The Million Dollar Crazy Quilt!!!
Ok not a million dollars but it feels like I have spent that much on wool and thread!!
My friends Leslie, Robin and I decided to take a wool crazy quilt class. I had no idea that wool was so hard to come by and stupid expensive. So what if we don't send our kids to college! ;)
These are Valdani threads from Romania that are specially hand died! They look so pretty in the box. It is such a shame that I am about to make a huge mess out of them!
We had to first piece the wool together. It is not as easy as it looks!
Look at Robin figuring out here formula:)
This is the beginning phase of mine.
This is some of the wool I have collected.
These are my wools for a spring quilt.
Ok when I say quilt I guess I should be saying wall hanging. This is mine all pieced together. Now that we have this much done, we have to go and do decorative embroidery stitches on the seams. After we get that done, we will start all our applique. I think mine is going to be a Thanksgiving and Christmas quilt. In the spring, I want to applique another one with lots of flowers, bees, birds, hearts etc.
