And the word is.....

So are you wondering what dig and bid really was going to be? Should I show you or keep you in supense a while longer??!!! OK, yes I have a picture of the word, before trimming. It is ......

Now you may wonder why Gingerbread? Well I'll keep that little secret until tomorrow!


I also worked on some more liberated blocks this weekend. I've got quite a little collection going! I would have had more done, but I wouldn't have been able to fit them on my little flannel board anyway! Plus I really wanted to work on Gingerbread! So for now this is what I have. Can you tell I'm really likeing the liberated log cabins! I'll probably set these aside now for a month or so until I have time to work on the rest of the project that goes with them. But for now they can kind of sit in my mind and gel. but for sure I need to make some more stars - I like those the best, well second to the liberated log cabins!

I can hardly wait to see what you're doing with "gingerbread" - those letters are darling.

Can't wait to see Gingerbread develop! And I love the liberated blocks, too! The black looks great with those colors.

Libby said...

The suspense mounts .... I'm loving the blocks and will definitely stay tuned.

doing the background for the liberated pieces in black really makes them "pop". They're looking great.

(Tried to comment this morning, but blogger would have nothing of it! Let's try again.)

I LOVE the liberated blocks! Can't wait to see more of them and I'm anxiously awaiting the project that has "Gingerbread" in it!

The liberated blocks are great! I love doing those stars, too, but I haven't tried the log cabins. It's almost like crazy quilting! Just gingerbread on the quilt. =)

You know, I like the wonky blocks and letters and stuff... but I still think I'm personally more satisfied with traditional piecing.

I saw one wonky little quilt online, title was, "where's my bifocals?" lol

Hi, Dawn !

I just had a (quick) look at your blog and I just love it ! I will certainly come back very soon, when I'm finished with unpacking from vacation..... I'm sure I'm going to learn a lot of quilting tips with you !
Please, visit my blog, if you wish, I'll be delighted.

Kind regards and friendship threads from NADINE in Belgium.

You've got me almost convinced to play hooky from working today...and liberate myself!!! Oh!!! Those are adorable!!!

Bad Dawn. (Bad Darcie.)

OK. Maybe the liberating will have to wait for me...but perhaps it can be my "payment" for working on this excruciatingly huge quilt. (Details later....)

Gingerbread! Too cute! I can't wait to see what you've got up your sleeve! Don't keep me waiting too long now.

Hi Dawn, Your liberated blocks look great, especially the maverick stars, and i LOVE your Gingerbread. Look forward to seeing what you do with it :-)

Thanks for posting that pic link, a lovely quilt, and a very adaptable style.
