Polly Minick

This beautiful rug is a design by Polly Minick and can be found in her book titled "The Spirit of Sacagawea". 
This is the cover of the book in which there are two rug designs that may be enlarged for rug hooking and there are numerous quilt blocks by her sister Laurie, also suitable as hooking projects.  You can order you book HERE.
The Spirit of Sacagawea - by Minick and Simpson - A Textile Tribute to an American Heroine
I am presently drawing out that pattern for someone as I am the authorized agent for Polly to draw her designs.  Polly no longer does kits but if you are interested in a pattern on linen, contact POLLY and she will in turn advise me of the order and give you my e-mail.

Polly just had a showing of her rugs and a demonstration in a Ralph Lauren Showroom.  If you live in the Naples, Florida area perhaps you were lucky enough to enjoy her presentation.  If not, here is Polly and Laurie's BLOG and you can enjoy the show now.

Have a great evening everyone.



  1. That design, it's very pretty!

  2. I love her whales designs best of all.

  3. Drawing out her patterns must keep you pretty busy.
    It is a pretty rug for sure.

  4. I have a few of their books and love their mix of rugs and quilts in the books.


  5. *****the design is based on an antique and is currently on the wall of a home in southern connecticut. anyone can draw up the design.

  6. I just love Polly's rugs. This one is a particular favorite.

    wishing you a lovely day,

  7. Based on Polly's blue and white Santa rug you drew out for me, you will be a definite asset to keeping Polly's rugs in circulation. Having just about all her books, I have several earmarked on my "to-do" list. Just need to get a few more finished before I add more to my stack.
    Thanks for thinking of our feathered friends during this bitter winter.

  8. Oh, one more book I must buy.
    Great pattern.
    Hugs :)
