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.
