A Walk In The Garden, is a rug I designed over ten years ago. I wanted to capture a romantic feeling using horizontal rows of soft background colors as the backdrop and the organic shape of flowers as the focal point. I love the old fashion effect the center roses have on the rug, hooked in a style reminiscent of antique textiles.
The background is hooked in muted neutral, earthy tones of tan, camel, peach, and taupe. The lightest values are used for the wider meandering rows that represent the abundant plantings of the flower garden. The medium value background colors are used in the narrower rows to suggest a garden path with small brightly colored reddish flowers and leaves that have "volunteered" in random fashion on the path.
A Walk in the Garden measures 26" x44" and can be found in my ETSY shop along with other patterns and hooking related items.
