Do You Feel a Felt Along Coming On?

There is something you must know but promise not to tell.
High on a shelf in my studio are stacks of colorful felt. And I mean stacks! It was purchased many years ago when a sudden whim came upon me and I felt I needed to create in felt. This whim still haunts me today.
The Felt Along involves these shapes. Can you guess what they are?
Being a firm believer in acting upon whims, I have finally begun a felt project. We are calling this project a Felt Along. You are welcome to join me in my Felt Along and make the project too.

The project begins tomorrow. And like an explorer in a foreign land, I ask you to act on your whim and Felt Along with me!
Escapelands #5 by Laura Wasilowski. It could be yours!
And don't forget to enter to win one of my quilts on The Quilt Show Blog! Think of having this sweet little piece above in your house or motor home.

I know I've got some wool felt tucked away somewhere. I bought it years ago when I could not ignore its siren song calling to me in the LQS. Once I brought it home, it didn't call out to me anymore so it got tucked away. I want to play at your felt along so I'll be adventurous and search my jungle of a fabric closet. Maybe it's still calling to me, but I can't hear it because it is buried.

Fun stuff! I have some felt... not a lot, but maybe enough. You asked an we guess what the shapes will be? Clarabelle the Clown?

Hi Laura,
I too was going to guess a clown, but Nancy beat me to it...I'll say, Las Vegas Fan Dancers?!!

I also have a felt stash--the wool kind, which lures you in with its yummy texture! I'll be checking in to see what fun's afoot!

I love working with felted wool. I have a table runner in progress right now. Can't wait to see what you do with your felt.

I also have regular felt for projects with the grands.

I have quite a bit of felt tucked in a drawer. I think the project will be an owl.

I have 2 yards of red wool felt and some awful plastic black felt and bits and pieces of stuff. Can I play too? Hmm? My guess is the beginning of a felted garden.

Hello Laura:
My name is Marina and I am from Spain, I love felt and I like very much your idea, I think I understand that we can invent a picture using the blue circles and green peaces, isn`t it? it`s dificult for me to know what you want exactly.
