Penny Rug

Penny Rug
Hand dyed wool, 29" x 21 1/2"
Private collection

I completed this penny rug in a class at The Quilted Crow in Boxborough, MA with Diane Daniels.  This is her design and it is made with hand dyed wool. I cut each applique and basted it to the base fabric before doing the decorative stitches to attach the pieces. All the tongues are backed for a neat appearance. The back is covered with a pumpkin colored cotton.
