200 Quilts

Liberty USA Mini Quilt, 2


I’ve made some progress by getting the first (left) side sewn down.  liberty-usa_first-side-sewn1

It’s pretty wonky, but I’m leaving it as a testament to this wonky time in my life.

In my pain-killer-addled brain the day I mapped this out, I resorted to doing the freezer paper appliqué method, so everything looks pretty 3D-ish when laid out.  In hindsight, I probably should have done it differently, but the quilt will still get done this way.  Better to move forward, than to take too many steps back.

  1. Well, I’m loving it! Their is almost a folk-art air about it thanks to your “wonkiness”. And clearly it will be something you remember forever, a marker for this chapter.

  2. Looks good to me! I hope you have a speedy recovery. I know how frustrating injuries can be. I am still doing PT with my ankle. (Fallen arch).

  3. I think the fact that you are able to work on it is the important part. The wonkiness adds to the charm.

  4. As Cindy said, the wonkiness adds to the charm! It’s a lovely quilt! And I believe, there is recovery in every stitch!

  5. I think you are doing a great job on it. A little imperfection is good for our humility too!!! Glad that you didn’t get those flooding rains in your area. It’s been fun, but I am ready for some days of sunshine here. How about you?

  6. I think it’s great – has a primitive feel to it but in different colors. Prayers being said for you, Elizabeth.
