Grandma's Rag Rug

Grandma's Rag Rug

I got this, and several other rag rugs from my Grandma's house recently. My dad told me how he and his sisters would rip up rags and make them into these rugs. This one is my favorite because of the little edge of tiny navy & white Houndstooth. I love it. I wonder what it was in its previous life. Someone's favorite dress? Or maybe an old, worn out apron of my Grandma's? I wonder what stories the different pieces of fabric would tell.
