Here is another wool penny rug that I finished up this afternoon. I think I’m addicted to these things! For this one I used 1″, 2″, and 3″ circles on 4″ background squares. Then I lashed the squares together with cross-stitches on the front and back. I used smaller pennies cut 1-1/4″, and 3/4″ to cover the corners where the background squares met. I was thinking about making this thing big. Big enough to use as a throw, but I stopped at nine squares because I really need to get back to making real quilts. I’ll probably use this one as a centerpiece on my kitchen table. Either that or I will sell it in my Etsy store.
