The Emily Munroe Quilt

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...

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.

Hello Rabbit...


Whatcha got there...

A carrot...

A big carrot...
A carrot that I should have cut into
smaller pieces judging from her look.

A Charity Quilt...

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.

A Fawn...

A Mule Deer and her fawn behind the house.

The fawn has an injury to her neck.
Looking pretty...


Watching me, I'm very far away...


and jumping so I don't think the injury was holding her back.
