I'm linking up at Nina's off the wall Friday. Check out all the very creative quilters linked up there every Friday.
I've been experimenting with some of the felted wool I've been collecting.
This is a simple little landscape of lake Champlain where I live.
Wool is really good for appliqué, it doesn't fray once it's washed and shrunk and since its thick you don't really need to use batting.
Disadvantages include the limited colors you can find , it doesn't take paint well and my quilting stitches seemed to sink in so it's hard to see. I did try a thicker thread just below the mountains and it stood out more (note to self)
Snowy April afternoon update - finished it!
Decided to add some yarn for foliage and it gave it that extra oomph needed. A vintage button from my grandmothers button box finished it off.
Now I can link up to Friday finishes :-)
