Thanks

I so appreciate all the comments about my black and white liberated quilt.  I have been very busy this week.  My son and his wife went on a cruise so we have the grandsons.  I have been able to sew a little bit but not much.  This weekend I am going to devote myself to making more liberated sawtooth and see what happens from there.  I got some more of the black from my local quilt shop,  Cottonfields.

I ordered this cool book.  I found it on some other blog and honestly I can't remember what blog.  It is a great book with tons of ideas for modern quilting.

 
I like making log cabin blocks and it seems like I am in sort of a black and white period.





















I made this little star the other day.  My aunt is really into 9 patches and stars are a great combination for 9 patches.





















A few crazy 9 patches with stars.




















One more thing,  when I got back from my first major quilt workshop with Gwen Marston I was so excited to be part of a guild.  There were several groups there from guilds and they had such a good time together.  I have been trying since then to find a group and have not found one where I feel comfortable with my liberated style.  At Cottonfields I talked to Lori about starting a group and she was very excited.  She doesn't waste any time.  We are meeting for the first time on Monday!!  I could not be more thrilled.

I decided to post my liberated top that I have been working on.. because it fit with the letter I needed to do for my A-Z challenge.

I love the crafty club I go to. It's so much fun sitting around and chatting and doing crafty stuff. I hope you have lots of fun with yours!
