Linda’s Liberated Garden

Posted by on January 17, 2012 in show and tell | 5 comments

These are photos of the completed quilt that I made with last january’s liberated stacks (or a portion of them). Because of their bright colors and some floral elements, they struck me as being a garden path, so I used some Kaffe Fassett and other large florals to make snowballs, and then surrounded the whole thing with some Michael Miller fern fabric. The very nice quilting was done by Maria Davis. Thank you fellow Block Lotto participants for the beautiful blocks. The backing is K Fassett Millefiori, which means thousand flowers (the Venetian glass technique). I love this fabric. Our local guild show this year has a them of “quilts in bloom” so I am taking the liberty of entering the quilt in the group category; I don’t expect any ribbons, but our show chair encouraged the entry of some easier quilts and I think it’s good to show off some liberated quilting too.
I’m keeping this one!
Edited by Sophie to add Linda’s name to title (so we remember who made it) and to add a “thumbnail” for the front page slider and the Gallery.


  1. Very pretty it will be worth putting in the show

  2. I love your idea of setting it with snowballs. I'm sure it may inspire others to make this block when they see it in the quilt show. Kathie L in Allentown

  3. very nice! good luck with the show!

  4. Love the two different shapes together. Good luck with the show.

  5. I love this quilt, too, and can't wait to see it hanging in the Dallas show. Have you considered entering it for the "Modern quilts" exhibit that will be in Houston this year?
