Quillie Eyes

Dear Beginning Rug Hooker

Who's There, 8" x 11" plus crocheted edge, #8- and 8 1/2-cut textured wool on linen.  Designed and hooked by Kris Miller/Spruce Ridge Studios, Howell, Michigan, 2011.

Some of the best-loved rug designs celebrate the spirit of Halloween. Many of us have a special place in our hearts for spooky characters and things that go bump in the night. All those eerie, charming Halloween creatures are perfect for working the special effect of quilling into your rug hooking.

By incorporating the technique of quilling, you introduce some unexpected pizzazz to your Halloween rug. It is easy to do and adds a playful sense of mystery to the design. Some refer to this technique as "cat's paw" or "standing wool circles," but I like to call it quilling because it reminds me of the old art form of paper rolling.
