This wool quilt makes a beautiful wall hanging. It's made of 100% hand dyed wool and all the designs are appliqued and sewn with a contrasting blanket stitch. This quilt is suitable for beginners as well as long time quilters. If you love sewing by hand and have never worked with wool before, this would be a great quilt to try.
My first wool quilt started with just one quilt square. Having been a rug hooker in the past, I had a quantity of hand dyed wool that I loved but I wanted to use the wool in a different way. I had recently taken a quilt class and wanted to get more involved in quilt making so the two just went together. I enjoyed working on that first square so much that I kept adding to it until I had completed a whole quilt. I love the impact of color against black and the richness of wool seems to make the colors that much more vibrant. I now switch between cotton and wool quilts because I can't choose between the two, they both seem to fill different creative needs.
