Welcome to Butternut Plaid.
Butternut Plaid is a instructional blog about wool applique and hand embroidery.
I have been quilting for over 20 years, as well as drawing and painting for most of my life. I learned about wool applique about nine years ago and became hooked. I taught myself how to dye wool, ribbon, and thread. I loved hand quilting, so the embroidered embellishment of the wool fueled my passion for the technique. I started making my own designs and eventully became the co-owner of a small wool applique design company.
I no longer own the company, but I found that I do enjoy teaching others how to create something handmade. I'll share my passion and knowlege through this blog, which I hope will bring you many happy hours of blissful stitching.
