Wool & Dresdens

If you’re attending the Paducah Quilt Show next month be sure and search for Karolyn Reker’s version of YoYoville.     She “fussy cut” little critters for the windows and doors of the houses on the border!  Look how cute these are!  I haven’t seen all the critters yet so I’m counting on you to take photos for me if you’re going to the show.  Think of the fun Karolyn had searching for all the critter fabrics!


Our “Bunny Hill” Kim amazed us yesterday with more of her Dresden blocks.  She used wool for the centers and machine appliqued the entire block.  She widened the stitch width a little when she came to the wool centers.

 Her work is perfect and you’ll be seeing it on some of the new Bunny Hill quilts very soon.  I love the wool centers don’t you?

For those of you working on our Pumpkin Pie quilt, we’ve added a Kimono Silk Thread Kit.  It has all the colors you’ll need to applique the quilt by hand or machine.

Enjoy your week.  I’ll be back as soon as I can :>)
