Fun with Wool!

Is there an activity you’d love to have more time for …… someday?  For me, I’d love to do more with wool.  I love the look of it, they’re generally smaller projects and very portable.  Since the motifs are stitched down by hand, it can go anywhere with you!  The wool is felted so you don’t need to worry about edges raveling.  There are a number of different ways to do Wool Applique.  Would you like to learn?

Debbie Busby, a friend of mine, and wonderful designer of Wool Applique patterns is going to be here to teach!  Her company is Wooden Spool DesignsShe’s designed a project for us that is soooo adorable!

October 17 & 18 we’re going to have a Wool Workshop.  Friday evening from 6 – 9 Debbie has a little surprise project for us, to get us warmed up and teach us her technique for Wool Applique.  On Saturday from 10 – 5 we’ll make the tablemat/wallhanging pictured.  It’ll be a fun time of stitching together.  Lunch and snacks are provided.  The cost is $90.00 for the 2 days, food and 2 kits for the projects.  If you’d like to sign up, email me at: terri@sweettreasuresquilts.com.  It’s going to be great fun!!

Beginning in January, Amber will be teaching one of Debbie’s designs.  Blessed Bee, an adorable block of the month featuring Honey Bees.  Class will be the third Thursday of each month for 12 months, 6 – 9 pm.

This is the PERFECT time of year to snuggle in and do some handwork with wool.  We’d love to have you!

This Weekends SYOB Retreat Projects

Another great weekend stitching up a storm in the studio.  It was the August SYOB Retreat and I just want to give you a peek at the great projects being worked on.

You can read more about the SYOB Retreats on the Studio page.  They are LOADS of fun!

On Saturday morning before everyone returns for a day of stitching, I love wandering around the studio to see the projects waiting to be worked on.  There are the tidy quilters who leave everything organized and ready to go for the next morning and those who just say “I’m done” and walk away.  I think some of us enjoy working in a bit of clutter and others have to have things neat and tidy.  We had some of each this weekend.  Personally, I like neat and tidy but I’m usually working in some clutter!  What about you?

I took some of these pictures while things were quiet before everyone arrived.

The Left Side ~ Neat as a Pin!

The right side – ummm a bit messy!

The studio is arranged with two sections of 4 tables each for students to work at.  Thus the “sides”.

Finishing a quilt top feels Sooo good!  The quilts above are finished or almost finished.  Charlotte’s Fall Wool quilt is ADORABLE!  This is my favorite block from the quilt~

Pumpkin & Kitty Block from Charlotte’s Wool Quilt

Mary’s black and white tree quilt is to die for.  I would never have chosen black and white but it’s absolutely wonderful.  With the little touch of red…..perfect!

Charlotte’s tree blocks in process are equally adorable but such a different look!  I don’t think those trees could look bad in any fabric. Contrast between the tree fabric and the background is the key.

Kelli’s beachy quilt was up on the design board and we were auditioning borders.  These are the final choices.  Soooo fun!

Flowers & Chocolate! A must in the Studio!

Last but not least ~ as the caption says, Flowers & Chocolates are a MUST in the studio!

Hope you enjoyed a little peek into a SYOB Retreat.

Thanks for visiting!
