This is a photo of the original rug, hooked in the 1900's.
The center of the design is a star within a star. Eight hearts surround the stars. In each corner sits a pot of flowers. The border consists of diagonal, hit and miss stripes that meander around the motifs. The center of this rug would be a great place to use your leftover wools and basket of cut strips! Remember, whoever hooked this rug more than likely didn't have large amounts of wool. :)
