Wool Folk Art
This wool block of the month is created from a Lori Smith pattern, From My Heart To Your Hands, called Fit to Frame 6. The pattern is designed with cotton fabrics in needleturn applique, but we chose wool applique on wool background blocks. The blocks are then seamed together and embroidered with a feather stitch. The finished quilt measures 18” x 24”.
Merrie Christmas Wool Applique
Merrie Christmas by Buttermilk Basin is a 42” square quilt made of wool applique on woven backgrounds from Diamond Textiles. There is also a bit of dyed velveteen applique in some of the blocks to add a richness and elegance to the overall quilt.
