Wool AppliqueBOM

A Primitive Garden- BOM

When my husband and I went on our little trip to Las Vegas and Arizona, I found a darling new quilt shop in Vegas!  It is called The Christmas Goose. 
They were so helpful and kind and they had so many darling quilts, kits, patterns and accessories that I just had to keep looking!  But up in one corner of the store, they had the most striking quilt hanging on display, when I asked about it, I found out it was a Block of the Month quilt and they were willing to send it to me every month!!!   Count me in!  :)A Primitive Garden Quilt KitI was a little bit worried about doing a wool applique quilt, because I have only done a very little bit of wool applique, but I just kept telling myself that it is one block at a time, and that seemed to be doable!

This is my first block:Wool AppliqueBOMI really enjoyed doing this block and I learned a lot along the way!  I think that this is going to a fun quilt to make, because a lot of it I can do while watching TV or at our cabin!Wool Applique-BOMHere is a close-up of the appliques!  I love the wool because it stands out so much on the cotton fabric!Valdani ThreadsI had to buy a few Valdani Threads which I have never used before.  But I love working with this thread and I love all of the beautiful colors.  The variegated threads work so well with a lot of different fabric colors.white fabric pencilAnother fun tool is this mechanical pencil with white lead!  It is perfect for drawing the lines on your wool pieces after they have been ironed on!WIP wool applique quilt blockThis is my second block that I am now working on.  I have to do the stitching on the blue flowers, the leaves and vines and the black birds.

As I said, I got my kit from The Christmas Goose Quilt Shop.  The Christmas Goose quilt shopThey are sending me a block every month and it is a 15 month kit, so it will take me awhile to get this one done, but it will be an heirloom to treasure for many years to come!  :)  I have a perfect place to hang this quilt so it can be on display most of the time!

Here is a link for the pattern if you are interested in making one for yourself:

A Primitive Garden

I am so excited about this project even though it is going to take me many months to make.  It is one that I can take with me when I go places, or I can work on it at night in front of the TV!

Do you have any ongoing projects, or am I the only crazy one??

I know that Easter is over…but here is a wonderfully delicious, light, refreshing dessert that is perfect for spring!  This is my husbands most favorite dessert!

Lemon Fluff

Thanks for visiting today!  Hope you have a great one!

  1. Your quilt will be lovely, especially since you’ve had so much practice. I can’t imagine a long time project. I need to get it done or I lose interest. :0) You go, girl.

  2. I admire anyone who can quilt and the one you are working on is so pretty and fun! I seem to have an ongoing project that’s taking years and years to get through….scrapbooking all our photos! Coming along, abeit it slowly!

    1. Nancy, that is an ongoing project that never gets done! I admire you for doing it, your family will treasure it for years to come! Good luck!

  3. I follow your blog. My mother used to have a receipe for Strawberry fluff. I was wondering if you also have that receipe.

    1. Marsha, I don’t have a specific recipe for strawberry fluff, but you use a jello for the flavoring in the lemon fluff, so you could use a strawberry jello for a strawberry fluff. Hope this helps. Thanks for taking the time to write your comment. Hope you have a great day.
