RR Center Block

I made a simple liberated shoofly, then added recut borders to give the block some movement. The borders looked dull so I pinned on some curvy strips; I'll decide if they stay after I've done a few rounds on the quilt. Now that I look at the fabrics, I think the curvy things need to be brighter and stronger.

My previous liberated quilts have gone through many changes as I worked on them, because there is no right or wrong way to do something. I like this freedom, especially when I'm working with fabrics already in my collection. This round robin will be fun!


  1. I'm commenting on my own post! My recut border really is part of my center block, honest :). I couldn't leave well enough alone, I'm afraid. Hope the addition of the "border" doesn't confuse others who join up--it's not a border, it's a block. LOL.

  2. Ha ha! The colors are really pretty - and having such detail as the center or initial block will be a great start to the quilt.

    Thank you for joining the Lib RR!
