Stair runner out of multiple, different patterned carpet?

I'm planning to diy my basement stair runner and I'm a sucker for older wool carpets. Love the quality, am on a tight budger for this project. Has anyone pieced together a stair runner from different capets? If yes, how did it look? Tips and advice? THANKS!

I think that it would be very difficult to get this project to look professional.

I looked on line under "colorful stair runners" and there were several photos that did not look very good. They were brightly constrasting colors.

However, if you are a talented craftsperson, why not give it a try ?

My only advice might be to put similar colors together rather then lots of contrasting shades. For example, you could use all shades of blues and greens and gradually go from blues to greens.......from the top to the bottom.
