crazy warmth


 Wool scraps surrounded by denim…..a shameless copy of Jude’s idea…but a very good idea!  I have made many a denim quilt, wishing for more color in the thrifted denim I find….the wool answers that need..and adds warmth too. Thanks Jude for the idea.

Here is my contribution to the wonderful stuff being created and encouraged through Jude’s blog. She set up a great Flickr site with everyone’s creations showcased. The theme has been Crazy Quilt Revisited. It is worth a visit. Jude has taught many of us by example, what mere thread and fabric are capable of and how to push the bounderies, and realize all the wonderous possibility of expression there is with this medium we call quilting and fabric art. Thank you Jude, for your example and generous spirit.

    this reminds me of a gees bend quilt. the color placement and the shapes of the scraps is very visually satisfying.

    My question is this. Is this wool as in wool coats, the itchy kind? Or is this some other form of wool? I have lots of denim just waiting to be sewn into a quilt, I’ve promised my granddaughter. Hopefully you all will inspire me to get busy.
