know, not the most creative use out there but I find that using the right material (tool) for the job when I'm making my 1st attempt is always the best bet.
Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!

Sara said...

Comment #1 - it looks like my 1st comment did not 'take'.
I recently learned of the floorquilts book and love it. There's a pattern I'd like to use as a 'go-by' to make a floorquilt for our new daughter's room (she's our 1st and arrived 7 weeks early so I'm way behind on projects to get done for her room).

Melissa said...

I know Roc-Lon is a good company, and they make great products, but I've never heard of this one!
I just read on your website that it is removable as a wall mural or border. We live in military housing, so anything "permanent" is impossible...but if I could make something (a painting?) with this multi-purpose cloth, and attach it to the walls, that would be AWESOME!! :o) Even if I don't win, I'll have to remember to get some and try it out!

Sara said...

Comment #3 - funny timing as I just used Mod Podge for the 1st time this past week and I'm hooked. I've been looking at everything wondering if I can Mod Podge it. I would use it for a floor quilt!

Melissa said...

I ♥ Mod-Podge! :o) I didn't realize they made so many different formulas - I guess Joann's doesn't carry them all! :o)
As my daughter gets older, we're going to be crafting more and more, and I think having/using all the different formulas would make the toddler crafts way more fun! AND...the added bonus of being able to send some of her projects to Grandma and Grandpa. :o)

Janet said...

Okay I really want to win the floor quilts book. I've looked at it quite a few times, thinking of buying it. I would make a beautiful floor quilt for my front hall, where I have an area rug covering the trapdoor to my root cellar. I would love to have a beautiful exciting floor quilt that I had made myself to showcase in that spot.

Janet said...

I a entering the draw for the modpodge. If I am going to make the floor quilt I will need modgepodge. I'm sur I will use it for other things. I have been using it in an advent calendar I'm making for my grandson. I entered one of your other draws for material for the advent calendar. It's a complicated project!

Janet said...

I guess I need to enter the draw for the multi-purpose cloth as well. I live in the Yukon, we have 24 hour daylight in the summer and my daughter has been on my case to make her curtains for her bedroom that block out the light. sounds like this fabric would do the trick!

gill said...

i've never heard of this in the uk so i'd love to have a go - maybe make a fabric storage box??

gill

Anonymous said...

Yes, wouldn't it be great to try the floor plaids. I have never heard of this.


lcloos@epix.net

joanne lendaro said...

Certainly looks like a very informative book to get loads of creative ideas! Love to call it mine!

joanne lendaro said...

Can't have enough fabric, and I think I'd be using it to create something for the new house.....placemats for my new table perhaps?

joanne lendaro said...

I Mod Podge (d) everything I could lay my hands on in the late 70's. I was a Mod Podge fool!! No matter what the occassion, I could come up with something with my handy Mod Podge, pictures and wood....lol!! Brings back memories! (some I am sure my family would love to forget!)

esquiltingpassion said...

Another way to use a quilt. I would love to win Floorquilts book.
Elaine

esquiltingpassion said...

Since I would need Roc-Ion Multi Purpose Cloth,I would love to win this fabric.
Elaine

esquiltingpassion said...

Now for my last request I would like to win the Mod Podge to go along with the rest of the give away.
Elaine

Anne at Film and Thread said...

I would love to win the book and learn how to create the beautiful floor quilts that you showed pictures of!

Anne at Film and Thread said...

I have never heard of the Roc-Lon cloth before, but now I am intrigued. I would love to make a floor quilt with it!

Anne at Film and Thread said...

I love Mod Podge and use it regularly, so a starter kit would come in handy!

annmarie said...

WOW - if I don't win the book I'm going to have to buy it - what a cool idea. (tegens@charter.net)

kelly jean said...

Several years ago I watched an episode on HGTV where a designer provided a floorquilt for a client and I have been searching high and low for information concerning how to make such a beautiful room-changing work of art. Well, now I know... and I would love to be able to make my "own work of art". Thank you Rockland Industries, Mod Podge & Ms. Ellen Highsmith Silver. Happy anniv. IHAN.

janice said...

I could definately use the Floorquilt book to make something for my living room. I'll be redecorating it this summer.

janice said...

If I won the Roc-lon multi-purpose cloth I would try using it it one of my quilted purses. It would probably add a lot of stability.

janice said...

The possibilities are endless with so many types of Mod Podge. A few years ago, my mom covered a chair with fabric using Mod Podge. It is really cool.

Lauren H said...

Hope I'm not too late to enter. I've wanted to try my hand at making a rug for my sister but really didn't want to hook a rug and didn't know how to otherwise make one. Sounds like this book is the answer to my how-to questions. Would love to win it!!!

Lauren H said...

Like Pat above, I don't want to sound greedy, but I would also like to win the Roc-lon Muilt Puopose fabric for the Floorquilt I want to make for my sister!!!

Lauren H said...

Me again! Would love to win the Modpodge to use on the floor quilt for baby sis! Thanks for hosting these giveaways. Learned about your site from quiltdad - I'll be adding you to my favorites to check in on your site regularly!

quiltcrazygal said...

Oh I just love all three! I could use the floor quilts to create something fun for my friends, the Roc-Ion Multi Purpose fabric has endless possibilities and who couldn't use some more Modpodge. Thanks for another great give away!
My class was wonderful, thanks for helping me out. I told them about you, maybe some of my students will visit! Hugs, Jenna Louise

Needled Mom said...

That looks like a fascinating book. I would love to win it and make a few floorquilts. Do you think I could keep people from walking on them?????

Needled Mom said...

I would also love to win the Roc Ion fabric. It sounds fascinating and I am sure it will be needed for the projects in my book that I hope to win. ;) Like you, I have not heard of it before.

Needled Mom said...

I do love the Mod Podge. I have used it for so many things for many, many years - photos decopaged, jewelry, etc., etc., etc.

em's scrapbag said...

I would love to recover a couple of lampshades in my daughter's room and the Mod Podge would work perfect for that.

Petit Debutant said...

I am so glad you posted today's giveaway! I have been searching for the "Floor Quilts" book after i spotted it somewhere but had since forgotten the name of it. I would love to learn how to make those beautiful mats. We just moved into a rental home that has hardwoods and tile everywhere! Those mats would be great for the bedrooms.

Oh and I am a big fan of modpodge it is awesome! it is one of my craft staples!

KittyKwilter said...

I would like to win the Roc-Lon fabric to try a floor cloth or maybe a window covering.

KittyKwilter said...

Number two, I'd like to win the FloorCloth book to try out some of the ideas in it (on a floor cloth of course). Thanks.

Petit Debutant said...

I would love to get my hands on some of that Roc-Ion. I love the idea of being able to paint on it so that I could frame it in a regular frame instead of painting on a canvas which costs a fortune to frame

Ehme said...

I am learning so much from all of your giveaways! I would love to read the Floorquilts book. I used to work for a woman who made canvas floor coverings and I always thought it would be a neat thing to try.

Ehme said...

The Roc-Lon Multi-Purpose cloth is JUST what I need for my next project. I am going to make embroidered window shades, and I did not know anything like that existed! You are such a wealth of knowledge!

SewCalGal said...

All of these prizes sound absolutely delightful. This is torture to pick one, as I'd be happy (and lucky) to win any one of them). But, as I've always wanted to make a floor quilt, I'd love to win a copy of Ellen Highsmith Silver's book "Floor Quilts". I think it would be helpful to inspire a design and give me insights to enable me to make a beautiful floor quilt. If I can become good enough, I'd also love to make floor quilts for gifts, as I have friends that I think could use some!

Nanbon44 said...

I want to make a floorquilt, I think they are so neat. I never thought of using Mod podge for anything other then paper decoupage

Patty said...

I love to try new things, so I'll enter for the FloorQuilts book. Every one of them sounds fun.

Patty said...

I am entering for the Roc-Lon clothe. I'd love to try it.

Donna K. said...

I'd really like to win me some of that ModPodge! I can think of many things I'd use it on!

Patty said...

MODPODGE!! I used it years ago. I'd love to experiment with it again.

Donna K. said...

I'd LOVE to win the Floorquilts book! I had heard of it a month or so ago and am anxious to try it. Thanks for the chance to win.

Donna K. said...

Wouldn't it be a treat to win the Roc-lon cloth? I had no idea you could use it so many ways. Thanks.

jenimelinda said...

I'd *love* to win the Mod Podge. I've been collecting boxes for months now for my three year old's room. I want to have a fun decopage day with him (which will inevitably include finger painting with Mod Podge) to make the boxes fun & identifiable places for his trains, cars & Legos to live. Yay for Mod Podge!! :)

jenimelinda said...

Oh, what fun those floor quilts look like! Please enter me for the floor quilts book, too. I seem to have so much more patience for cutting pretty things out than for sitting down to sew them. I can get behind no-sew "quilting"!

Fiesta said...

I would make rugs for my kids new apartments. They do not care what I make for them so this will let me experiment with color and design.Thank you for the chance

Loris said...

Well, it looks like 3 posts is the way to enter for these awesome giveaways. These floorquilts look amazing! What endless ideas I can come up for those! Please enter me in the giveaway for Ellen's book.
and Thank you!

Loris said...

Another comment here for the Roc-Lon multipurpose cloth. This would be a great win for many reasons...one would be to use in making a floorcloth, another would be in making a decorative carrying bag. Thanks for the giveaway offer!

Loris said...

The Mod Podge looks like a great product! I would use the fabric one with making my floor quilt. The other forms of Mod Podge would be helpful in the many other crafts I do... rubberstamping and home dec.
Thank you for the chance :-)

Duff said...

Giveaway #1:
The whole kit and kaboodle? Dial me in!! I read this book (at the library) about 2 years ago and loved it, but I thought I should hone my quilting skills first! I'm so glad you are doing this giveaway!!

Duff said...

Giveaway #2
I'd like to try this cloth because one of the "ideas" for use is placemats. What a great way to start small and then work up to floorquilts. I'm ready!

Duff said...

Giveaway #3
A starter pack of Mod Podge would be a great way to explore the finishes and durability without a great expense. Thanks!

Quilting_Chris said...

OK, I'd like to win all of these so here is comment #1 - This book looks fantastic. I love the idea of creating floor art.

chris_quilting@yahoo dot com

Quilting_Chris said...

On to comment #2. The RocLon fabric looks so interesting. I loved the napkin rings and can see doing those for quick gifts. I would also of course use the fabric for the floor art quilt I plan to make now that you have given me the idea.

chris_quilting@yahoo dot com

Quilting_Chris said...

and last but not least #3. ModPodge; all of a sudden I am seeing so many uses for this. I haven't ever tried it, but it looks like so much fun. It would be used on the floor art quilt, but I have just seen it used to make fabric decorated eggs, which I thought I'd like to make.

chris_quilting@yahoo dot com

Lisabee said...

I've never used Mod Podge before, but I've seen some awesome projects that people have done with it. I'd love to try it out!

Lisabee said...

I made a quilt for my kitchen floor, but it didn't turn out quite the way I would have liked. I'd love to have a book so that I could give it another (better educated) try. I like the idea of floor quilts because there's really only so many quilts that I can use on my bed (and couches). There's so many options for floor quilts, though!

Lisabee said...

And I need the multi-purpose fabric to make my floor quilts with. I bet it'd be awesome for that... and if I decide to not use it for that, I could make some really cool fabric kitchen containers.

Marcia said...

Floorquilts -- this would be so great to learn how to make -- would it work for a plain concrete porch floor? Please enter me in this giveaway. mlwright29 {at} hotmail {dot} com

Marcia said...

Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth -- of course, I need this to make the Floorquilt that will go on my porch. That would be awesome. Please enter me in this giveaway. mlwright29 {at} hotmail {dot} com

Marcia said...

Mod Podge Rocks -- on Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth -- A Mod Podge starter kit is the topping needed to make the Floorquilt that will go on my porch. That would be the icing on the floorquilt. Please enter me in this giveaway. mlwright29 {at} hotmail {dot} com

Alana said...

The floor quilts are beautiful! I would love to win the book and learn how to make one for my home!

mybusyhands@gmail.com

Alana said...

I would definately use the cloth to make a floor quilt... for starters! It sounds like a wonderful product! Thanks for the chance to win some.

mybusyhands@gmail.com

Alana said...

I loved Mod Podge back in the 60's when it was new, and used many bottles of it!! Besides the floor quilt, I recently saw a pattern for fabric bowls made with Mod Podge that I'd like to try.

Doina said...

Count me in on the Floorquilts book! This book looks fantastic!

Sue H said...

FABULOUS! This would be so much fun to try!

deserae said...

I would love to win and make a floorquilt!

Brenis said...

Oh my goodness! These are fantastic!! I NEED that book!! LOL!!! I am a rug hooker, and a quilter - and of course need to learn how to combine the two! :) This technique is so intriguing!! Wish I had a quilt shop near by that carried this book!!

Brenis said...

OOh ooh please enter me to win the Roc-lon cloth - this sounds sooo neat!! I would make a mat for in front of my kitchen sink! Teenagers doing dishes - too messy to put a hand hooked rug there, it would get destroyed in a matter of days! This would be wipeable i think?! Tooo cool!!

Brenis said...

I never realized there were so many different kinds of modpodge! I have only used the basic kind (and LOVE it!!) Recently made some fabric covered boxes with it. This whole floor cloth thing is kinda blowing my mind, as i never knew you could do this! Would LOVE to try their other products!
Kelly you have definitely opened my mind about different possibilities with these give aways! (And am saving my pennies for those dovo scissors!! LOL!!)

Rhonda P. said...

Would love to win any of the 3 so I am going to enter 3 times!

I love the look of the Floorquilts so i would need the book to get me started.

Rhonda P. said...

To make a good floorquilt you apparently need some of the Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth. So please pick me as a winner so I can make a great Floor quilt!

Rhonda P. said...

From reading your blog, the Mod Podge is excellent for making the Floorquilts. Can You tell I really want to make a Floor quilt!

Sam said...

Oh I'd so like to have Floorcloths. I've made a few but they never seemed to last long enough.

Sam said...

The RocLon cloth would make a perfect rug for my sewing room.

Sam said...

A whole selection of Mod Podge, are you kidding, lampshades!

~ ~ Ahrisha ~ ~ said...

This looks like fun I would love to make a floow quilt from my scrape for the bathroom tile floor. When I win!

Micmacker said...

Floorquilts - a new concept for me! I'm so intrigued by this - it's now on my project list. Winning the book would be great, but I think I need to add this to my crafting/cooking library no matter what.

Micmacker said...

Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth - custom window shades for my daughter's bedroom. We can paint them together!

Micmacker said...

Mod Podge - I have an old aquarium that leaks. I've been planning on turning it into a planter, and could definitely use the Mod Podge to decorate the outside.

Mama24Monkeys said...

Floorquilts?! Where have I been? I am so excited to learn about making these and can't wait to try making one (or ten)
kbsteuber at yahoo dot com

Mama24Monkeys said...

Rec-lon fabric would be great to make the nursery shade that is on my to-do list (not to mention a floor quilt to match)
kbsteuber at yahoo dot com

Mama24Monkeys said...

Mod Podge is a staple in my house and I would love an extra bottle, especially since I just learned a new use for it (floorquilts)

I'd like to win the Mod Podge. Looks like fun stuff. Like to make a floor covering with it

Michele said...

The fabric would be great. Working on a rug and it would be handy.

Michele said...

I'd like to win the Floorquilts. Interesting idea.

CrochetnQuilt said...

I would like to win the Floorquilts in order to create just that...some floorquilts. I have a few rooms in the house that could stand some decorations and the floorquilts sounds like just the thing!

CrochetnQuilt said...

I would like to win the Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth. I think it would work well for banners or substitute for a wall quilt in an environment where a regular quilt may not work as well.

Annie of Blue Gables said...

Mod Podge. I am interested in trying this product. I had some many years ago when I made those stiff dolls that stood, but nothing since.

Annie of Blue Gables said...

Roc lon multi purpose cloth. That is very interesting. I have never heard of it. Thanks for capturing my interest.

Annie of Blue Gables said...

Floor quilts. What a novel idea. Sometimes I don't want to give up my precious fabric, but what better way to preserve it for a long time? Plus it would be so great to have one on the floor next to the quilt you made for the bed!!!???

Mama Spark said...

Love to try to make the floor quilt. Always thought that was a wonderful idea.

Mama Spark said...

Now that being said, would need the roc cloth to make the floor quilt, right??

Mama Spark said...

The Mod Podge would make the package complete, so enter me in for that one too.

Kim said...

Oh WOW......love those floor cloths....I'd really like a chance to win that book.....all that inspiration in one place! How creative is Ellen Highsmith silver???

Thanks for a chance to win

Happy sewing

Kim said...

I have never heard of Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth.....I'd love to win and see what is all about. I think I'd make something special like a wall hanging for my granddaughter :0)

Thank you for a chance to win :0)

Happy Sewing

Sameday said...

Wow, would love the book, I had no idea that you could make quilts to use on the floor. Count me in, thanks.

San said...

Floorquilts, plus looks like something i would enjoy making..

the booties look cute also..

did some decoupage when in school at art classes.. it was fun..

Tanya said...

I'd love to win the mod podge, I want to try making outlet covers for my mom and I have about another million ideas to use it as well!

Lynn said...

First I would love to win the book "Floorquilts" to find the perfect first project and learn the steps to making it. Am thinking a floor cloth would be fun.

Lynn said...

Second comment - the Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth sounds like the perfect thing to use to make a floor cloth. Have not tried the product yet but it looks like it would work great.

Lynn said...

Mod Podge has so many uses but would need it to make those wonderful floor cloths.

Willa said...

Would love to learn to make FLOOR CLOTHS.

I have a friend who used to do so and now I am ready. I have a couple of special needs areas and this might be just the ticket to solve those problems.

Willa said...

The MOD PODGE package sounds interesting. Last week I was with a friend confined to an assisted living facility. She was desperate for some Mod Podge for a project.

I will likely share any win here with her.

Willa said...

It is impossible for me to say what I would do with ROC LON. But I am ready willing and able to learn something new.

A jump start to creativity.

9patchnurse said...

Oh my gosh! I gotta tell ya that I have checked that Floorquilts book out of the local library at least four times. I would LOVE to win it and all the fabulous Mod Podge too. Count me in!

9patchnurse said...

Oh yeah, I love ModPodge and I didn't even know that it came in so many different types. I would like to be entered for the 'Podge' assortment please.

Sorry about so many comments above for ModPodge. It kept telling me to enter the code word again?? I would really like to be entered to win the Multi Purpose Cloth. I had never heard of it before but I totally need some for a window shade in my sewing room.

Nanbon44 said...

I am learning so much through your 30 days, I almost hate to see it end.

Barbieann said...

roc-lon multi purpose cloth. would love to try out a new project using this fabric. very very interesting

JJ said...

I saw the stencil that was cut out of the roc-lon multi purpose cloth and thought it would be fun to give that a try. I havent used modpodge since the 70's but it would be fun to give the floor coverings in the book a try. Thanks for the giveaway.

Lesly said...

Look at all the things you can do with this stuff! I had no idea! I would love to expand my horizons with some of this roc-lon multipurpose cloth!

Jackie said...

the floorquilts give away is fantastic... pls include me, i want to try this out

Jackie said...

i haven't even heard of Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth ... and now I am just dying to try it out. pls include me in the draw and thanks!

Jackie said...

It would be a nice treat to not have to mix glue and water , but to use the real Mod Podge. Thanks for the opportunity

Sequana said...

I don't think I mentioned the multi-purpose cloth earlier.

I'd be very interested in making stencils with it.

SoozeM said...

I would love to win the roc-lon multi purpose cloth, I think it would be fantastic for doing craft activities with my kids, they could make their own banners, bags, and so on and not have to worry about fraying!

Narimasu said...

I have a lovely sun room that would look great with a floor cloth made with the roc-lon multi purpose cloth. And perhaps I try some stencils with a bit of it, too.

Narimasu said...

Modpodge!! Modpodge!! I'm just coming to love modpodge. I've been making what I call 'glue fabric' lately by gluing little bitty scraps of fabric together with modpodge and then making things like pins and boxes with it. It's been so much fun and uses up all the little bitty colorful fabric scraps my friends give me.

Nicki C K said...

ok that Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth look AWESOME! I would SO LOVE to try that! My entire family could make something with that. SO COOL! Thanks for the chance to win!

Fulvia said...

Please consider me for the Roc-lon cloth, thank you.

free indeed said...

Would love the book for ideas...never thought about floor cloths before...would be great on wall or floor.

free indeed said...

Don't know much about rocklon, but from this post it is something I can use...for those floor cloths, for handbags, for anything where stiffness is needed I guess. Would be fun to experiment.

free indeed said...

WEll, modge podge has come a long way baby! Thought of it as only a puzzle sealer; well my eyes have been opened! would love to win and try it's use on other projects!

Dena said...

I would love to be the winner of the 3 yds of Roc-Ion Multi-Purpose Cloth. I've been wanting to get into art quilts and I think this would be the perfect medium to learn. Thanks!

Cath Ü said...

Brenda said...

I've wanted to play with making floor cloths for a long time, but didn't have the moolah to get the requisite stuff. The Roc-lon All Purpose Cloth is a great start!

My first effort, with the guidance of a friend whose been pushing me to try for years, would be a mat for under my cat's food and water dishes. He's okay with water (I'nm the guilty one if there's a spill there), but he's a very messy eater. It would be great to just pick up a waterproof mat, dump off the scattered food, and wipe it down. One minute clean up!!

Brenda

Brenda said...

I love the look of the book, Floorquilts, and want to make all of the projects you have pictured. I fear that if I win it, I may start another addiction!

Brenda

Brenda said...

Oh man, I can really imagine the possibilities with all the Mod Podge varieties. Quite a difference from what I was familiar with years ago!!

After my cat mat, I'd do a runner for the hallway coming from my front door. Again, easy clean, better than a rug that has to be tossed into the washing machine, and fun!! Oh, the things I'm already planning in my head!!

Brenda

grendelskin said...

Oh, I'd love a copy of that book! After 16 years in the house I still don't have a "real" floor in my kitchen and I've toyed with the idea of making a floorcloth, but canvas is dreadfully expensive and linseed oil takes days and days of good weather to cure so I've not tried it. This sounds like a viable alternative!

SewLindAnn said...

That was such an interesting post, I can't wait to see that book. I would love to win "Floorquilts", but if I don't I'm getting it anyway. I would love to make a pretty rug for under a small table, as well as fabric of my choice placments and coasters. I'm so intrigued!!

SewLindAnn said...

I read about the Roclon cloth a long time ago and had it on one of my many "to try" lists. My interest is piqued again and I have got to get my hands on some. I would love to use it as the bottom of a rug, and in one of your posts I saw that someone printed on it and would like to try my own design that way for a purse or artwork. Wow, thanks for all the information and inspiration!

SewLindAnn said...

I have a gallon jug of mod podge, those little bottles never lasted too long with me! But, I haven't even seen some of those in the variety pack. I'd love to see the others and have a chance to play with them with outside pot projects and picnic cloths.

Robin C said...

Gosh, what neat products. Where have I been, hiding in a closet? never saw these products before but if I won, the floormat on the cover of the book got me right off, I'd have to do it!!!

sewmeow said...

Thanks Roc-lon and Mod Podge. If I won these wonderful items I would make me a new decorative rug/floor cloth for my living room. The one I have under my coffee table is getting a bit shabby and I am tired of it.

Celine said...

Floor quilts that's a new idea and I would love to win the book to discover how to make a beautiful one for my bedroom to go with my bed cover.

Celine said...

I am sure the Roc-Ron Multi Purpose Cloth would come in handy to make a floor quilt + I have never tried that fabric so I would love to give it a go. By the way, thanks to your blog and giveaway I think I am going to put Ellen's book on my wish list, in case I didn't win it here!

Celine said...

I have used Mod Podge for napkins before but would be interested in trying to use the started kit on fabric to make a wonderful floor quilt

Jenny said...

I love this idea. It is kind of a different version of the canvas floorcloths.

I think I would need the book...cuz the patterns look amazing!

Jenny said...

Is it OK if I say I would love the fabric so I could use the patterns I find in the book?

I am really intriqued with this idea for Christmas gifts.

OK, for me, too.

Jenny said...

Ummm....OK, I feel silly here but I have never seen that modge podge before and I would totally like to try it.

Jules @ MoonCat Farms said...

I would love to win this book and learn how to make a floorquilt. I can never seem to find a rug that coordinates with my eclectic taste so I could make my own! Thanks.

Jules @ MoonCat Farms said...

I think that I would have a blast experimenting with the Roc-lon cloth. I am imagining things that could be of use in the garden...

Jules @ MoonCat Farms said...

Mod Podge Rocks!! I would be working on many, many projects with this stuff. I have used it before in decopauge and some of my fiber crafts.

RustyBird said...

I'd like to make a floor cloth using the Roc-lon Multi-Purpose Cloth. I would use one of the designs I made in EQ6.

RustyBird said...

I'd like to win the Mod Podge because I've never used it before. It sounds like a great product.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I would love the Mod Podge. I've got one small bottle and use it to make fabric paper. It seals so well I don't have to worry about paper bits coming back up.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I have never made a floor quilt, but I would love to make one for my basement studio. It would sure brighten that dull area. I'm sure there are lots of designs in the book and I look forward to seeing it at my local bookstore.
