These wooly blocks are from 2016. So that’s like 6 years ago. Long time. Only two of the blocks are still available from the research I did. Most of the blocks were 8″ in size but a few were 10″.

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite designers, Becky Goldsmith. She has a great tutorial breaking down the confusion as to what kind of threads work best with wool. This is something I have struggled with in my process of learning wool applique. There are a variety of threads available and knowing which ones to try first can be overwhelming.
