Shari's Wool Block

I finished this table mat that was inspired by a quilt of a friend of mine, Shari, she has this wonderful old antique quilt and sent me the pattern for one block. I redesigned the border, added green sashing, adding the scallops and appliqued it all in wool on the white wool background. Hand quilted in white wool thread using white wool felt for the backing and the binding is a simple button hole stitch with lime green wool thread. Some of the flowers have beads for their centers, others have roving that I felted to the background flowers. I love three dimensional work.
