It was 2 years ago that I did a post on the wonderful 'Born to Quilt' edition of the Magic Patch magazine. (Was it really that long ago?)
The patterns and projects were created by Veronique Requena who very kindly sent me the materials and pattern to complete one of the projects in the magazine.
It has taken me almost 2 years to attempt the penny rug but two weeks ago I started it and today I finished it (apart from additional embellishments and backing fabric). I thoroughly enjoyed making this although at times I cursed the cutting out. It was all sewn by hand and I can't wait to start on another sewing project!
Edited: Just to let you know that the 'Penny Rug' isn't actually a rug but it is a large doiley sized table decoration/table mat. It is called a penny rug because of the 'pennies' that are sewn on the tabs surrounding the mat.
