Many people came to honor Edyth and bring rugs hooked from her designs. We are thrilled to be able to show you some of the rugs that were on display in honor of Edyth.

1668 GEOMETRIC (22 x 28) by Alice Fraizer

1668 Geometric was hooked by Alice Fraizer of Lexington, Ohio.  This is an amazing rug.  All of the “starburst” motifs are hooked in paisley.  Alice had a good collection of them and so we were able to do slightly different color stories in each one.

1790 Eagle (26 x 38) by Charlotte Lindsay Allison

This 1790 Eagle was hooked by Charlotte Lindsay Allison of Fredericksburg, Texas. Charlotte's background is SUPER. The entire rug is very soft and mellow. She achieved this look by using the mathematical series, identified by Fibonacci. Ask her sometime - it is neat. She hooked the eagle using this method also. Very OLD and wonderful. Thanks Charlotte, kindred spirit!

1790 Eagle 26 x 38 by Ellie Beck

This 1790 Eagle was hooked by Ellie Beck of Madison, Wisconsin. The border on this rug is absolutely wonderful. Ellie's soft colors and the way she moved them around the rug are super. Also love the eagle, and background. Very nice.

1790 Eagle (26 x 38) by Edyth O'Neill

Hooked by Edyth O'Neill. A great lady and a great rug.
"About 1790 Eagle from Edyth: In the early days of our Republic, its symbol of a fierce eagle was proudly displayed in American homes and places of business. He was stitched into quilts, painstakingly inlaid in fine furniture, painted on clock faces and on inn signs. I have hooked an eagle rug for our cape from my adaptation of one of these old inn signs.

Throughout the rug I have worked for variation of color. A narrow palette of pale and muted red, white, blue and gold on a dark brown-black background make the eagle and the border stand out boldly. Each lamb's tongue of the border is a bit different from its neighbor, with ever varying strands of color. The dark brown background has strips from more than half a dozen different fabrics, including dark green and indigo. The pale blue outlining is worked from gray blue plaid, to solid light blue, to gray blue heather, to medium blue plaids. Avoiding areas of monotonous solids helps to achieve the look of an antique rug."

1790 Eagle (26 x 38) by Sharon Brown

Sharon Brown of Seven Field, Pennsylvania, hooked this rug. Sharon's eagle is fun as is her purple star. Her border is super neat. She just "pulled" strips and hooked them in. Absolutely did not "color plan" her border. Very, very FUN.

Birds & Pomegranates hooked by Barbara Lindt

About Ohio Coverlet from Edyth: Early American woven coverlets from the first half of the 19th century are found in a great many patterns. An appealing group of coverlets woven in Ohio has birds and flowers for a border, and is the basis of this hooked rug design. I have hooked it once in only two colors, indigo blue and ecru, as the original was, and again with bittersweet berries and outlining. The main background is a mix of dark heather brown, varied with deep green, blue, and eggplant. The outer frame is a mix of blending blues. Here we see the complements of blue and orange.

Oliver Cromwell (30x42 or 37x49) by by Edyth O'Neill

About Oliver Cromwell from Edyth: A few years ago, my husband and I purchased a dismantled Connecticut farmhouse. While restoring the house, we have also tried to reconstruct the story of the people who first lived in it. In 1768, Thomas Rice moved his young wife, Thankful, into a sturdy little post and beam house in Willington, Connecticut. Thomas carved his initials behind a board above the large cooking fireplace. During the American Revolution, Thomas served aboard the ship “Oliver Cromwell,” built in Essex, Connecticut. The rug, picturing his ship, now hangs on a wall of the old kitchen, near the spot Thomas proudly carved his initials. The sea wave border is drawn as paisley shapes, and the whale is just paisley with a tail.

Schooner (35 x 45) by Edyth O'Neill

About "Schooner" from Edyth: The brave and fast little schooner operated in 1775 capturing a number of British prizes even though the "SPY" carried only 6 guns. When the "SPY" was first fighting, neither the nation nor the flag had been born, but the spirit of both swirled around her. Later the fast "SPY" was chosen by the congress to carry a copy of the treaty with France, which helped us prevail in the war, although the schooner herself did not make it home safely ever again. If any Stonington historian or perhaps some descendant of Robert Niles the captain, can add anything to our history of the little Schooner, please do! Thomas Rice, the first owner of our Connecticut cape house was one of the crew.
