More Photos from Mesa Workshop

With this post I will show the rugs in progress for class members.  In my final post (in a few days) I'll show photos of the rug show on our third day of class.  For additional coverage of this workshop, please see Carol's blog at:  http://www.ticklepie.typepad.com/

While the main focus of the workshop was using techniques and specially selected fabrics to bring an old look to your rug, we also spent some time on studying Magdalena's contribution to rug hooking.  You can see the influence of her work in several of these rugs, along with antique style elements:  scale of size and blocking technique for the background.
