More About the Author

Everyone agrees I make a mean quiche. People consistently seem to think I'm athletic and health-conscious, when in reality I'm neither. I despise the taste of fish. The weirdest thing I've eaten---to the American palette, at least---is kangaroo (delish!). Morocco and Vietnam top my list of place I'd like to visit. I adore roller coasters, but am always terrified before my first trip down one---just the anticipation of that heart-stopping pull up the first hill, chains clanking away in a sickening fashion---aagh, I'm trapped! Why did I choose to go on this ride?! The cars will jump the track and I'll be turned to burger!---makes my knees go weak.
I think dozing off in bed with a book on a rainy afternoon is about the most pleasant activity there is.

Format: Paperback
My deep appreciation for the use of wool in quilts began long ago when I first saw a collection of Amish Quilts made of wool at the Whitney Museum in New York City. Wool, aside from being warm , wool is also a pleasure to work with - and it makes color sing.

I've been involved in the quilting world for many years now and I have wondered why quilting with wool has not made a comeback. It seems like a perfect fit to me. Voila! This new book "Quilt It With Wool: Projects Stitched On Tartans, Tweeds, & Other Toasty Fabrics" by Nathalie Mornu (Published by Lark Books) is finally beckoning sewing enthusiasts and quilters back into the "make it from wool" fold. Things like penny rugs have made a significant reappearance in recent years and wools have become a prominent fixture at large quilt shows. Richly colored and patterned wools have, it seems, become more available. Wool is,perhaps, a bit more expensive than most quilting/sewing cottons - but colors are rendered so much richer in wool! This book offers a variety of projects that will not require a huge expenditure (you can even use re-purposed wool) but will whet your appetite for all things wool!

Ms. Mornu begins her book with a thorough and informative section about wool's history, wool types and how to choose wool for the projects in the book. She also reviews things like what the components of a quilt are; batting, non-wool fabrics & thread selection. A handy reference for putting together a basic sewing kit is included in the front of the book as are some suggested settings for using your sewing machine to work with wools.

Good book on how to work with wool. I would recommend it for the person who has not worked with wool before. The book also has great patterns for beginners.
