New and Old Penny Rugs

My Favourite Penny Rug

I have only stitched two triangle rugs, I need to do more!
I am always learning from my rugs and 
with this one I have discovered a secret to create the 
old and aged look I so love.

I dye my pennies 'after' they are cut.
They sometimes change shape
(antique rugs seldom have perfectly round pennies)
they also fray and I just stitch  keeping
the frayed edges.

I am getting so much better at doing 
imperfect stitching and
absolutely love doing those
tiny cotton bindings!

This rug is For Sale

A very unique antique rug.
The pennies are attached to the base
by a center stitch.
This rug is currently on auction at 
the site above.

Imagine the time that went into
this beauty
those very small blanket stitches!

I wonder if each penny was 
blanket stitches and
then layered or
the stacks were made and
then attached to the base...

No is a very
beautiful rug!!

Thank you Ladies for reading and your support.
