The Emily Munroe Quilt

I have finally finished my 
Emily Munroe Quilt.

Years of hand stitching to complete this 
replica of a Civil War quilt.

Wool applique on wool backgrounds with 
yarn and specialty threads for embellishment.
Instead of quilting, I used the potholder method
to finish the quilt.

The original quilt is showcased in
this pattern from Francine Quinn
of Hoopla Patterns.

My finished top of Sue Spargo's 
2018 BOM Homegrown.

Wool and cotton applique on backgrounds of wool
with a zillion embellishment stitches.

The individual house blocks are five inches square.

Sue's designs are all about detail...

The book for Homegrown will be available in September
or October on Sue's website.

You're telling me...

 You don't...

have a clue...


who has...

been eating...

 my geraniums.

The face of innocence...

The Emily Munroe Quilt

Good grief, no seriously, five years and counting and I'm still
working on this quilt...

The good news is I have only one more row to go.

Since I'm using the potholder method to construct the blocks
there is no need for quilting. 

The design is an adaptation by Frances Quinn of Hoopla Patterns 
with the New England Quilt Museum staff as pattern consultants.
