Welcome Flower rug

Just popping in to share another rug that I've finished. This was my first time using my #8.5 blade....just a little chubbier than the #8. I used the #8.5 on the background on this rug. Now, I usually "plan" on how much wool I will need for a rug before I get too far....on this one I just jumped in and I only had 1 strip of wool left-over when I finished the background.....kinda sweated that one out!
Another new thing I tried on this rug was using a plaid for the covered cording binding and cutting it on the bias to take advantage of the plaid pattern. I love how it turned out! It gives the rug more of a braided look on the edge.
This was a super fun pattern from Bren at www.heydiddlewoolies.com
Go forth and be creative,


  1. You are so super talented Tammy! Love the blue flowers & the background is yummy!!

  2. Tammy - LOVE the bias plaid piping edge - it looks just wonderful!

  3. Finishing the edges of my rugs is my biggest challenge. Your rug is beautiful.

  4. Great job...love those colors! I am very much liking that plaid binding...will have to keep that in mind for one of my future rugs. Hook ON!

  5. Oohh this turned out darling Tam!! I LOVE how you did the border and binding! You're such a smarty!! It really does look like a braided edge! I'm always amazed at how much you get done girl!! I wanna be like YOU when I grow up!! :D
