UF220 Folk Art Rug
47 x 70 inches
Tennessee $2,500

Believe it or not, this abstract folk art textile was created as a rug. Luckily, it has never been used. The rug is designed in two stacking methods. The first stacking is done in three squares measuring 4 1/4 inches, 3 1/4 inches and 2 inches. Each piece is outlined in a black buttonhole stitch. The second stacking combination is 3/1/4 inches with a 2 inch piece stacked on top and then outlined in a black buttonhole stitch. All fabric is 100% wool. There are two outside borders. One is a black 1 7/8 in border followed by a red 1 1/4 border. Someone in its history has already put sleeves on to get it ready for hanging. This gorgeous folk art geometric piece is outstanding as art for your wall. When hung, the piece looks 3-dimensional, and yes, you could put it on the floor as a rug, but I would want it on the wall. This quilt already has sleeves sewn on the back in case you would like to hang it as art on a wall.
