My 'girl gang' Jen, Jeanette, Barb, Marilyn, and I took a wool appliqué yesterday at the Quilter's Cupboard in Uxbridge.
Marilyn and I worked on the table mat from Buttermilk Basin table mat.
wool appliqué class I took in October. Basting pieces this way prevents the wool from shifting, the stitches are easy to snip and remove, and the result is 'puffy' appliquéd pieces. I will be fusing the doors and windows to the gold house pieces.
I used good felted wool for the base and will be backing it with commercial polyester felt and whip stitching the two pieces together. I may fuse them together as well to give the mat a bit of firmness.
I LOVE the micro serrated scissors I purchased for doing wool appliqué. Unfortunately I misplaced the guard for the tip yesterday but found it today. Crisis averted.
I now have TONS of projects to work on which will keep me busy when we go south in the new year.
