Irish Chain Rug Finished

I absolutely love Polly Minick's rug designs. I used her book Everyday Folk Art: Hooked Rugs and Quilts to Make for my Game Board rug and I used it for this Irish Chain.


For this rug I used all the wools I did in the Game Board rug but added in tans. It made the rug seem more neutral. I have had so many compliments on this rug. It took me less than two months to complete. I believe it is because it is a geometric which seems to take less thinking than other rugs I have hooked.

This photo was taken at the library we hook at once a month and I hadn't finished the binding on it but it has long been finished and is presently on my floor.

Spectacular Sylvia! I think I like it better than Polly's version. Can't believe how fast you did it - congrats on a great finish!
