Warm and Woolly - more creative life

Warm and Woolly

I just finished making this quilt for a friend who has been under the weather:

What you can’t see from this photo is that the batting is made from alpaca wool, a beautifully light and warm material that sticks to absolutely everything and now covers every surface in my sewing room. I guess it’s a divine message that I need to vacuum more often.

This is the second quilt I’ve made from Judy Sisneros’ book, Nine-Patch Pizzazz. The next one I make will have pieced patches all the way to the binding. I’ve seen some quilters build nine-patches into the borders, but my measuring talents aren’t up to the precision required to do that.

    Did you find the alpaca wool (?blanket) at the thrift store? it is very pleasant to knit with, too.
