Blue medallion rug - completed

by brae  

I have finished binding the blue medallion rug, and it is ready to take its place in The Artist's Studio.

Cross-stitching time was 154.5 hours on 32 count Jobelan.

Final finishing took only a couple of hours.  The final measurements are 7 7/8" long by 4 5/8" wide.

It fits well with the furnishings, though I will need to add feet to the daybed and whimsical cabinet to make them level.

It's such a striking design, which is what drew me in when I first saw it.  The chart came from Jorge Cubells's blog, though if you plan to make one for yourself, please write to Jorge for the half chart since the one listed on his blog is missing a column in the pattern.  My final rug shows this error, but it's not at all noticeable.

Stunning. *looks for better adjectives* Nope that's the one. The tiny bits of green really pop against the day bed too. Love it.

Long time coming. It's beautiful Brae. And I know you keep saying that there's a column missing, but I have yet to see it, and I've been looking for it in most of your progress photos. I think it's perfect as is. :)

I can't believe how incredible your work is! Meticulous, creative and your usage of color is amazing! I missed out on when you started this - is the shell of the Studio from a kit or did you design that from scratch too? You should really be proud of yourself - you are truly a "professional" in this craft.

Another piece of art, Brae! It's perfect! It contrasts beautifully with the colours in the daybed which by the way, I love, love, love! Also, all these colours complement your chosen colour for the wall.

I absolutely love this rug! I'm doing another rug right now, but I will soon be trying this one too =) I love the colours you have, but I might change some of them for my rug, mostly because I will grab what ever yarn I have at home so that I can start soon =) I thought I saw a missing row at the chart, but I thought it was my lousy printer that missed it, I cant print in colours any more so I will have to run to the computer now and then and check it out. Thanks for sharing, will study your rug and hope to get as good result as you! Hannah
