Rug Of The Day - March 24th

Today's rug is a beautiful geometric hooked by Ginny Briner Crabtree.


( This is a Keith Kemmer pattern called Chinese Checkers.)
Ginny took my class at the Ohio Rug Camp several years ago.  We added a bigger border around the game board so that it would fit on a table in her living room.  By studying old Chinese Checker boards, I realized that the scheme of the board is much like a color wheel, and Ginny hooked hers with the color wheel in mind.  I love how the the turquoise and beige/taupe textures work together with everything else.  Ginny gets a special pat on the back because there are about a ba-jillion circles in this pattern!  I think I would have lost my enthusiasm after hooking the first set of ten circles!
