Another geometric

This rug is based on Amish Quilt square designs. There are three sections, and each section is one quilt block design. It's very easy to design a rug using quilt block patterns! I chose jewel tones as that is similar to Amish colors. Since my ancestry is Pennsy Dutch those colors have always made me smile. I wasn't sure about the rose color with the magenta but it seems to be working!

Making progress...

I believe I am about halfway (or more?) completed. Actually I have completed 6 more squares since this photo was taken. This is an enjoyable project because I just grab three colors from my basket that seem to work together and hook them in. Other than that there is no color planning. I may move some 'brights" around later but for now I am just enjoying the colors play with each other.
