OK, I will start this out.  I have cut my background. I am using black wool after all. I bought some yardage from Dorr Mill.   I felted it .   Its their brand, so thin. Not a heavy weight at all.   Just finished going through all my wool. Found some more brights!! Yeah.  So I am ready I think.  I believe I will do each one of them. They are all so pretty.  I love her techniques. I found some transparent sleeves to trace on too.  Great idea.

I already had used the stapler idea, But using the fray check is new to me. I have several of those laying around.  So  I think I will cut out the first block soon. 

Mimi glad your going to do this. How lucky you have the kit.  Did all the bright wools come with it too?  HMMM using the Jet Kona is a brillant idea.  When will you start? 

Anyone else going to be doing these beauties?

Thanks Candis.  Yes all the BOM's came with the bright wool.  I traced the reversed patterns and attached the Seam a Seam II to the wrong sides of the wool for Curley Leaf block (#1) today.  Made a mistake because of the seams but recovered quickly.  I'd never experienced that before.  Luckily the kit had enough extra wool.  Will cut the background and the pieces out tomorrow.  Then attach them together tomorrow.  I usually use the sheet protectors from Staples for my transparent sleeves.  When I took a class from Lisa Bongean (Primitive Gatherings) she said unless the wool was loosely woven you didn't need to use the Fray Check. Some of the pieces are tiny. Might need that Fray Check.  Each to their own, I guess.  Will post a picture of progress when I've actually made some....

Awesome Mimi! Looking forward to it! Good info on the fray check. So you prefer the steam a seam to fuse rather than staple down?

I just got done cutting all bright wools into 4 by 6.5 in. So much easier to handle. Gonna share some with Chelle. I had more brights than I even knew. So if I can help you with any Mimi let me know . I need to get the clear sleeves. My spouse says she has them at work. So I guess I’ll wait to see. Or get some tomorrow.

what do you use the sleeves for?

I need to get my background fabric and then I can figure out a block to start on. :)

Chelle she traces the pattern on the clear sleeve then you can put it on your background for placement of your pieces. You trace with a sharpie.

Yes.  The pieces are glued down and won't move while you stitch them.  But others have their ways too.  That's just the way I learned to do wool applique.  Whatever floats your boat.  No right or wrong here, no quilting police...

Thanks Mimi, I haven’t tried the fusible yet, just staple and glue stick. So I want to try them all!

This is as far as I go today.  I'll start stitching tomorrow or maybe tonight if I get some other things off the list.

It’s so beautiful Mimi! clap Just makes me smile. I’m fusing wool now cutting pieces. This is so fun. I love bright cheery colors. My favorite so far. Looking forward to seeing yours stitched.

Okay, Y'all, I'm really torn here.  I really didn't want to start something new, but really love this, and would enjoy the handwork....

I may order the booklet, and see what kind of expense might be involved with the wool...

sigh....

I picked up black grunge fabric for the background for this.

What made you decide on Grunge for this project?  I have never used it before just wondering.

Got mine already to stitch.  This was so much fun, I think I like the fusible!  Hope others join in this.

Brenda, I ordered some wool from Woolylady.  

I love the grunge line of fabrics so if I have an opportunity to use it in projects I jump on it :).  Sharon, it's a line made by Moda.  Here is a picture of polka dott grunge.
