Woolens, Flannels, & Plaids - The Scrapbook
  • Woolens, Flannels, & Plaids - The Scrapbook

    SKU: QB11

    This is the latest book in the Woolens & Flannels series. After making several of the projects in the previous books, what do you do with all your wool & flannel scraps? You check out the scrapbook! That's the whole idea behind this book - making beautiful quilts out of all those bits & pieces that you couldn't bring yourself to throw away (now aren't you glad you didn't!). The cover quilt, measuring 37" x 49" is a wonderful folk art quilt using a little bit of everything - cottons & flannels in solids, prints, and plaids; little bits of cross stitch & embroidery (complete instructions & illustrations included); and wool applique. This is a dramatic wall hanging that is a focal point in any setting - it's warmth, textures, and varied techniques combine to create wonderful visual interest. And it's fun to work on! Besides this folk art quilt there are seven other wall quilts ranging in size from 29" x 35" to a little 11" x 14" Folk Art Flowers wool applique wall hanging. One of the favorites at a quilt show is the bear paw quilt (29" x 35") shown in the upper right corner of the back cover. This makes use of all kinds of plaid & print flannel scraps. There are single bear paw blocks, grouped bear paw blocks, and even a bear paw block on point. The bottom right corner features wool applique - a little brown bear walking through a pine tree forest. The quilt is finished with a wonderful scrap border - every little piece of fabric is usable! In addition to the quilts, there are several small projects making use of more scraps. There are lots of pillows - five - from pieced to embroidered to wool applique. There are two framed pieces - one being the "Home Sweet Home" piece that we all would like hanging in our house or to give to a friend for hers. There is a little three star banner just the right size to fit in any space - 9" x 19". And, besides all that, there is a wonderful set of place mats, napkins, and napkin rings made from a heavy cotton linen and stitched with wool applique folk art flowers - a set of four in coordinating designs. Ta-Da!
