Grande Fleur (29 x 48)

Hooked by Bev Stewart

Bev Stewart of Clayton, Indiana, hooked this rug. Bev’s rug is awesome. The color of the “fleur” is unexpected and with the outlines it is perfection. The whole rug is a “complement,” which ages it.

Katie Hartner of Big Sandy, Texas, hooked this rug. One of the things I love about rug hooking is the different interpretations of these patterns. This so reflects Katie’s personality. The graciousness of the colors and the way Katie moved them around the rug is great.

Granny Donaldson’s Cow Blanket (34 x 57)

Hooked by Pam Krause

Hooked by Pam Krause of Madison, Virginia. The history behind this rug is so fun and the spirit of Granny Donaldson is big time fun also. Pam’s background is soft and sort of wiggles around everything. The placement of her colors is great also, everything sort of sprinkles around making the rug dance.
