Wool wonder

Here's a newly acquired quilt. It reminded me of Sujata's solid squares quilt so I took it home with me. It was made to be used. It's wool. There is some order to it, and then again, there's not. I think that is why I like it.

The oatmeal-color wool has a lot of texture. Notice that the embroidery floss tie colors vary. Some are red and some are white.

And what about the surprise border! It's red and light green.

This quilt measures  65" x  72". The rows are  ~3" wide. The backing is a great homespun.


  1. Hmmm, I like it! It must be itchy, though?

  2. It looks really HEAVY! It's a real beauty... the red border is just the icing on the cake~

  3. I love the pattern that's there and not again ... and yes - that red border is perfect! I hope it keeps you warm this winter.

  4. It looks like keys of a typewriter from far! Organized chaos.. that's what I like about this quit!
