More Magazine Rugs to share

I'm going to share my favourite photos with you from favourite magazines over the next little while.
Here's a penny rug in the April 2007 issue of Country Living.

It's gorgeous and was made by the owner's grandmother. She mentions that it is 30 x 60 inches. (right where my camera flashes on the page...!)
Country Living has appraised it at $950.00

I really like the variety of colours in the traditional layout. Click on the photo and you'll get a closeup.

Would I make up all my stacks first for this one? Or would I make a section up and then get to assembling on the mat base?
Lots to think about and imagine. The colours to collect and dye.

  1. Love this it 30"X60"?
    I've been collecting wool for sometime to make one and have been looking at your tutorials for enough confidence to start.
    I love your work.
    Happy sewing

  2. Hi Kim, I looked closer at the article, thanks for asking, yes it is 30 x 60!
