SWEET LAND OF LIBERTY UPDATE

Another blogger is working on "Sweet Land of Liberty" which is a pattern set by Cheri.  It inspired me to find my UFO and make two more blocks for it.  Making the school house style block completed a row and I was able to sew two rows together.
The lower left block is a substitution that I made using a Jan Patek block.  I still need to add a word on the upper right corner but the word goes over part of the border.  That will have to wait.

I then made the Victory Basket block that is in a lower section of the quilt.  I am doing needle turn applique but the word is done in wool.
There are still many blocks to make.  I am going to make an effort to keep going on this project so that the top will be done in the next couple months.

Things are quiet here so I am going to head for my favorite chair to do some stitching and watch television.  I hope you have time to do the same.

  8. Wonderful quilt and I love the fabrics you used in your block. I tend to go to wool for lettering, makes it easier.

  14. Ahhh... you are inspiring me! I hauled it out a few weeks back, looked at it, and closed it back up again. I am just so intimidated. Just need to START and do one thing at a time.
