Barbara’s Wool Seasonal Wall Hanging

Barbara’s Wool Seasonal Wall Hanging

Barbara made this beautiful wool seasonal wall hanging quilt.  Her handwork is amazing!!  The pattern is by Buttermilk Basin, called Live Each Season.  I used a dark brown 30 Tex thread for two of the borders and a taupe tan color for all the backgrounds in each block.  I use a lovely 8020 cotton/poly batting, that I get from LuAnn at Wineline textiles, out of Ogden Utah.  The quilting on this quilt was all about the backgrounds.  I always want to do something that enhances the quilt, and with appliqué...especially wool appliqué, I love to add texture.  I quilted something different in each background.  I’m thinking of doing a post showing all the different design options I use for background quilting...it definitely would be a great resource for me, when I’m trying to figure out what to quilt.  

I used the -15- curve ruler from Linda at The Quilted Pineapple to get the curves in the tan border, and a 4” circle ruler to get the curves in the corners.  I also used Linda’s 8” & 12” Edge rulers for straight lines.  Her BFF curve ruler is awesome to use around appliqué, definitely helped me on this one.
