The Emily Munroe Quilt...Progress

 
Two more wool blocks completed for my Emily Munroe quilt.

 
These are the last two blocks in this row that use such vivid reds. The next two blocks use more pink and salmon shades for the wool flowers.



A photo of the entire quilt courtesy of the New England Quilt Museum.  I've been taken with the block of the horses and tree in the third row so I started that last night.  Fun block with all the yarn couching for the tree branches.  The black horses are stitched with crude contrasting wool stitches to make them primitive.  I will show them on another post.

I love that rabbit photo too from the last post.  Won't tell you how long I had to stand out there to capture that one shot and how very, very cold it was.  Thanks for the comments.

  7. This is going to be such a gorgeous quilt, very special, love to see your horse block. I can imagine that taking those animal pictures involves a lot of waiting, a lot of patience. We only see the finished product, which is always wonderful.
