Phew...I am almost done with this big inch mat. It is going to be 45" by 43" when finished, which means that I will have hooked 1935 squares. As I have been viewing it along the way, I have determined that you need to stand back about 20 feet to really see the image, or look at it through a camera lens or quilters reducing glass.
I have added a few more colors as I have advanced, mainly because I ran out of what I was using and only had certain other colors already dyed. Will record the colors on the last post about the rug.
