Hi everyone, I'm Sharon from Blaine, WA. You can't be any further NW than
Blaine, WA It's a small town on the ocean and also on the Canadian border. We are expecting a lot of Olympic traffic this month, as Vancouver BC is just across from us.
As for this challenge, I'm so excited to be participating and quilting along with everyone. There are some familiar bloggers here, and I look forward to seeing everyone's work. First off, I'm NOT a liberated quilter, but I want to be. I've got Gwens new book, and many older books she and Joe have written on Amish quilts and hand quilting. I've also got Jean Wells new book and it too, is very liberated. Click here and here for two posts from her presentation at our guild.
I've only tried Gwens stars (made 5) and have them in a small wall hanging in my studio.
My inspiration is going to be Bars. I'm thinking "stars and bars" and my goal is to make several bars of liberated stars and several bars of liberated piecing. And this is what I'd like to use.
Does our top have to be quilted and bound by the June time line? or just pieced?
