Wool Crazy & Cotton Boll

A few weeks ago I started on block 2 of my Wool Crazy by JoAnn. I like to add my applique pieces then do the decorative stitching. I'm just getting started but I sure do enjoy it. This block will be all about fall and winter.


Here is my completed mystery quilt step 1 of Bonnie Hunter's. And I only made 3 strips wrong! I'll be keeping them as I have a hunch I may need them for another step. If not, I'll toss them into the scrap bin.

I am hosting 15 for Thanksgiving dinner, which for me, is an army!! You all have a wonderful week.
Thank you for stopping by my Humble blog. I appreciate your visits and comments.

  1. Lori, I have been wanting to make Wool Crazy from Joann for like a year! Yours is beautiful! I love it! Can't wait to see it stitched up. Maybe I'll start one. I'm liking this Bonnie Mystery too. May seriously need to consider getting on board!

  9. You gals have had such fun with these Wool Crazy pieces :)

    I've pulled fabrics for Bonnie's mystery but lack pinks so will have to shop (don't cry for me). Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with the army. The more, the merrier, I say!

  17. We should have 16 at our house for Thanksgiving unless the ice refused to thaw and then people might not be able to get up our hill. Enjoy your celebration.

  18. I love your Wool Crazy! The curved piec with houses is my favorite so far.
    Great start on Bonnie's mystery. I am trying to resist because I am attempting to reduce my giant pile of UFOs.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

  21. Your wool quilt is really, really nice, but oh those double pinks! You stole my heart with those.

    Your dining room and table must be bigger than mine. I couldn't fit that many in here! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  28. Bonnie's mystery quilt is SO tempting, but I have to learn to ignore so many of the temptations around me. That's why I'm not finishing projects. I go on to another, and another...
    Blessings to you and your family, Lori. We're truly blessed to have you and your projects as inspiration to so many of us who need the guidance and the ideas.
