Something new to spend my money on


My newest love is wool applique. I swore that I wouldn't do it but then I went to a quilt show and fell in love with a pattern so here I go again.




This of course, requires wool.........


A whole suitcase full and then some.......



Then there's the thread.......
Lots and lots of threads...........




Here's the first block of many.........


It will be so worth it when it's done! My new obsession!!!

Here are some pictures of a quilt that I just finished for one of the local quilt shops.






Here's a picture of the back. I love the fabrics.


That's all I have to share for now. Thanks for looking!

Happy Quilting!

That is a lot of thread!!! ;)
The pattern is gorgeous. I wish your stitches showed up better in the picture. They are amazing in real life.

I love the pattern for the wool applique. I have never tried that, but love the looks of it, so that may be something new to learn down the road. The quilt is really pretty. I hope you will share pictures of your wool applique as you finish the blocks. I believe you win the prize for most thread. LOL Winona
