By now you all know that I love applique. What you may not know is I love to applique with wool, especially wool on cotton. I love mixing the two. The texture of the wool adds so much to even the simplest designs. My next two books (yes, I am writing two books for 2012) will feature several projects with wool. I am also working on a quilt for a certain magazine that will include wool. So I wanted to share with you an excellent source for gorgeous wool.
The above wool arrived yesterday from Cathi at Shakerwood Woolens. She sells wools in fat 1/8s and fat 1/16s. The perfect size for those doing applique and wanting to build a good stash of colors. These are some of the most evenly dyed wools I have seen. From left to right- Dried Cranberries, Pumpkin Patch, Squash and Rose Dark. She also has some beautiful blues and purples.
Just click on the link and check her out. You can sign up for the newsletter and she will let you know as she adds new colors.
Happy Quilting, Dawn
