The Mountain Lodge Quilt

My friend, Kris, put together this wonderful quilt from upcycled wool sweaters.  Isn't it wonderful?  She and I both see this quilt finding a home in a mountain lodge.  Or a lake home.  Or maybe just some place that gets really cold in the winter and needs some cozy-ing up?


Kris says that this type of quilting is called "felted wool quilting."  It's the first time I've ever seen a quilt like this; isn't it great?!


This quilt showed up on my doorstep in the dead of winter.  I can attest... it is super warm and cozy!  My kids took to it right away.  (Don't worry, I shooed them away, so it's still in mint condition.)  But kids know best sometimes, don't they?


There are deep navy blues, burgundy, forest green colors, and of course the cream colored blocks.


And then the backings is piece of navy blue fleece.


It might be spring by now wherever you live, but winter will come again next year, and you'll want something warm for those cold, cold nights!  On my honor: this felted wool quilt will do the trick.

To keep warm next winter and help cure kids with brain tumors all in one fell swipe of the credit card, please ...
