Wool, Pennies and Crows, Oh My!
November 3, 2010
Wool is wonderful to work with. If you're looking for a a great project done by hand, a wool penny rug is the way to go! It's fun, relaxing and super easy to work with.
In August 2009, my guild (Cal-Co Quilters' Guild) hosted a trunk show and workshop taught by The Queen of Wool herself, Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings. The project for the workshop was "Redware Crow Mat" from the book Autumn Gatherings by Lisa Bongean and Carole Charles. Lisa is an amazing teacher. If you ever get a chance to take a class from her, do it! You'll be so glad you did. Here are a few pictures of the finished project.
