Wool, naturally!!




My hexies are ready for sandwiching, finally.  I have no problem picking batting for this nap quilt.  Have hand quilted wool twice and loved both the process and the result.  Needles without any stress on my hands and is so warm and lightweight that I can hardly wait to get this in my hoop.  Am planning to join Jessica's library group on Saturday.  Maybe we can have a "basting bee."

  1. Woot! I am jealous! Creeping so slowly on the piecing of my stars I daydream about the day I will be ready to baste and quilt the thing. Just gorgeous how yours has turned out so far.

  4. I put wool in my nap blanket and I love it. Be warned -- it is so cozy it always puts me to sleep!

  5. Wool is the best now that I left Florida for northern climes for good. I have invested in some really great wool pieces and have found them to be inimitable in wearing comfort and keeping themselves looking neat despite having slept in the fabric a time or two while traveling.

    Your hexies are the prettiest I have seen online in ages. The blues and indigos just shimmer.

    1. I now wear wool fingerless gloves when I sew! My wrists are most grateful...

  8. The wool will definitely keep you warm on those very cold and windy days in New York.
