Sweet Land of Liberty- September

Are you ready???

 This is what we will be working on this month, plus a little bit more if you have time..... 
 For this block you will cut the center background 10"x11 1/2",  You will also cut from background and red,  Two (2) 10"x1 1/2" strip, Two (2) 11 1/2"x 1 1/2". The half square triangles in the corner finish at 2". Assemble the block, then applique the angel. Overall this block measures 15 1/2"x 131/2" unfinished.
Background for this block is cut 7"x12 1/2". 

 This block background needs to be cut 7 1/2" square.
The bird int eh urn needs to be cut 12 1/2"x 10"

I used the flying geese I had made previously but I'm going to need to make more, so you may as well make them here. These will measure 2 1/2"x4 1/2" unfinished.

Here are Denise's lovely blocks!

Then you will lay them out and sew together similar to this:
I had to add a strip to the right side of the triple stars. Do what you need to do to get all 3 rows the same size. I had to trim a little of the log cabin bird block and the top of the oak leaf. 

I needed to add a strip on the right to the top 2 rows to make them the same size as the bottom. Again, Cheri says "add a strip, or trim when needed" This is what will make each quilt unique!

 Believe it or not, these two sections measured the same! 
 I measured this row...
 And the upper portion that we have completed and they were 6" difference. 
 Ah, yes, 2" finished flying geese on the left side
And 4" finished economy patches on the right side should do the trick! 
If you can get that part done (you should already have them made from a few months ago) and attached you'll be ready to finish your quilt top next month!

Whoop! Whoop! Whoop!


  1. These are so fun! Tempted - not tempted;)

  2. These are wonderful, prim yet intricate! I'd turn that churn dash angel right side up, lady liberty from last month too! I'm learning a lot, hope to start the big Cheri Xmas quilt in December...


  3. I better get busy! Need to rev up my machine and my brain. Your top is assembled nicely.

  4. It's been so much fun to follow along watching. Now that I'm not in school, I plan to start this in October, just as you all are finishing, but that's okay. You've laid down a fine trail.

  5. fun blocks. Love the angels! happy stitching

  6. Hi Lori! I just wanted to let you know that I have finally started making this quilt. I don't have the pattern but will see what I can do with following along. I've already made a few blocks and plan to get this month's blocks done before going back to do any more past blocks.
