This unique and stylish table runner is made using the traditional technique of 'penny rug' making. Small circles of wool (or wool mix) fabrics are hand sewn on top of each other, then mounted on a base fabric using blanket stitch. Finally, a backing piece and label are attached to the reverse.
In this piece I have used repurposed and auction find fabrics made from wool or wool mix. The base fabric is shaded from mid to dark grey. The 'pennies' alternate between yellow or mid grey at the base and in the middle, with navy or navy plaid centres. Tiny splashes of other colours show where the fabric has a checked pattern.
The table runner measures 30.5 inches (78 cm) in length, by 10.5 inches (27 cm) in width (tapering to 4" (10.5 cm) at either end).
Any questions? Please feel free to ask!
(The table and miniature chest of drawers used as props in the photos are not included with this item.)
The fabrics themselves were the inspiration for this piece - I love grey and yellow together.
