I have used flannel in applique several times and it is fun to work with. The Maywood flannel is very nice and feels like wool. I also have liked usung Etsy. Have you looked at Shabby Fabrics Winter Solstice block of the month? It incorporates your snowflake block.

Super cute, Nicole. I've never used wool and I'm wondering why wool is used? Is it better? or for the texture?? Thanks.

Have a great day Nicole! Your little mat is adorable!


The 'thread' fabrics are a great idea! I've never ordered from Etsy, but placed one from Spoonflower for the first time this past weekend. I'm anxious to receive my fabrics because they're exactly what I need for a fiber arts project. Here's hoping! 🤞


oh, that is an adorable pattern! would you feel comfortable sharing the sellers on etsy? I just bought some wool from a seller in NY. I needed black, too. ;p it was a good experience.

Lots of cute stuff happening at your house! I made a pile of "to be completed quilts". The fun part for me is making the top. Getting it all finished is another story. Maybe the quilt fairy will appear?? 😂



I like to use flannel as my background fabric for wool applique. Love your spool blocks. Great idea for the striped fabric!! =:)

I’ve used flannel several times instead of wool. Mods and Maywood have beautiful flannel. The LQS that I work at owner is allergic to wool so we substitute flannel for any projects that otherwise use wool. Looks the same most of the time and they will never be washed so it doesn’t make much difference. Happy stitching!
