Bird & Clover

This is such a simple old rug pattern, but it is one of my favorites! Heart in each corner, simple penny flowers, and a blue bird flying above it all (I omitted the bird, but he will be on your pattern to hook or not.) Hooks up fast and really adds instant age to any room!

24 x 18 inches

Antique Hearts

This adaptation was based on the antique hearts rug that I used as my business logo for many years (even before I started hooking.) It really doesn't get much more primitive than this one!

18 x 24 inches


Clamshells - that's what the semi-circular shapes resemble. It was one of the popular geometric patterns for rug hooking in the 1800s. This rug would also be beautiful hooked in pastels or jewel tones. I hooked it in black, red, green and mustard.

28 x 20 inches

1898 Sheep

 This is a pattern that I  adapted from a larger antique rug original to Pa. circa 1897, according to the date hooked into it. The sheep and other design elements hooked in soft, old colors makes this a primitive favorite. This pattern is one of the first known to include a date hooked into the rug.

18 x 24 inches

Antique Flag

My adaptation of an antique flag rug, as seen in Create & Decorate Aug 2009 issue. Adapted from an antique hooked rug that was hooked from strips of old flags.

22 x 22 inches

1897 Primitive Geometric

I love the simplicity of this rug! It hooks up quickly and would lend itself to many color combinations very well. Great beginner's rug, too. Also see the companion punch needle pattern.

18 x 24 inches

Antique Penny Rug

My adaptation of an antique penny rug, featured in Create & Decorate Holiday 2009 issue.

24 x 16 inches

Clamshells Pattern Primitive Geometric Penny Rug, Rug Hooking Pattern 1897 Sheep Pattern Antique Floral Pattern

Antique Floral

This is my adaptation of an antique hooked rug. Hooked with soft, faded wool colors of overdyed and as-is wool makes this primitive pattern sing.

Magdelena’s Cat

She was an amazing pattern designer. Magdelena Briner’s rugs have inspired us all to hook with abandon and just let the rug create itself.

This is a favorite and I am happy to offer it in two sizes on primitive linen.:

18 x 18 inches

Turkey Hill

This is an adaptation rug of this wonderful design from the late 19th century.  You can request custom lettering for an added cost; email me for an adjusted cost. The original rug (shown) was a huge one. I am offering it on linen in two sizes.
