Actually I'll start with what will be the something new project just as soon as this commission piece is hooked and shipped (hopefully Monday). I've already designed my rug but will debut it when I get a little more hooked on it after Monday as responsibilities come first. However, my piece is adapted from an antique rug made by Harriet Powers. So Far I've only been able to locate 2 quilts made by her. This one is known as the Bible Quilt and was said to be made by her in 1886. I'll provide more information on this talented woman when I post a picture of my rug.
Another quilt made by Harriet Powers is this one below. Hope I've piqued your interest but bear with me while I finish the commission.
Now onto the something old. Nope, haven't accomplished much on this one either and this is what the rug looks like now. The binding part can wait but want to get the hooking finished so that I can work on the Harriet project.
As you can see from the picture above, the Santa and Deer adaptation measures 23 x 25 1/2; it is hooked mostly in #8.5 strips but for the border was using #9. Have a great evening everyone.
