Further work on the carpet. I'm getting "bubbling" inside the shapes, probably from threads being forced to the center by the thickness of the yarn, and will be dealing with that by splitting the diamonds into triangles and taking three threads a stitch on the middle line instead of the two threads throughout the rest of the work.

I started this project 5-8 years ago and work on it from time to time. I am actually nearly finished with quilting around the motifs, especially since the right-hand side (which will be the top) doesn't need stitched since it will be folded over to make the pocket for hanging on a rod. The next step is deciding how to finish the edges and I haven't made up my mind how that will be done.
