It's a Fall Family Frak-off!

Now you might be asking yourself, what in the heck is a Frak-off?  Yes, it is a term concocted by youths (my sister and I to be exact)... And it means WAR!  If you are a sibling then you understand the undying need to beat your sibling at anything and everything. Hence the "Frak-off" was born.

We will begin with Susan Fellers design in a box. If you are unfamiliar with this product it is a tool to help those who are starting to venture into designing their own patterns. It is comprised of a design book which tells you all about the history of Frakturs, design tips, color techniques, composition and more!  The box also comes fully stocked with templates to aid in the design process. Perfect for a beginner, those interested in Frakturs or advanced rug hookers looking for a fun project!

So Mariah and I decided to turn this Frakturs in a box into a competition to see who could design and hook the best pattern. Or a "Frak-off" if you will.

Below is a photo of each of our designs. Tell us whose you like better. I did not include our names so there will be no retaliation against those of you who don't pick mine!  I will post more photos of our process as we go on Facebook. Make sure to "like" our page to get the updates!  Enjoy!

    Interesting you both selected the same motif for border. Perhaps it is genetics.
