Mabel was inspired by the Ohio Star quilt block and was originally designed for a crochet/yarn club which ran during 2012.
I’ve always loved this quilt block and, although not British, it evokes a sense of comfort and history for me.
The original blanket was made with lots of different British Sheep breeds, so it can be made from wool produced by small specialist suppliers.
