Squares and scraps

As we've been going forward I've been consulting with the Liberated Quiltmaking book. I love the notion of sewing scraps together & you can see that I kind of went nuts doing it. I started off with the square within a square using the hand cut square for a less severe look. Then, I needed spacers which is when I really got into the scrap business.

I had thought that just adding onto one side would look ok, but I was mistaken and so put more scraps on the other side for balance. I think the next round should help unify this, or I hope so!

I am utterly inspired by this blog!

Am I the Slowest one?

Round 2 Triangles Finished and I displayed the piece at a local art show. So squares next? perhaps I'll be faster with this round, thank-you for the inspiration.

Almost Finished

I thought I'd have my RR #1 quilt all hand quilted by the end of the winter, but it's not going to happen. Since the RR #2 is about to begin, it's time that I posted a photo of the almost finished 60" x 70" liberated quilt.

Do you see the hand in the left corner? I quilt around the shape of my hand on all but my small wall quilts.
I'm quilting with embroidery thread, making up easy quilting designs as I go along.

Thanks for a fun experience with the Round Robin!

Much better...

I took the left and upper border apart and added some dots and another border and now I like it a lot better.
I was sure the top was finished, but as I look at the photo there seems to be something missing in those green corner spaces ..
