The Emily Munroe Quilt

 
Sharing my progress on The Emily Munroe Quilt.  I love how the landscape is turning such a beautiful green with recent rain and even snow the last few days.


 The lollipop flowers have three rows of couching, but this vase has more simple couching than the previous blocks.
 

 
This textured gray is probably my favorite wool background.

Primitive Strips

 
I've been making a strip quilt using my vintage Brannock and Patek fabrics.

 
Inspired by this 1930 African American quilt from the book, The Ultimate Quilting Book by Maggie McCormick Gordon.
 
I have several more sections to add before finishing with the same type red borders.

Just a Little Bit of Wildlife

 
A joyful, spontaneous moment watching a squirrel enjoy his treat...
 
 
Happiness, just an orange slice for some.  Makes me smile.

Progress...

 
Five rows completed on The Emily Munroe Quilt.  Three more rows to go. 

 
I love how it looks from far away. For a wool quilt it's not as heavy as you would think since the blocks are small.

 
A close-up of one of the blocks.  Emily must have loved dogs.  She gives them such character with the extra detail of collars.
