A little more progress of my
Emily Munroe Quilt...
The blocks from row three have been
reconstructed using the "potholder" construction method.
The wool has been turned to the back and whipped
stitched down over the backing fabric.
I used a very thin batting to keep the
heavy applique from sagging.
This is a detail of the back from the original quilt
that Frances Quinn of Hoopla Patterns included in her pattern.
The hardest part of stitching this quilt...
lining up the squares and stitching
the wool blocks to each other by hand.
My fingers have been screaming...
Looking back at all the blocks...
only six more rows to go.
The original quilt was made approximately in 1865
by Emily Munroe and is currently owned by the
New England Quilt Museum in
