Patchwork Rug – Row 2 Completed

It’s been a little over two years, but the second row of the large rug is completed. The stitched part now measures 48″ X 31″ and will be 4′ X 5′ when completed. Here is the square I’ve been working on for the last 4 months.

Each day that I work on the rugs, I put 4 strands of Paternayan yarn into this rug first, then turn around to work on the Chinese Rug. A friend tried to find the names of the squares for me (thank you Wendy!), but couldn’t find this one. The triangles are usually called Flying Geese, so maybe it’s a variation of that. I found a similar looking square called Road to California, but everything was done in straight lines instead of being on the diagonal. Here is all of Row 2. Update: Pat emailed to tell me this square is called Wild Goose Chase. Thank you!

The middle square is called Schoolhouse. The square on the right is a variation of Morning Star. I don’t know why the Morning Star photographs so bright. It’s really a medium Wedgewood blue. My husband will help me scroll the rug this afternoon so I can start working on Row 3 next week, starting on the right side. I still love this rug and hope to get it done by the end of 2013. That will be a real push, but it’s good to have goals.

  1. You are an inspiration…..I am having a hard time getting up the courage to try a few bullion roses and you are working on a 4X5′ rug…..it is beautiful .

  2. HI Jan: yes, haven’t seen this in a while. I’m glad you’re making progress. I love the clean boldness of the squares.

  3. Hi Jan,
