I’ve finished filling in the background in the middle of the rug on the right side. Definitely looking better.
The borders along the bottom side are now well past the center. The next time I work on the rug, I’ll work on the diamond border first. I only need 4 more of the large diamonds to make it to the corner on the left and that will help be with the other borders, as they all turn the corner. I also want to fill in the background on the last quarter of the center design. I’m getting there slowly, but surely.
