About the image for the logo on this page: Jewel Stretch Tumbling Blocks - 46" x 32" - hand dyed wool on burlap - hooked rug by Sandra Brown. A traditional quilt geometric, this hooked rug was begun with only two colors - the red and teal. All the others were added one by one to allow the entire piece to develop organically as a study in color. Each hue was dipped into its complement, not black, to achieve the darkened effect on the end. See Dye Workshops for information on dyeing with complements, and Geometric Workshop for information on designing this and other kinds of geometric rugs.
