16 patch and embroidery progress, handed off DWR quilt

I got a bit more quilted on the 16 patch quilt. I haven't bothered to figure out yet my progress by percentage done; I don't have enough done to bother, but maybe by Monday I will have taken the time to figure that out.

For the embroidery, I have all the branches, stems, and leaves done in that color of green. I am now working on another green to fill in all of those leaves in that shade of green.

Last night the lady came over to get the DWR quilt. We kept our social distance so I set up a small table in the garage so she could just walk up and get it. She looked at it, flipped back one of the corners and said "this fabric here, my grandma made me a dress and a dress for my doll out of this fabric." She said she was going to cry she was so happy with the quilt. Whew! Then she brought me a token of her appreciation. Look at the lovely wrapping!

Inside was a cute piece of Staub cast iron! I have always wanted a piece of Staub! I can't wait to get a little chicken and cook it in this pot.

I am taking a day of vacation tomorrow so I will check back on Monday. Have a great weekend!

Oh, what a happy day giving the quilt back to the owner. I have never heard of Staub so I'll wait to see how you use it.
