Emily:

I have to be honest with you, I have no desire to work with wool whatsoever.  Does this mean I will be on my own in January?

 

Emily,

Dont you worry, im the straggler that Gini was on about so you definately wont be on your own in January, (wool doesnt do it for me either).

lots of love

Francesxx

Good! I don't feel so alone now! Not that I have a total aversion to wool but, I sure wouldn't want an entire quilt out of it. Small items...maybe but, wool isn't appealing to me and Gini - before you go getting "sly" with me, I'll tell you that it's scratchy and heavy and I don't want it against my skin.

 Oh I agree with you Gini.  I have seen some beautiful quilts with just touches of wool.

gini:

Is anyone interested in making a wool applique quilt?  

Well, I do have a ton of wool, you know.  Did you have a particular pattern in mind or are we just sampling the waters here at this point?  I suppose my answer is yes.  I love those penny rugs and all those adorable little kits you can find these days.  I haven't actually done too much with wool.  I love it, but I'm allergic to it.  It affects me kind of like fiberglass - especially on delicate parts of my skin, but if I wear gloves or just do small portions at a time I'm okay.  It sure would be nice to use up some of that wool.

if you are allergic to it, linny, maybe you should offer it for sale on market place.  you don't want to break out on your hands, that will affect all your working

Sentimental stitches has a free applique pattern. I don't know if it will work for wool. She is posting 1 block each week and has posted 3 so far.

I used my 50% off coupon at JoAnn's today & bought the book - Needleturn Appliqué - The basics & beyond by Angela Lawrence.  It shows each step with lots of detail so I think I'm almost ready to get started.  This is exactly what I was looking for.
