Penny Rug Table Runner

Hello everyone. Just back from a week's holiday in Inverness :)

Here is a picture of a table runner that I made using the 'penny rug' technique:-



This item is available for sale at Fire Horse Textiles on Etsy, for £45.

If you would like to find out how to make a piece of your own, Colleen MacKinnon has written an article on the subject, "The Makings of a Penny Rug". The artist shares her techniques for making a beautiful wall hanging.

I personally learnt the technique from Janice Sonnen's book, "Penny Rugs: Sewing Wool Applique", which is available new and used from lots of sellers.
