"The art of floor covering has developed through the ages so that the various classes of rugs carry messages from ancient to modern civilization. Each period brought its creation so that we have many varieties of handmade rugs from patchwork, the earliest, to the crocheted rug, the latest contribution to floor coveringss and this, several centuries old.
Crocheted rugs have the best wearing properties and are most rapidly made. They are made either in one unit or in several and then assembled. When making the final crochet stitch the rug is complete. Requires no binding or lining.
The matching of decorations in rooms is always considered by the woman of artistic taste. Matching the bedroom linens, window draperies and coverings, are generally considered first for harmony in color and design. On the pages following, suggestions are offered for matching the floor covering with the patchwork quilts. Many other creations along this line can be produced, but those submitted will give an idea as to the possibilities of matching bed and floor coverings..."
