Love This quilt in Progress...

I got a text from Carol (school mate) as she needed more fabric for the backing of this quilt shes working on. she had come in to the quilt shop with her mom one day over Christmas when sister Jana was working and i was there visiting. she had made the knitted wool cozies i showed awhile back.
thought id share her felted wool crazy quilt.. as I think its beautiful and all recycled wool sweaters.
She washes them in really hot water which felts them and then she cuts them up. She is embellishing the pieces with wool thread/yarn left over from other projects.
Thank you Carol for letting me share with my blog friends! and i always enjoy hearing from you and seeing what you are working on!
This is Lady her grandkitty, she is  supervising the project...

This is the backing she is will be using..

Thought i'd show you my wool mittens that auntie Mary made all of us Cobblers made one year..

Enjoy your day my Blog friends!              Jody


  1. What a beautiful wool quilt. I love the scrappy look & the lovely embroidery work & the backing material is perfect. Someone will be kept very warm with that quilt when it is finished. It's such a great use of repurposed wool. The mittens look nice & warm as well as being wonderfully unique.

  2. The quilt is gorgeous and those mittens? How wonderful are they? AWESOME!!

  3. It is easy to see that Lady is the supervisor!:-) Awesome quilt and marvelous mittens! xo

  4. I bet that quilt will keep a person warm on a cold winter night. I love the embellishments stitching. It looks so nice and comfy. Great mittens too to keep hands warm. So much creativity stirring all the time.
