A couple of people asked that I show the felted crazy quilt that I made, so here it is! It took a hefty number of old wool sweaters and coats and some real patience to put it all together, but boy is it warm!
Close up of some of the detail. It was really a lot of fun to make! And, of course, it has an elephant or two in it!
