Claire and her friend, Julie broke out the wool last week!! Julie is new to wool and Claire has taken her under her woolie wing!. Like any new woolie, Julie is starting off on a small project…NOT!! Together they are working on a combination of the Garden Quilt and Heart and Home Quilt, both by Heart to Hand..hardly a beginner project but I must say, Julie is doing a fabulous job!! But then, Claire is a fabulous teacher!!
Here are pictures of the two patterns being used…
This is the Garden Quilt…
And this is the Heart and Home Quilt. Both patterns can be found HERE!!
Gorgeous quilts…BUT how to choose JUST 12 blocks from these two patterns??
Here’s what Claire and Julie have put together so far…
Here are Julie’s blocks~
LOVE* LOVE* LOVE* this bunny and just LOOK at that mottled wool in the flowers!! (makes me want to jump on the Woolie Band Wagon!!)
The background fabric is Japanese yard dyed Daiwabo…perfect for this quilt!
And here are Claire’s blocks so far…
Claire went for a white bunny and blue flowers…
The bee is a dang sweet touch!
Love all of them so far….
So this is as far as they have stitched…Both quilts are going to be AMAZING!!
Julie has REALLY been bitten by the Wool Bug…she has started the Flower Basket quilt by Wooden Spools!! Originally she was going to make ‘just one’ but after one she is moving on to the whole quilt (sound familiar??) Silly girl…doesn’t she know you can NEVER have JUST ONE?
A Day to Remember~
There is no Heritage Quilting today as it is Remembrance Day… it will be a day to remember and give thanks to those who served our country and gave the ultimate sacrifice….
We remember…and thank you!
