2003 'Floral Potpourri'; design by Jane Flynn — hooked by Laura w.Pierce


I choose this pattern as my project for Asilomar Rug Camp in 2003.  Ann Taylor was my teacher and sent me dye recipes for my color plan.   I enjoyed working with Ann and her gentle guidance on the petals of the main flowers.  

It was a wonderful week meeting new rughooking friends, learning tapestry rughooking techniques, and walks along the beach at Pacific Grove. 

I used #4 cut for all the flowers until I started the smallest purple flowers.   I couldn't get enough values into each petal to create the separation, so I cut the strips smaller into #3 cut.   Viola!  #3 cut really gives you detail control.
