A little progress at last!

I'm not sure what step I'm up to, but I've had fun today playing with my round robin. This is my first attempt at liberated letters and I'm quite happy with them. Thanks Nancie for all the hints I found in your previous posts about this.

I'm thinking of filling the gap under the letters with strings and then maybe making a border all round with the green batik. Then I'll face the curves!

Working on Phase 6

Finished picture after binding is completed.  Not much difference in the picture.  10/10/11
9/14  Quilting completed and ready for binding.

I've been slowly progressing towards a finish. My sis called the other day and needed a quilt for a wedding gift and wanted one of mine.  So, we decided on my Liberated Challenge quilt.  I've been very frustrated with making feathers.  They just looked too rounded or tight or something.  I've studied Patsy Thompson's feathers and I've got a DVD by the Pajama Quilter.  I've been practicing since then.  I won't show you my garbage can of practices but I hit on what my troubles may have stemmed from.  I was making my "loops" from the top.  When I started them from the bottom and worked up, they became more the style I was working towards.  Here's a sample of my practice next to my actual work on the quilt. 

And then a close-up of the actual quilt.

It may be a couple of days before I can work on the completion of my quilt, but with someone expecting it.  I'll get it done.  Maybe even next week!

LibRR1 Round 6: Ready to Use or Give Away

Change your project into a quilt!  Make the sandwich and join it together and close it up!

Let us know what is going to happen to your project once it is completed!

Take pictures and share!

Round 6 is added so you can show your project after it's quilted, bound, and ready to use or give away!

(I misread the notes - this was supposed to be the ending step after embellishing and finishing up - June)
