Wool quilt number one

calliopeMarch 16, 2013

The first wool quilt top in a disappearing nine patch, it's still in two pieces, just lain over the bed. I haven't decided yet how to back it or what to use for batting.

I like it! Certainly nothing ugly about that. I don't remember as wool quilts in the family, although I did see some through the years. Didn't see homemade quilts on my side of the family, except one my Grandmother bought that my Mom had. It is all appliqued butterfly blocks edged in black embroidery thread. It appears to be one made by a variety of people, not just one quilter. It's all hand quilted and over the years the threads have started to break with it's weight.
