four august giveaways!


This month’s giveaway features fat quarters from Marcus Fabrics Wool Collection and spools of Lana Wool threads from Aurifil. There are four August giveaways—each valued at $112.

The luscious squares of wool are perfect for applique. And they’re ready for felting. Or use them just the way they are for any creative project.

Bright colors, paired with jet black, combine to inspire new ideas and new directions in your quilting.

Add five spools of 12 wt Lana Wool thread (54 yards each) for even more fun. You can use this thread, available in 192 colors, for hand or machine stitching. Think needlework—applique, cross stitch, or embroidery—using one or two strands at a time. Or move to a machine for adding texture and depth to your quilting.

  19. Gail says:

    Yes, I’ve appliqued wool shapes on a cotton background for a current project, Prairie Flowers, by Jo Morton, and I recently took a class in Sisters, Oregon, from Sue Spargo, in which I’m learning “fancy” stitches on wool circles appliqued to a wool background.

I would LOVE to make a project using your wool. Thanks for a chance.
    JoAnn B.

  21. Kristi says:

    Yes, I have. I received a wool candle mat kit as a gift and actually finished it. Once I got the wool pieces cut, the sewing was very relaxing. I also have a wool kit from Primitive Gatherings that I have tried to work on lately. This will be a long term project, I think. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway!

  22. Bonny Broadt says:

    When I make a wall quilt that uses homespun or fabric that gives it an antique loo,k appliqueing wool “cut-outs” of flowers, leaves, pumpkins and whatever else really gives it a special touch, a real “warm feeling.”

  23. Pat in WNY says:

    I haven’t yet used wool in a project but have a beautiful rendering of a California quail that I’d love to make into a wall hanging using wool. I’ve been saving thrift store wool garments for several years in anticipation of finally having time to felt them and get started!

  28. Barbara Colvin says:

    I made an all wool quilt using 4″ squares cut from repurposed wool clothing about 20 years ago. Since then most of my woolie projects have been pincushions and such.

    I would love to try these wools. Never used wool in a quilt before.

  49. Laura Lane says:

    I have done quilt projects with a brushed cotton background that looks like wool and with wool appliques. The felted wool appliques are easy to do and don’t require needle turning like cottons. The projects look folky or primitive.

  50. Elizabeth Eisenhood says:

    I just took a class in botanical embroidery, using wool and wool felt. Oh the feel of these fabrics as I work! It adds a soothing aspect to the process. I’m depicting all the stages of a plant’s life cycle with this first project, but am already sketching ideas for the next.

  56. Beth Barron says:

    Ive used wool in all kinds of projects – from pin cushions, to wool mats, to accents on quilts to full wool quilts. I love it! It is so fun and easy to stitch. It would be so much fun to have these colors to play with and I’ve never used the thread before so that would be something new to try out!

  57. Jerie Clark says:

    Have to admit that I have not tried wool. I live in Montana in the summer and Arizona in the winter so I seldom think about wool. It seems hot and scratchy. I need to win some so I can get with the times. Thanks for the chance.

    This would be a first for me, working with wool.

  68. Eddi Baird says:

    I made a quilt from the wool of my dearest friend, Cathy’s late husband’s jackets. She still sleeps with him at night!!. Recycling? I even appliqued the labels from his trousers (which provided the sashing), a lapel pocket, and a cuff into the quilt. Her son, who is undergoing chemo at this time, has the Daddy quilt as his comfort.
