A Wool Table Rug

I finished 'Ned and Jake'.  A large wool table rug that was designed by Cee Rafuse of Early Style Penny Rugs on Etsy.  The rug is large, 36" long.  Cee's kit included the design, wools and aged string.  She even cuts out the applique shapes for you. I bought several packages of her aged string for some of my own primitive projects since I've come to love the look of this stitching.  She has sold out of all of these kits.

I used an aged muslin for the backing and the binding.

A close-up of the primitive feather stitching. 

I'm a traditional quilter and I applique much the same way, I use applique pins, fabric glue or baste to hold my pieces in place.  I don't fuse, it seems to distort the look and feel of the wool to me.

The Emily Munroe Quilt

Thrilled to have the fourth row started...

Love the horses surrounding the house block.  The blankets on the horses are made with tapestry upholstery with several rows of couching around the blankets.

I'm working on this block now.  Emily must have found some lime green wool.  She not only used it for the leaves but on the basket, too.

The Emily Munroe Quilt

A few pictures to show on my progress on The Emily Munroe Quilt.  All the backgrounds are wool with wool applique.  The blocks are 10" square.

I love the quirkiness of this block with all the stems flowing out of a very small patch of green.
Emily used a gold wool for many of these primitive pots that are seen all through the quilt with the same white couching along the edges.

A close-up of the latest blocks, lots of couching on these two.
