The Rug Is A Rug

The rug is finished. It's as large as it's going to be. Before I added the last 100 feet of cord, it measured 22 inches in diameter. It is now 30 inches. I had fun working on it. I made some mistakes, mostly pulling the cord too tight while I was sewing around so there are a couple of waves/buckles/whatevers. But I'll live with it. After all it is going on the floor to be stepped on by my tootsies.

Will I make another one? Probably not but this was a fun project. Now I am going to go back to quilting so I can have something on my design wall for Monday.

Today is a rainy, rainy day. I will set Taylor up with the GO! so she can cut some tumbler blocks and I will work on the last 2 rows of the black and bright stars. It will be a fun day here today.

Your rug turned out great!

I love how it turned out, and I think you are going to like the larger size.

The variety of colors make this rug a show stopper. Nice Job.

I really do like your rug! The colors are very nice. You have a professional result and will enjoy stepping out of bed onto such a pretty rug.
