quilt and rug

In may, I had all the bunnies fused to the blocks, except these two. I couldn't do these, because, they needed to overlap the borders. I wasn't sure about the borders, so, I left them for a bit in time out.
Now, I have all the bunnies fused, and stitched around, and bordered. The pattern, I am loosely following calls for 2 inch squares as sashing. I am not sure, what I want, yet. I need to let it percolate a little.

My rug hooking group has started meeting again at the library. My husband is a great rug hooker, too. He spent some of his recovery from back surgery, working on this rug. It was a pattern that he had found as a small stitching pattern. He enlarged it, and drew it on linen. And, in case you can't see the resemblance, that is me watering the flowers. He did a wonderful job on the rug, and I love it. He dyed the sky and the yarn binding himself. 

Finishing this rug, was appropriate during a pandemic. It reminded us to seek for self reliance and virtue.
