This is the first in a new series of small quilts I've been working on called Little Woolies! Woolie Welcome is 22" square and has cotton backgrounds and wool appliqué. The applique is so easy with wool! The stars, pineapples and sashing are all easy applique stitched on a basic machine pieced background. It's a quick little project and would be perfect for a table topper or a wall hanging! Order your copy today from my website, Hallbrook Designs.
I've also been playing with those wool garments again. I got my crock pot out again and did my best to fix some of the wools I dyed the first time I tried this. They were blotchy and colorful, but not quite what I was looking for. This time I used more packs of Kool-Ade for a deeper color. It worked great! The colors are a bit brighter in this picture, but I am really happy with them. I was told that this type of dying would wash out, but I found out it is permanent when I tried to wash some out...so I know it will be ok to use these in a project that may be washed in the future. I might try washing one more time with a piece of white fabric to see if it bleeds. So far I'm having fun! Will cook a little more wool today since I have a few more packets of that sweet smelling colored powder!
