Today is the triple border. This band will be stitched on each side of the zigzag motif in the middle of the rug. I used Nutmeg for the plain bands and did not stitch over them with another color as I did in all the other separator bands. Between them I did rows of basketweave in Natural. Then I added the small motif on top of it.
Then I decided to put the rug on stretcher bars. It’s hard to work with, but I was worried about all the scrolling and what it would do to the long stitches I’ve used throughout this project. At least now, I can once again show you the whole rug in each post. So here is the rug so far – about 12 inches long. I’m working on the center zigzag now and it will be a couple of days before it’s done. Part one is finished, but there is a lot of filling in to do.
