This is Marta's new project. She is using dip dye swatches and transitional swatches in a #4 cut. I love the beautiful color combination. She has a gift for created magnificent rugs!
As stated in the Rug Hooking magazine November / December 2014 article on "Floravians", transitional swatches are regular swatches dyed over a pastel colored wool. They blend harmoniously with their base swatch and add subtle variations to the overall look.
Okay I have started my Scrappy Rug for our January meeting. I decided to do a primitive sun and star pillow. I hope to use up a lot of my left over wool strips. I still tend to cut more strips than I need for my projects. I hope to use this helpful hint in the future that I read in one of my much loved Rug Hooking Magazines. (Only cut enough strips that will take you 30 minutes to hook.)
I've been working on this scrappy pillow for about a week now.
