advice re: using wool in patchworking
have searched hither ‘n yon regarding this topic. have some stupendous tropical weight wool (some w/a % of cashmere, silk or vicose) men’s suiting samples (about 8×5). want to put together a foundation pieced quilt. not sure how large the final size will be. the design i sense should be relatively simple, perhaps amish in feeling. i may tie and use sashiko selectively, depending upon how large the design segments are. that’s what i know. any further advice before i dare (e.g., will it fray and so should i use larger than 1/4″ seams, what complications/considerations will that pose)? have only been able to find online sources re: wool batting and felted wool. of course am also concerned about maintaining the quilt after assembly, both in terms of moth/ pestilence proofing and laundering. WRITE SOON!
