Wool Quilt

The back
I think I started this quilt in 2008 - I remember starting it even though I was still working on my big sampler quilt and I worked on that from 2007 - 2009.

I felt like sewing yesterday, so pulled the quarters off the shelf and got them all sewed up. It only took about 3 hours ... after 4 years of sitting one quarter made. It was the most productive part of my Saturday.

It's made from two old woollen blankets I got from Mum's linen cupboard. I think the print is a Moda 3 Sisters one. I really fancied a pretty pink and green quilt at the time. I do still like it. Maybe I will use it this winter. It measures 70 x 70 inches, just over 1.7m square.

I am not sure what to use for batting given it's wool already. No hurry to decide. It might be an April school holiday decision.

  1. You have such great ideas Karyn! The colours are kind of retro - I like the pink and green - and it will be so warm!
