Peek-A-Boo

Young Marmots that live just below the house in the rocks.  They hibernate during the Winter.

Row One of The Emily Munroe Quilt

 
Definitely a labor love for me to reproduce this quilt, calms the mind and calms the soul to work on a quilt with so much history.

 
I have to purposely make my stitches crude and irregular to reflect the primitive look.

 
A closer look from the antique quilt of those blocks.
 
My heart aches at the death of Robin Williams...

The Emily Munroe Quilt Continues

 
This block turned out to be quite unique with that touch of blue on those elegant flowers.

 
I met Frances Quinn online, the designer of the patterns from Hoopla, and she was tickled to see that I was reproducing the quilt with her patterns.  She has pictures on her website of my work and others who are working on this quilt.
 
 
Thanks so much for the comments on the Ground Squirrel.  Glad we could give you all a giggle.

Another Block Completed...The Emily Munroe Quilt

 
I love the red wools in this block on the army green wool background.  The center of the flowers are overstitched with crude stitches with beige wool thread for texture.
 
 
I'm liking how this first row is coming together.
