January OMG Update

I made significant progress on my Floral No. 7 rug this month and am very happy with how it is shaping up.  I redrew the border, changing from the "targets" to vines and leaves, and finished hooking the center. I am mixing the colors from the center motifs in the leaves, going a little heavy on the light gray, mainly because I have more of that left over than any of the other wools.


It's hard to tell how large this one is from the photo.  It isn't huge, but at 31.5"x 52" it is by no means tiny!  I am hoping I can finish it up in February.  I'm linking up with Elm Street Quilts' One Monthly Goal January Finishes, considering this month's box checked!

Your rug is gorgeous. Love the subtle colors. So glad you mentioned the size -- did not realize it was that large. Great job!

I love this. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.

Oh! That *is* a lot larger than it appears in the photo. It's very pretty, too. I love the leaf change-up in the border. I bet hooking is just as relaxing/satisfying for an evening TV project as hand applique is.

It's turning out so beautifully!
