Liberated Stars


For Independence Day.  This is one of the projects that I managed to nearly complete during our trip.  I really enjoyed these all over free hand fans even though I had to go through some tough seams.  I completed a tiny bit of quilting upon our return this week and got the binding on yesterday.


These stars are inspired by Gwen Marston's Liberated Quilting and the free hand fans are inspired by Lazy Gal Tonya.  Tonya's big news is that she is working on a book about her free pieced letters and it will include these free hand fans.  I really look forward to seeing that one!  I also see that Gwen is working on a new book with abstract quilts in solids.  This is right up my alley. 


I've been dreaming of the day I can retire to my sewing room for a long session of piecing with my solid scraps and my stash of solids.  I've a few more obligations to take care of and, of course, the Sisters Quilt Show next week and then I hope to have a breather and some time to work on that.

For the mean time I hope those of you in the US have a wonderful, safe Fourth of July holiday and I'll see you round the bend.
