I've seen some interesting things in my 14years of longarm quilting.
But this may have been the most interesting.
I got a call from Helene.
Helene has sheep and wanted to use their wool for her quilt. Would I do it?
Helene brought out the wool and I'll admit, I wouldn't have guessed it was 'homemade'. Well, not exactly homemade. The sheep get sheared and Helene washes the wool a minimum of 7 times; combing the wool each time to get all the bits and pieces out of it.
It then goes to a factory where they batt the wool.
The catch? The wool needs fluffed before it can be used.
And fluffed A LOT.
Hands down, this is one of my favourite patterns.
