A Little Wool Applique
So I seriously admired this wool applique quilt at the quilt shop – called Mary Ellen’s Garden by Lori Smith. I took the wool applique class in the Fall and wanted to continue, but it was too close to the holidays and the craziness that it took me a while to get back to it.
I titled this a little wool applique, but really this is more like a lot of wool applique. I have been cutting and cutting – first 72 pattern pieces in Heat and Bond. Now I’m fusing them to the wool and cutting the wool into the shapes. It’s starting to come along – all 72 pieces – minus the stems, which I’m cutting last. I numbered them so I could go back for placement.
This is obviously going to be a longer term project, which seems all I do these days. I’m trying to get ready for wool club tonight, but it’s possible that it may be cancelled with this snow storm today.
Edited to add: It was cancelled and rescheduled. Thank goodness because I wasn’t going to brave those roads.
