|Liberty granny square|
I'm hoping to soak up some post Olympics euphoria.
So I suddenly have quite a lot to do before I leave and it's not sewing weather! Having said that, I ignored my to do list, and whipped up a super size granny square. A few weeks ago I started collecting Ali's Liberty tana lawn charm packs from her folksy shop here as ever since I made this quilt I have wanted to make a big sumptuous Liberty quilt. I have quite a few of the 5'' packs now and one 4" pack. Using some 4'' squares and some beautiful Irish linen, which lovely Karen sent me, I made this mini quilt top. It measures 18" and really is very pretty. Much prettier in real life.
I'm hoping that if I can get it finished in time, I shall take it with me for a friend.
Thank you for all your clever suggestions about my hexies, and for your kind donations of fabric! If I didn't got back to you it's because you are a no-reply blogger so if you are still interested please email me!
I've decided to keep to the original palette of aqua, orange and gray. I had a good root through my scrap bins and managed to find quite a bit of fabric. Sometimes it's been a loose interpretation of aqua but that will add interest hopefully. I think I'm going to arrange them in abstract clumps on a background of perhaps some crosshatch sketch fabric. What do you think?
I haven't forgotten about the giveaway. I shall announce it once I'm back in England and it will be a glad to be back pre-birthday late 300 followers giveaway!
