This House quilt is the second quilt I have done for Helen this month. I had never quilted a wool felt appliquéd quilt top before and it was a lot of fun. I used 3 different background fills and SID around the appliqué pieces plus around the doors, windows and roof line.
The batting is Quilters Dream Blend, black So Fine thread and a beige InvisaFil on the wool appliqué. With the InvisaFil being a 100wt thread it just blends right into all the colors of the wool appliqué so I didn’t have to change thread colors. This was the first time I used InvisaFil and I’m quite pleased with how it stitched.
The backing was an orange Minkie with a stripe design running throughout.
