Bungalow Quilting and Yarn Shop. January was Grandmother's cottage, and February was the wolf. Can't wait to see Red Riding Hood who is expected to be strolling through the woods in March! Check out their website to see the same block done up in cotton.
I pieced my block from wool and used 1/2" seam allowances where
possible. I also attempted to press the seams open on the back to
alleviate bulk. I scaled this block up quite a bit from the original pattern. My finished size measures 18". For those of you not familiar with paper piecing, the block is constructed in sections or quadrants. You literally place your fabric onto the paper template and sew on the pattern lines. The paper is sewn to the fabric and removed later.
My wolf will eventually turn into a couch pillow. He needs beady, yellow button eyes and a bit of outline stitching. Hank suggested I do a barn and sheep block to finish off the matched set, but we'll see. I love sewing with wool, but next on the List is my daughter's Easter dress and jacket.
