I recently went on a great half day tour of some Las Vegas quilt shops hosted by Susan Tracy of Quilt Tours of Las Vegas. Our first stop was Fabric Boutique where I saw this great bag pattern by Charlene Bubb. A great idea for recycling your old jeans.
The second shop we visited was The Christmas Goose quilt shop which featured great gift selections as well as many wonderful samples and lots of applique quilts which I love.
Shown here are some of their quilt blocks using felted wool.
I've been making a felted wool wall hanging using the patterns from my Rose Sampler Supreme book so the felted wool samples were especially interesting for me to see. Felted wool is so easy to use as you don't need to turn under the seam allowances. The pieces can be fused in place and then sitched down with either a hand or machine blanket stitch.
