Gold is a fun but touchy accent color to use in a rag rug. When it appears in the form of a recycled t shirt, it’s often pretty close to the same color–there aren’t many shades of “gold” in t shirts. Pink and Yellow Log Cabin is the brightest rug I’ve made, and even in that, the yellow centers are only a fraction of the total area. But they sure jump out at you!
Here are some gold rugs that have found homes:
Any of these can be used as starting points for a rug made to your specifications. However, because the rugs are made from recycled tshirts (among other fabrics), they can never be exactly duplicated.
This is my study board for gold and yellow. It’s a little longer on “gold” than I can actually use in a rug, but some of the images show interesting blends and accents.
