I've been working on this wool quilt since the Winter of 2014
and I can finally say I finished all 54 blocks.
Here's the seven rows that I completed and have shared before.
The last five blocks
The blocks are all wool applique on wool backgrounds.
I tried to duplicate the look of this Civil War quilt by using only wool yarns for embellishing.
This is the back of the original Emily Munroe quilt...
courtesy of Hoopla Patterns.
It shows the foundation fabric and 'potholder' construction of the quilt.
I'm going to finish my quilt in the same manner.
You'll notice the quilt was finished without quilting or binding.

I've been stitching this quilt to donate to the victims of the Orlando shooting.
I still need to machine quilt it.
The Orlando Quilt Guild is sponsoring this has received so many blocks and
so many quilts that they can also donate quilts to the first responders.
A way to let the victims, their families and the responders
know that they have not been forgotten.
