I got a few quilts and rugs displayed last weekend for Memorial Day and will leave them out for most of the summer. First of all, I finished my red white & blue reproduction of an antique rug I saw on Pinterest awhile ago. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out, except for the way it seems to bow out on the sides. Not sure why that happened since 97% of it is straight-line hooking! Oh well. It measures 24" x 40" and is hooked in an 8.5 cut.
I hooked this several years ago from a pattern that was designed for wool applique. It was in a Create & Decorate magazine and I still like it!
I pulled all my small Americana quilts to display just inside my front door. This is the newest one I made a couple weeks ago.
And this was made the week before that....lots of 9-patches going on, eh? I'm not in love with this one because it seems blurry to me - must be the prints that I used - and maybe the 9-patches should have had the light colored fabrics in the corners? Oh well.
I have them attached to the lattice railing with clothespins.
And this one is clipped on a magnetic towel rack on my metal front door. True, it covers the peep hole that's there, but I can live with that. LOL!
I have visitors coming from California next week which I'm looking forward to! Yay for family!
