Quilting How To Video: All About Wool!

From the pattern to the finished creation, we’ve created a video tutorial of some tips and tricks we use when we’re working with wool. We explore the tools we use, how to reverse your pattern, the use of fusible web, prepping your pieces, how to lay out your pieces, the threads we use, and so much more. There are many techniques to choose from when doing wool applique.  What you are about to see is the way we like to do it.  Try different techniques and discover the one that works best for you.  Just remember when choosing a pattern, if you aren’t going to do it their way, you might have to make some adjustments.  No matter how you do it – just have fun!
