If there are rules in Liberated Quilt making, I think I broke them in this round. For some reason---not sure why I thought my little quilt top needed some curves. So after putting together a variety of black strips from my bits and pieces bin I just took a pair of scissors and made curves. Then I realized I needed to get square again---some how. After much thought, picture looking, Internet searches, I decided to just do it "Jan's Way". Well, not sure that was the right way, if applique is not a round of the future---it will be one of my things to do on this little top---need to cover some mistakes. I machine appliqued my quilt top on to yellow border fabric. I didn't think about was running out of fabric--whoops. I want this project to be strictly from my bits and pieces--well I just made it with 10" of yellow left over. Dogs and Dots started with a center 9 patch block that was 6 1/2" square and the quilt is now 20" square. Having fun with this little LRR, hope you are too.
