Here is my 2nd quarter link up list. and here is a photo of the finished quilt. It’s been washed once and while the wool appliqué bits are no longer perfect, I think its still beautiful.
I have some more pics of this one showing some details of the quilting and the critters a bit better. Check them out below. Again the pics are really rushed because I forgot all about this one until about 11:30 p.m. last night.
This quilt was all hand quilted along the edges of the blocks and about 1/2 inch in from the seams, with a one inch grid in the setting squares, and a simple vine around the outside edge. This was my first opportunity to try wool appliqué and after I took a course from Leona and Helen at our Quilt Guild’s Jamboree this spring, my skills improved greatly.
FYI I drew all the critters on the setting triangles freehand based on photos I saw on Pinterest. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and I really love these wool applique shapes. If you are or know who the original designers are, please notify me so I can give credit where credit is due.
