Throw rugs taught at Restoration Rally

Just returned from Restoration Rally. Susan Tiegs taught a class on curtains, cushions and cotton throw rugs. I thought she called the cotton throw rugs "Chinelle Rugs" but when I looked on line for directions they looked nothing like the layered rugs that she showed. I left the class early and did not get the directions on how to make the lovely rugs and they were not in the hand-out with the rest of the projects. Can anyone help? Thank you.

It's actually spelled Chenille, maybe this'll help

Thank you for the spelling correction and the link. That is what I looked up and that is not what she made, it was a layered cotton rug. Anyone back from the Restoration Rally yet?

Question

When you throw rugs, do you spin them like a frisbee, wad them up and heave them like a shotput, or is there some other better method?

Like a javelin, they're easier to store.

Hey, Snakecharmer! It was so nice to meet you at the Restoration Rally! Jim and I just made it home....long day! Try posting your comment on this thread specifically for the 5th Annual Restoration Rally. I'm sure someone who attended Susan's class will be able to respond. Look forward to seeing you next year!

I loved those rugs, too, and I am afraid I was having a hard time finding some instructions for making them online, but I did find directions to make a baby blanket with the same premise. So, I hope this link helps!
