Americana Rug Show and a Quilt

 I thought I would share some of the Americana rugs I hooked early on in my hooking career. I have been hooking for 18 years. The above one is a beginner rug that I taught to new rug hookers when I had my shop in Nebraska.

 The hearts rug was a kit that I had purchased and hooked when I was first starting out!

The quilt below is one of my cherished Americana quilts. A friend of mines Grandma made it for me and it is all hand quilted.

The next two photos, the top one is a rug I hooked very early on in my hooking and it is a Maggie Bonanomi pattern. When we moved to NC I put it on our screened in porch and it has faded over the years to this. 
And this is the picture of the back side~
It has faded just a little! LOL

 The geometric one was a McGown teacher's workshop piece I had to hook for one of my projects and is one of my favorites. 
The rug below is a Lori Brechlin pattern.

 The Sweet Land of Liberty is a Woolen Memories pattern.

The one above is and Edyth O"Neil pattern I believe and I hooked it in a workshop with Anita White back in 2003.

The three below are ones I hooked early on too.

Hope you have a Happy and Safe 4th of July!


  1. Cammie!!!! What fun this was to watch your growth. Couldn't believe the difference in the fading of the rug on the porch. Guess you don't put your rugs on the porch any longer, eh?
