I had a great time working on these three designs as they were a bit out of my comfort zone when it comes to colors. I generally like pastel colors but so many rugs use reds that I decided to try my hand at them.
The Ingrid rug was designed after a 100 year old Persian Kashan rug. I liked the many elements that this rug included. This rug truly showed a picture instead of only having repeated elements.
Geraldine was also inspired by an antique rug photo that I found. There was so much going on in this rug that I had a great time trying to re-create it in miniature. It incorporated some of the lighter colors that I love with the darker reds that are so common in antique rugs.
Glenda was fashioned after a traditional Azerbaijani carpet. The bold pattern is very indicative of this style of carpet and was a joy to work on.
My name is Yvette, and I will be writing this blog to tell you about the creative process that has gone into the creation of my Petitpoint patterns along with showing the stitching I have done of some of the rugs.
