Coils and rugmaking?

Are you wondering about my last post showing some of the coils made at a workshop on May 29th, and just how they relate to rag or hooked rugs?

It is a technique used by Judith Stephens in the creation of many of her hooked wall hangings as you can see below.

Judith facilitated a workshop to make the small silk coils at an International Conference of Rugmakers in South Australia in Oct 2012.
