Liberty Love

This may be my new favoritist thing of all time!!!  Ever since I finished my Spoolish quilt I've been jonesing for more ways to use my Liberty stash.  I'd had the idea for this in my head for awhile but finally got started at this year's Boston MQG retreat.  Of course once I got home it got dumped and forgotten until I decided to clean up my studio in yet another attempt to jump start my sewjo.

Once I started sewing the remaining blocks went together quickly and I was able to get them together into a top.  I was lucky to score a last minute session at Burlington Electric Quilters before I went back to work to get this one quilted.

Does anyone else totally stress out about squaring up their quilts?  This one was easy because it had a nice wide border that could just get narrower if I screwed up.

Gratuitous binding shot because it's my favorite part of the process.

  1. Pretty! The denim-like background was an inspired choice.

  2. I covet your Liberty stash. If I had one, I'd make this exact quilt, including the fabulous shot cotton in the background. Sooo good!
