Hi #igquiltfest and @amyscreativeside. I have a whole stack of quilttops ready for this category next year once I get them quilted (🙄) but this recent finish was probably in the works for two years. It’s a color study of sorts, examining contrast, value and grayscale equivalents. It’s also a commentary. I’ve named it Shadow Liberty 🗽 to highlight the dichotomy between the liberty experienced by our country’s most fortunate and by those less blessed. #newyorkbeautyquilt#ladylibertyquilt#colorandgrayscale#colorandgray#slbphilly
This is a block from the "Lady Liberty Wears Tanya Whelan" quilt I have been working on. Recently I got one of @cottagecouturefabrics bundles of @tanyawhelanddesigns and it's perfect for my favorite Lady Liberty block! Pat sells bundles that have enough fabric So fun! #cottagecouturefabrics#tanyawhelandesigns#ladylibertyquilt
Lady Liberty plays with Flower Sugar in this block. I have no yardage of Flower Sugar fabric by @lecien_fabrics. I only have scraps that were gifted to me but I try to work them in whenever I can. It has been one of my long-term favorites. #ladylibertyquilt#lecien#flowersugar#lecienfabric
This is the first Lady Liberty quilt I made several years ago. It has many of my favorite colors but i didn't add red. Instead, I added black and white. I just think this block looks great in any color combination. #ladylibertyquilt#paperpiecing#scrappyquilt#quilts
Another #ladylibertyquilt block. I'm using some of my batiks mixed in with prints. The batiks I have are gorgeous (thanks for adding to them Nettie Mae) but how many #batik only quilts will I make? Yep...mixing it up from now on! 💟
Another #ladylibertyquilt block before I go to bed. See the darker aqua fabric? I bought a bolt of that fabric in 1970. It is 36 inches wide. I've added some of it to almost every quilt ! have made since then. That's 46 year old fabric! 💟
Another #ladylibertyquilt block.This quilt will have all my favorite colors plus black and white. 💟 Have to have some happy sewing because my tooth still hurts even thought I am still on antibiotics. Wish it would work already. Going to make my Monday great anyway by golly. Hope yours is great too!
