This and That Tuesday…

Last week at Heritage Quilting, Elizabeth (one of the members) was telling me about a Wool Quilt that she made a few years back.  Well of course I asked if she could bring it in to show US…and low and behold that’s exactly what she did!! 

Now I wish the pictures did this quilt justice.  When she unfolded it I literally gasped!!  I want to MAKE this quilt!!  It’s scrappy, Fallish and screams WOOL top and bottom!!  Elizabeth said this quilt is on her couch and it is the one that EVERYONE wants to cuddle up to while they watch TV!


She used scraps of Wool from other projects, recycled coats and skirts…


Can you see how Elizabeth quilted it?  She machine quilted in the ditch and then outlined the fall appliquéd leaves and then sprinkled the ghost leaves here and there!  VERY effective!


Even the backing is wool…and there is Warm and Natural batting inside…SEW cozy!!


Yup another project for the ol’  (and very FULL) Bucket List! 


If you are into Wool then chances are you have plenty of scraps to make a quilt like this…or something similar…perhaps a snowflake quilt, a Christmas Quilt, a flower quilt…the ideas are endless!  

P1150833 Ahhh don’t you love wool?  Speaking of which…look what Vicky made!  G-orange-ous isn’t it!!


Take a close-up look at Vicky’s stitching…sheer perfection!!  Vicky came out of the womb with a needle and thread!  Just lovely…she is a born natural for wool work!! 


Do we have ANOTHER WOOL CRAZY on our hands?  I hope so…I was getting lonely!


Wonder what Vicky will be stitching next….?

  1. Wonderful quilt, tempting me to pull mine out and start back on it. I need to do the details and then remember what I was doing, lol. I did cut out the backing, so at least I know the size and can figure out what I need to fill in, from there.


  2. Oh, Elizabeth and Vicki, wonderful projects!!! Paulette, I've been hopping at the Hop!

  3. Lovely quilt and I really love that pumpkin table runner! Too sweet!
