Colored Block Hooked Rug
From the book, Comfort Zone
by Maggie Bonanomi
Beat the Heat 2016 is just around the corner--July 16. Instead of doing what I usually do waiting until the last minute I decided to get proactive and choose my project instead of waiting until the night before the event to start planning it.
I have all these left over worms from previous projects and wanted to use them up. Words from Grandmother waste not, want not. I also have re purposed wool from Goodwill.
Maggie Bonanomi is one of my favorite designers--love her primitive style and she never fails to give me inspiration.
Maggie did not disappoint and I found this rug in her book, Comfort Zone. Ahhh, primitive and a way to use up my left over worms and re purposed wool.
I located my sharpie, tried as best I could to draw the 6" squares on the straight of the linen fabric.
The rug reminded me of one of the quilts I saw at the Paducah Quilt Show in April.
And this rug from the March Madness Hooking event in Franklin.
Now to locate my hook and pull some loops.
