These were two that I asked for ideas on back in Nov and have finally finished them and gotten them out to their owners....like all of you, the rush of finishing quilts and then getting ready for Christmas has kept me busy....but here they are...

 

The first one is an older top that she wanted finished and since the fabrics were such deep greens and reds (solids) I decided to use a variegated Christmas thread and then just stipple the block backgrounds....she loved it!

 

The second quilt is a gorgeous wool appliqué quilt that the maker was very scared to send to a longarmer, she had always hand quilted her own quilts and needed this for a show in Jan and just ran out of time...I think I may have changed her thinking on using a longarmer as she also was very happy with it!

Vicki,

Great quilting!  I was able to acquire a huge bag of wool sweaters and would like to make a wool applique quilt for myself someday.  I was wondering if the background squares were a thinner wool or homespun cotton?  I've washed and felted my sweaters and also have some wool fabric scraps I've saved from various sewing projects.  I've not really done a lot of researching the wool quilts though and was curious.

Debbie, I am sorry it took me so long to get back with you, I am just now reading these posts...the background if you haven't already made this quilt was homespuns, which can be stretchy but gorgeous with the wool appliqué....
