I’m nearing the home stretch on Peruvian Images. I read some where a long time ago that you should whip your rug all round and save the corners for last. This may sound like torture, but the idea is that your corners are more likely to be symmetrical if they are done right after one another. It always takes me a bit to remember just how to mitre them!
I roll the backing towards the rug so there is no finishing after the whipping. This is always a relief at this stage–no tape, no hand sewing! I’ll take it off to the local cleaners to be steamed this week and then take a picture of the finished piece.
