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.

Aren’t those curves in the border just sooo pretty?!?!!!! I love them!
