This special bundle includes a starter pack of wool, especially made for this quilt project. This bundle of hand-dyed wool fabric is felted and ready to be used for the delightful appliqués in the quilt. The bundle is a combination of 15 fat eighths and 16ths. They have mixed solids and textures in this collection to add to your choices! The bundle could possibly be enough for all the appliqués and you could also supplement from your stash.
This does NOT include the background wools.
This spectacular quilt
believed to have been created by Emily Munroe, in about 1865, is a
treasure. It measures approximately 59" x 68" and consists of 54, 8 1/2"
folk art blocks. Although the backgrounds of the blocks consist of
different fabrics including wool, twill, and cotton, the quilt is
basically considered a wool quilt.
This pattern has been
lovingly created by Froncie who has isolated every block in the quilt,
giving each its own page. The original stitches are described, many of
which can be clearly seen in the color picture shown of the actual
block. In addition, each block has its own page of line drawings to be
used as templates.
Typical of Froncie's patterns, it also
includes the history and instructions - including graphics of various
stitches to use - printed on beautiful parchment paper. Detail close-up
pictures and a laminated Color Chart are also part of the pattern. In
addition, an adorable "needle minder" and "thread keep" (threads shown
for display only) are added to make this historic pattern even more
unique. Packaged beautifully in a ribboned box to hold both the pattern
and your collection of fabrics, Froncie's two-year project is finally
complete and will be a beautiful addition to your historic collection of
patterns. Under license of the New England Quilt Museum
