Ginger Grove

Ginger Grove is a quilt made with wool and cotton by Sue Spargo and I really enjoyed making it. The one problem I did have was when I was machine quilting. Because the wool has so much "give" it really bunched and stretched and was so hard to quilt. After all the handwork I didn't want to ruin it with my quilting. I think it turned out OK, but would not machine quilt anything like this again.
BTW, because I will not be washing this I did not use spray baste. I only use that if I know I can wash it out when I'm done.

  1. You have done a lot of wool projects! Was this from a kit? I have a friend who made this one. I never purchased the pattern but I do like it very much.

  4. Wow, what beautiful wool pieces. Is your mom the Idaho Quilter? I saw on her blog she was moving to Portland. That leaves one less quilter here in Idaho. But you have great shops in Portland so I know whe will have great inspiration.
