My daughter-in-law, Sara, purchased two beautiful hooked rug patterns from the Star Rug Company, Maria Barton, for my birthday. This rug "Tulip Fraktur" is a simple, but very beautiful rug pattern. I am using only three colors. My favorite blues, beige (or dirty snow), and army green. I have the perfect spot to hang it when I am finished. I am using a #8.5 cut which makes hooking projects go much faster!
