The edge binding is done using a technique I learned from taking a class with Betsy Reed November 2013 and it suits this rug perfectly I think. Gives the rug a worn and repaired look; again leaning toward the antique.
Thanks to Deb Burcin, this pattern was offered for the challenge on the Woolrights Hooking Guild Blog. The free line drawing is on the blog if you wish to participate also. It may be too late to get into the ATHA magazine but you will have a free design to play with and make it unique.
I have just stolen Lauren's picture of the article which was written by Deb Burcin (thanks Lauren).
And this is the cover (also stolen from Lauren from the e-mail she sent me).
Sure hope my issue arrives tomorrow. If you would like to purchase an annual subscription, check out the ATHA web site.
Have a great evening.
