I’m working on this one at the moment. The rugs in the posts over the last few days have actually been created over a period of about 3 months. The biggest issues have been
. the extreme physical nature of crocheting rags
. keeping the edges nice and flat
. developing and implementing the colour schemes. I like colour, but I want these rugs to have subtle colour changes allowing colours to “pop”, depending on what they are surrounded by. I don’t want lots of colours clashing and competing due to similar intensity of colour.
This last one is a fun issue. I am using my stash of patchwork fabrics – collected over the last 10 or so years. Most of them I will never use for patchwork as I have given up patchwork for the time being (never say never). I’m sure if I go back to it I will want to use the latest designs and colours anyway.
This purple rug has muted lavenders, yellows and purples, with one or two quite clear lavender colours.
