Welcome to my quilting journal. I enjoy expressing myself through fiber. Tiny pieces of fabric, vintage quilt blocks combined with hand stitches create my art. Keeping this journal helps me document my thoughts and progress. So glad you could join me, Happy Quilting.

LRR Round 3 Done
If there are rules in Liberated Quilt making, I think I broke them in this round. For some reason---not sure why I thought my little quilt top needed some curves. So after putting together a variety of black strips (that have a rectangle look) from my bits and pieces bin I just took a pair of scissors and made curves. Then I realized I needed to get square again---some how. After much thought, picture looking, Internet searches, I decided to just do it "Jan's Way". Well, not sure that was the right way, buy I think it worked. I will add some applique to cover mistakes if necessary I machine appliqued my quilt top on to yellow border fabric. I almost ran out of yellow border fabric, one thing about the Round Robin I find myself planning at the sewing machine and not on paper. Fun but sometimes I get lost in the process. Dogs and Dots started with a center 9 patch block that was 6 1/2" square and the quilt is now 20" square. Having fun with this little Liberated Round Robin, anxious for the next round July 22. Have a great weekend and Happy Quilting!
