  1. I hope I’m not too late to comment here too! Over the last two years I started working with and falling in love with wool and made a lot of projects with reproduction fabrics. So I really love that the Country Crow Girls have combined the two in the quilts of their book! The designs are real winners so I’m happy to add another “must do” to my “To Do” list!
