Give Me Liberty
I can see that the Cows will be a flimsy within the week. While I'd thought of making a second Cow-ish quilt with the remaining blocks, Julie wisely suggested that I made my quilt a two-sided Cow Project and I think she's right. It's not a great idea to divide a herd. So I'll be moving the heifers into place and trying to come up with a plan for them.
I'm thinking of putting another project into the rotation. Somewhere, somehow, I received a small packet of Liberty of London tana lawn scraps. I fondled them so much that I'm surprised they aren't shredded. They I managed to get some more. And some more. And am thinking of getting a few more. I haven't wanted to do anything with them out of fear of making some awful mistake. But just the other day, out of the blue, I knew what I want to do with them: Cut them into squares, prolly 2", and just alternate them, checkerboard fashion, with the background. I'd picked up some lovely pinot noir color soft cotton to go with them, whatever I decided to do. This could be a nice Leader-Ender project . . . .
The photo above isn't my scraps, though it bears a strong resemblance. It is from the internet. Did you know there are several fine places on Etsy where Liberty scraps can be found?
