rug hooking background

It's time to work on the background for my Cleveland rug. I wanted to use several different dark blues. Some of the wool , I "married" together to keep the variety. Marrying is the rug hooking term for put it into a pot and boil it together. I like a scrappy look even in my rug hooking. If it looks intentional, it can cover any mistakes. I used an accuquilt die that is a size 8 to cut my strips. An 8 will work quickly and give a more even background.

I like to throw everything into a container and just pull out random strips.
