This is the 13th edition of my annual rug projects! Way back in 2006, L.J. Fibers introduced the first Annual Rug Project…similar to a quilter’s “block of the month”…only with a hooker’s twist!

A large rug divided in to manageable…hookable sections that appeal to both novice and experienced hookers alike. Both cut and un-cut wool options were available.

The first part released early in the year consisted of the full hand drawn linen pattern, wool for the first part on the design, twill binding tape and hooking guide. The subsequent parts included the wool and hooking guide. The last part also included a custom fabric label to document the rug…exclusive to project participants.

The linen patterns were available separately beginning in January of the following year.

I’m changing things up this year…
no longer will there be a wait on just the linen pattern
a one time purchase & one shipment*…
choose from…
hand-drawn linen pattern with cut wool in #8.5 & #9**
hand-drawn linen pattern with un-cut wool**
hand-drawn linen pattern only

* begin shipping Spring 2018
** a limited number of wool kits will be available

You can find Hilda’s Flower on the website here


February 20th...edit...
A huge Thanks for the interest in my new design! To answer the many questions I've received...
Yes, Hilda's Flower punch needle will be part of a new Hilda H. Thornbroom collection coming out later this Spring. Hilda's Herbal, was introduced last year. The new collection will be a similar mix of punch needle, rug hooking, cross stitch and appliqué.

As the new collection comes together, I will be sharing progress and updates on my sites...and I will announce the release here, too!
Much love, Laurie
