Felted wool mat - Part 1

 On my Crazy Quilting group I signed up for a wool mat swap!!

Here is the beginning of my mat.  I used fairly light substrate fabric, placed my first piece  of felted wool (a yellow pentagon) in the middle then I basted it in place with my sewing machine using the longest stitch length.  I laid a piece of dark green felted wool next to it, basted it place and then trimmed the one side and kept doing the same steps until I had added a piece on each side of my center piece.  As you can see on the right I have finished basting all my pieces in place and started stitching the butt joints between them. Once that process is finished I will be trimming the outside edges and starting on my crazy quilting!!
