My mom and I are going up to Michigan on a quilt retreat with Gwen Marston next month. Pretty awesome, huh? Well, the only snag in this plan is that my mom is not a free piecing, devil may care quilter like I am. Every time we get together I want to show her how to be a Liberated quilter, or how I piece and quilt but too many other things are going on so we never have the time. I gave her the book Liberated Quilting 2 (I have book 1 and book 2....well I actually have most of Gwen Marston's books.) but my mom still does not "get it". Soooooo here I am. I am going to actually SHOW my mom how I do it. You guys are more than welcome to play along too.
My plan is to take 7 fairly simple fabrics make 6 different types of blocks (6 times) and in the end I will have a quilt. Hopefully my mom will too. The blocks are going to finish at 6 inches. So...go choose your fabrics and I will show you how to make the first block. I am going to start with my favorite block....the Log Cabin. The Liberated Log Cabin.
