I'm doing a "Wool Crazy" Pincushion Round Robin with my Backporch Friends Retreat group. This is my first attempt to play with wool...so I had to arm myself with some necessary essentials! I got 10 different wool cuts in an array of colors and patterns, and also Joann Mulally's book, "Wool Crazy," of which I finally found on Amazon, but had there been a LQS, I could have picked it up there and not paid for shipping!
(My personal rant: El Paso, Texas is a metropolitan city of over 700,000 people, which makes it the fourth most populous city in Texas. However combined with Cuidad Juarez, Mexico, the two cities create the largest population center on any international border in the world...2.2 million people live and work here!)
So why don't we have a dedicated quilt shop here???
My base measures 8" x 11" and is a sandwich of the following materials:
warm-n-white cotton batting
For a couple of weeks, I played with the design and placement of several different wools before deciding upon this fan-shaped look with the directional pattern as if you are looking from the ocean toward the beach.
I'm excited to see what everyone will contribute!
