She isn't sure, but what she does know is once felted items fall into her hands they beg to be repurposed. In this article, she shares the meditative process of making small, easy quilts using felted wool pieces. These make for an easy quilt pattern to start with because you use small scraps to make up a patchwork design, and then sew it by hand. It's the perfect fun and low-stress way to learn to quilt.
