Sunday Quilt Inspiration: F E L T

handspun yarn - moonroverI'm fascinated by artistic objects made in other mediums. Felted art is one of those fascinations. 

Felting seems very creative and interesting, and I sometimes wish I'd learned a bit about this medium when I was beginning to quilt seriously.  I can see how felting and quilting would work well together, enhancing both experiences.  If you are a new quilter or if you're willing to invest in another medium, I hope you consider felting wool.  If you do, please let us know how it goes.

I think there can be a lot of overlap between quilting and felt making. I was a felt maker for a while, but quilting is easier to pick up and put down (small children, constant interruptions!) With felting you have to roll with it once you're up and running. It is satisfyingly physical though, and a very versatile medium.
