"Wool Crazy Day"

We're a little tardy with the blog today because.... we went a little "Wool Crazy" this morning.



Jo Ann Mullaly passed the torch over to Susy...  and today we started on a new adventure.

We had a Great Class!!! 

Here is Marilee,  a returning student showing off her wonderful piece. I love that red check basket!




Joan held hers up,  and got a lot of "Ooh's and Ahh's.
Do you see a reindeer?




Even Kathy got in on the sharing... yes, that's her hiding behind her beautiful quilt. And, by the way it's finished too. Wool Crazy quilts come in all sizes!

What will her next one look like?




Tina shares a memory wool crazy quilt she made for her mother. There really is no limit to the possibilities of a wool crazy project.




We are so thrilled to welcome a couple of new gals! Lynda on the left and Darlene on the right.

Did I mention how great they did today?
Yup... they did great!

Thank you... to everyone for coming today.
 



"Welcome Home" is now available and for sale in the shop.
Cheryl Wall designed this quilt for the Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine, Spring 2013.

We have the kits ready to go! The size is 50 x 78 and the cost is $72.95.



Here's another sweet quilt from the Spring 2013 issue of "Primitive Quilts and Projects"

It's called... "Montana Majesty" and we will be kitting it very soon. We are making ours in a wall hanging size of 25 x 29.  The background is cotton and the star flower is wool.
Love it!
