I just finished my little (12x15) rug. I really liked how this one turned out. I didn't do any color planning, just followed the photo on the pattern. I wish all color planning was that easy!
I love the grey border and roof on this rug.
The back. I used strips of wool fabric instead of twill tape. It's a bit softer than twill tape. Since it's a small rug, and will most likely be put on a wall, I'm not worried about the durability. The binding is matching wool fabric strips.
This is the wonderful striped wool fabric that created the roof and border. The photo shows it a bit brighter than it actually is. It hooks up grey, with hints of brown/gold and blue. This has made me re-think about mill dyed fabric. I'm now going to search for more plaids that can be used in other rugs.
I almost want to make another one just to see how quickly it can be made. I do have a piece of monks cloth large enough to make another one. I'll have to see if I have enough of the wool.
