I love snuggling under a warm quilt filled with a wool batting. The wool makes it extra warm for Michigan winters. The last wool filled quilt I made for our couch was a little too short. When I would pull it up to my neck, my feet would stick out of the other end. I needed a bigger quilt.
The inspiration for the colors in the quilt came from a stack of old jeans in my sewing room. I pulled out all my blue solids and a gold that is reminiscent of the jeans top stitching thread.
The binding used up the last of the scraps from making the top. It looks like I need to replenish my blue fabric stash.
I love the back of the quilt almost as much as the front.
When I'm not snuggling under this one, I'll be using it as a teaching tool in my log cabin and improvisational piecing classes.
