Teacher: Started with Iris Simpson at Green Mountain Rug School, June 2013


I consider this to be my first “real” rug. Previously I had only made two small pillows. The pattern is Prairie Remnant and is from Going Gray. I was attracted to the pattern because of the various flowers and the possibility for using bright, cheerful colours. I dyed most of the wool myself except for the background which is Dorr Oatmeal. The dip dye for the Blazing Stars was especially fun! I started the rug in a workshop at Green Mountain Rug School in an open class with Iris Simpson. Iris’s guidance, instruction and support were instrumental in giving Prairie Remnant a solid beginning. This rug hangs in my house and brings sunshine to us daily!
