A couple of weeks ago, when I made a wool delivery to Tiny Stitches I found a book by Lisa Bongean that I didn't have, Autumn Gatherings. There are lots of great patterns in this book, for both quilts and wool applique. I found a couple of quilts that I have put on my to do list, don't know when I will get around to them, hopefully sometime soon. I also found a couple of wool applique patterns that I wanted to do. Since it is easier for me to do hand work I have actually started on one of them.
This is the pattern that I decided to start on, it is a full body pillow pattern for a bed. I love the dark brown flannel that I found for the background, for the pumpkins, the vines, leaves and the stems I am using my own hand dyed wools. Here are the pumpkins and stems.
|Finally started adding the vines and the leaves. Can't wait to finish.|
