Weekend Project

I spent most of the weekend prepping these Wool Garden Blocks, my new favourite sewing notion is Misty Fuse. Now I can start stitching without any pins to get in the way or worry about glue not sticking. The first 2 blocks pictured, I had previously finished, the next 10 I'll be stitching on the long flights coming up soon. The wool in these kits is outstanding and I'm enjoying making each one. Now to start packing!

Oh go off and have a blast as I know you will! Hopefully on the planes they will have decent movies for you as well as all that stitching ahead of you. :0)
I don't think I've heard of Misty Fuse. I'm going to look that up!

Wonderful wool stitcheries! Thanks for sharing them!

Quilts And Pieces said...

Oh man, they are all so pretty! So tell me more about the misty fuse with your wool applique. I have some but never used it! And I would never have thought to use it on wool!

Sue-Anne said...

Your blocks look wonderful, dying to see it made up into a quilt.

Shirleymac said...

Never heard of it. I love new notions. I'll have to check it out.

Gorgeous blocks! So nice to be able to prepare them ahead of time and then stitch them on the go. Sounds like a very portable project!

Love the wool applique...especially those sunflowers. Beautiful and charming! The Misty Fuse sounds like a nice idea.

What beautiful blocks?

Lynn said...

Beautiful blocks - I love the colors of the wool. What is misty fuse. If that would make wool applique quicker I'm all for it. It is like heat and bond light?

Karen said...

Looking very nice Wendy. I love the background fabrics.

Sheri Howard said...

Boy do I love wool, and wool applique even more!!!!! I can hardly wait to see the finished project!

Joy said...

Wandered into your blog and I love it!
Am a newbie quilter and I just love the colour combinations on your appliqué. Hope your finger is no longer hurting and hv a great holiday!

GOR-JUS!!!! Is that from one of the Blackbird Designs books? I am just starting into wool applique. It's so satisfying not to worry about turning the raw edges.

Brooke said...

Okay, I have looked all over following the link you gave for a pattern for these wool blocks. They are precious! I'm not very internet savy I guess. Would you be willing to share more information about how to find these blocks? They look like so much fun, and I'm crazy about the colors of the wool. You are really doing a beautiful job too, and I can hardly wait to see the quilt all put together.

Carole said...

What a lovely quilt! That is gorgeous! Hum... you'll have to tell me what Misty Fuse is! Would you believe that I have 3 wool kits that I bought from the Quilted Crow and I still haven't started any of them! Cheers!

Carrie P. said...

Fabulous. I love the different background fabrics.

Your blocks looks just great! You make so many beautiful projects!
I've got my book, and already started working on my "Kitchen Sink". I linked to your blog in my latest post, and hope it's ok;o)
Your quilt is just sooo great!
Wish you a great and creative weekend,
Laila

Beautiful blocks Wendy!

Yvette said...

I have this kit sitting in a drawer. Your blocks are beautiful!!! I never thought of using Misty Fuse, what a great idea! The last wool project I did I used glue and the pieces would shift and even fall off. I am going to give this a try! Thanks!
