Polly Minnick Rug Finished!
Well, technically it is all "hooked" but I still have to hem it! This is a free pattern that I found in the Winter 2012 issue of "Primitive Quilts and Projects", and it is a Polly Minnick design called "Stoneware Horse." Hers is 30" x 50" and is hooked in blues and browns. My version is 17 1/4" x 11". It is hooked on rug warp which sometimes gives me fits. I hook very tightly...I have tried and tried not to "pack" my loops, but it is an illness....I can't stop! I love the feel of rug warp and the weight it gives to the rugs, but when you pack your loops it is hard to keep it from stretching the shape a bit. I think it will be fine, but I would love to do this rug on linen and in more muted colors...I may just do that!
Anyway, I love the way it turned out.
Have a great week!
