Rug of the Day-December 19th

Peace and Plenty is the rug of the day and it is hooked by Deb Nees who has been a student of mine at Rugs By The Sea, Cape May, NJ.  It is a Lori Brechlin design adapted by Spruce Ridge Studios.  This has always been one of my favorite designs.  When I draw up the pattern, my mind automatically starts color planning it with warm autumn colors of browns, soft golds,and muted reds.  Deb has done a beautiful job with this rug but I especially like how she treated the checkerboard squares at the bottom of the rug.  I had always pictured the squares hooked with two alternating colors but Deb has used multiple colors to make it look like a lovely soft quilt.   What a great idea.
