This is a photo of the original, yarn sewn rug made circa 1900.
The center of the rug has a circle, that represents the sun, with four hearts surrounded by ten eight pointed stars and four crescent moons in the corners. All of the motifs are outlined, to make them pop, on the dark background of deep reds, faded red, and black with the center being light. The only textures used are the outlines. This would be great hooked in more textures. The large size is suitable for large cuts with the stars being 9 1/2 inches across!
