A Re-Run Favorite-Wool Applique

Linda's (From the Ladies of the Cloth Group) applique work reminded me of this one she had been working on. This one is wool appliqued to cotton. This post had some of the highest reader hits than most of my other posts! Not just because it is an Album-type quilt but because the meticulous hand-work is so well presented.   So.....lets look again, shall we? (this was originally posted August 2016.) 
I wanted to share Linda's  (from The Ladies of the Cloth group) project shared recently. I have posted a few in-progress photo's but the layout is now complete and the wool applique is absolutely beautiful.

This little quilt is not just sweet, it is beautifully executed. Linda's hand applique skills are superb. The birds and floral designs have that elegant "colonial" look to me. Her sashing and border fabric compliments the blocks so well by providing a neutral background but still anchors the blocks.

  • I haven't done any wool applique for a while, I need to re-visit that!
  • Working on projects that have been languishing in our project boxes can be so heart warming. Like visiting old friends, finishing them is the right thing to do. My theory is that if it has been sitting for more than a year or two, I am not going to finish it and I need to pass it on to someone who will. 
  • It is time to consider Fall decor. I have a bit. My favorite season and Mr.'s favorite holiday (Halloween) are coming up. He has chosen some new quilted projects for me to complete. Even as an adult, his enthusiasm for the day has not waned. As a child it was such a high point. I will need to make him a new Trick or Treat bag, one for fruit, yogurt and water.
