Floral Rugs / #3
Flowers are one of the oldest and most common patterns in tapestry, and this is no exception in Rug Hooking. Here you have a selection of floral designs hooked by our members.
House with three flowers
This wall hanging is my original design. It measures 10”x14”, was made with a proddy, using a #6 cut. It was a gift for my cousin.
This is my first hooked rug made with a pattern from Judith Dallegret. It measures 17” X 17” I used wool cut in #8.
This was my second rug. I joined a rug-hooking group in Shubenacadie, N.S. when I was half finished with a hit-and-miss rug I had started on my own. Another member gave me the sunflower pattern she was making so I started it next. I did not have variegated wool or spot-dyed wool, just solid colours, so I attempted to mix and match the colours. I also changed the pattern to make the centre of the sunflower smaller and the petals larger. It was my first 'creative' piece and I discovered I could make the pattern any way I wanted and I did not have to stick to a pattern - it was so freeing.
My sunflower was my own design with help from a birthday card. I did it mostly in a class with Lois Morris so it involved a proddy, carving and the extra butterfly added at the end. No special story except I’ve always liked sunflowers!
