It took about 2 months with working on it off and on. It has a diameter of 49 inches (from side to side across the middle). Don't know what the outside circumference is. Hugs.

It really is ok to walk on them. Just a side note, we don't wear shoes in the house. Hugs

Fabulous! Love the center circle and how it radiates out. I'd be afraid to walk on it for fear of wrecking it!

I have ones on my floor that are 10 years old and go through the washer and dryer and the only complaint I have is the colors have faded. They are ok walk on. Hugs

Smokey12 by Smokey12 01 Jul 2016

Make it the same as any quilt. I use fleece for the batting when I know they are for rugs. Hope that makes sense. Thank you, Hugs

It is made in strips of 18 colors then cut, sewn, and recut, and re-sewn. Just requires labeling so you know what is what. It actually makes two at one time. So, she gets twoof them. Thank you, Hugs

Very, Very Nice! to have so many quilts that I need to branch out to floor quilts! A wonderful goal! One very lucky daughter to have a prolific quilter for a mother and friend. I would hope that the things I lovingly created for people would be used and appreciated not carefully packed away, so knowing you meant it to be used on the floor makes all the difference, at least for me. This will be cherished for many years, while a child's circle skirt in the same pattern would become out grown in just a short amount of time. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work with us. Pam
