There was a variety of cuts and styles in this exhibit however I would say that there were probably more fine cuts than wide in this exhibit. Fine is basically 3 and 4 cut and typically does not include 5 and 6 but people who hook with 8, 9 and 10 cuts consider 5 a fine cut - not to confuse the non-hookers out there but I'm just trying to say there were more rugs 6 and under than there was 7 and up.
These two patriotic rugs are by Polly Minick - she is a well known artisan who has appeared in publications such as Coastal living, Country Home, Southern Living and sells her rugs in galleries all over the US. Polly was teaching a class at Sebring and while I love my teacher - I wish I had taken the opportunity to be in Polly's class - she doesn't teach that often. She is the other half of Minick and Simpson and has a very active blog with her sister Laurie Simpson who designs quilts. Polly and Laurie have a beatiful line of fabrics by Moda and I love their style. They are team teaching a workshop at Mackinaw Island this fall and how I would love to be able to go to that workshop.
So many enchanting rugs in this exhibit - so many hours of work goes into these rugs. I thought the exhibit was really good this year and I was pleased that Miss Merrie was debuted among all these fine works.
In Part II - I will show some of the beautiful flowers and landscaping at the Inn in Sebring and show rugs in progress from my class. I hope to get to that tomorrow but in case I don't - have a great weekend.
