    Rugs, blankets and tapestries!

    I'll start this thread off with a pic of a 'rug' from another post that I made in the gallery forum -
    Rug Challenge!

    If you have any rug or blanket designs to add - feel free to add your designs here.

    Lovely rugs you have made!
    Interesting thread that I think folks will latch on to soon.

    While I must admit I have yet to get my thread together and the project deadline is looming...
    I at least thought you might enjoy this site:

    http://www.woodworkersauction.com/Rugs/contemp1.htm

    might inspire some other dyed in the wool artists out there too.

    I associate to the praises! They're all great from both the geometric chromatism and for the textures!
    Panta rei (everything flows)!

    Cool

    Thank you rain for your comments and for adding your beautiful satin blanket and quilt. How did you get the satin-like effect? Did you use the tube and pallette-knife perhaps? Or sewing-machine/ needle and thread?
