Same Design - Different Fibers

I made this rug a few years ago, but I had forgotten that it was originally designed to be a quilt pattern.......


.........until I recently saw this post on Carol's blog showing the quilt she made using the same design. I love that quilting and rug hooking are so compatible!


The pattern can be found in Lori Smith's book titled "Fat Quarter Quilting".

that is a gorgeous rug. You know, I have wondered about doing that, I just hadn't did it yet. I really like how it turned out and I have so many quilt patterns.

Isn't it fun to use the patterns across mediums? I have a few quilt patterns I have needle punched. What a bargain too in your previous post!
Great fun!
