Welcome to my quilting blog! My combined love of sewing and a degree in art brought me to quilting 25+ years ago. I love all the various styles quilting encompasses - art quilts, traditional, woolwork, etc. I have designed my own art quilts and patterns and also love traditional designs (especially needle-turn applique!) So come along on my journey and let's see what quilts we can create.

My Liberated Life!
Well... at least my liberated QUILT life. LOL
So... if I have had so much fun making the Liberated Star blocks... you had to know that it wouldn't be long before I branched out to other patterns. :-)
Here are my liberated geese. Aren't they fun! I decided to stick with a gray background for each of the triangle blocks. I really wanted to showcase the bright fabrics.
I had so much fun in my studio on Sunday creating these - gleefully cutting into my contemporary fabrics and selecting backgrounds from my small stash of grays. Then I hit a dilemma. How should I put the rows together? I thought I knew what I wanted.... but <gasp> when I stepped back from my design wall, I wasn't so convinced.
I thought... "maybe I should just try reversing the row in the middle....." Hmmmm, still not convinced.
Of course, I told myself, "you can always move the rows around to a different order....." Hmmm.. more pondering.
My husband came downstairs and I recruited his opinion... with the various options. <more pondering.....>
So I am putting it out there to any of you that might have an opinion. 1, 2 or 3? I would appreciate any feedback you have... or maybe a whole new suggestion! It's fun to experiment, so let me know what you think. I don't even want to explore the border/no border option yet on this little quilt! LOL
