Fall Runner Block of the Month

Our new Block of the Month rug.
Karen from The Wool Basket has started a new BOM rug, it's a design by Cabin Creek. Karen is color planning and hooking one block (or two) a month for 9 months. It's more or less a mystery BOM. She's using mostly hand dyed wool, if not all hand dyed.
This is only half of the rug...the right side. It measures 18" x 48". Pattern is available on monk's or linen. You can join in at any time and if you want info please visit her website here.

I like the fall colors against the deep blue background. I can't wait to see it finished!

More of my Floral Runner.

Below are the greens used in the leaves around the rust flowers. The left side wool is the vein, the leaves are outlined with the check and then filled with the heather green.

The greens in the leaves around the gold flowers. The top wool is the vein, outline is the brown and filled with the green plaid.

The small round flowers....the check was used as the outside of the flower and the stripe was used for the middle.

To be continued....
