Twelve Blocks-- Heart & Home


My BOM quilt has all twelve blocks completed.  I've got the winter ahead to put the border on and applique the vines. I love the Pup-- It was Ransom-- with his white paw. I should has purchased backing for it.  Next trip to Green Bay, right?

It's a wool applique piece from the Country Loft. It you have ever consider wool Applique-- try it... you'll love it.

Oh, I love these quilt blocks. Beautiful! Wish I could do wool here but I don't know how to keep the months from eating holes in anything wool. I did one small wall hanging and shortly they ate holes in it. Bummer! I can't stand the smell of moth balls. Any suggestions?

A wonderful wool piece. Wool applique is fun and fairly easy. And looks good. The first time I tried it, I was not happy with the results but the second try, I was successful and very happy.

Very nice, Melanie! What a great piece to work the binding on through the winter. It's just perfect.

I am getting ready to start sewing again! Wool is at the top of the list ;)

Mel, that's so pretty! I'm finishing up my first wool applique. I've decided there's way too much cat hair in my house to do much wool applique...especially on a black background!

I DO love wool applique but you already knew that! I love the snowy colors this one uses. Will look even better when it is finished!
