I met Linda in person just about a month ago on my big trip to Paducah with Laura. Linda is a master of organizing a huge group of women and making everything run smoothly and so we all have fun! It was the best trip with a group of women I've ever had! And I didn't really know anyone but Laura - who I had only known for years online but not in person!
The pictures I'm showing you today are of my Liberated Log Cabins from the class I took with Gwen Marston this winter! I'm finally taking the time to quilt it! The white lines are chalk lines and disolvable thread. Those areas are going to be trapunto'd. I know you only need to really sew on the outside of the shapes, but the fabric is so dark and I was afraid the chalk lines would rub off - which they are - so I decided a little extra money for stitching the whole design with the wash-away thread, and the extra time would be well worth the investment.
I'm also going to trapunto the shapes in the blocks that are the same green and one of the browns. I'm really excited about this quilt. It is really turning out fun. Not one I normally would have done, but I'm absolutely falling in love with it! And I had a great time in the class learning to be "FREE"! What a great revalation that was for me. Hope you enjoy the pics. I"ll post my progress as I go along!
