Everyone is talking about making wool quilts lately.
I have always loved working with wool and since I was in a lazy mood today, I decided to make some wool blocks.
I plan on making a full sized quilt, by making blocks with various designs from my books.
Then I will place them together and fill in where needed. I may do edges and I will probably embellish a bit, here and there, so it will be a work in progress.
I have a lot of scrap wool, some too thin or too thick for rug hooking, so this is a perfect project to use some of it up.
These two are black blocks, I will do a few more in black and the others in tans and browns. No set plan, just make as I go and see what I end up with;)
Unfortunately night shot using flash, so not do wool work, justice. I also did a block with a house and cat, but not enough time to finish that one tonight. I will keep the theme with cats, flowers and birds and maybe a few panels with stars to fill in.
