It’s time to show you the progress I have been making on the Sweet Land of Liberty quilt. The blocks have all been sewn into rows and all the rows are sewn together! This is the quilt top so far pinned sideways on two of my design walls. I’m loving it! There are about 90 different blues and over 100 different reds.
For the pressing when sewing the sashing blocks to the cornerstones, I decided to press away from the sashing and towards the cornerstones. This is the wrong side of a sashing row section showing the pressing.
I’m also pressing away from the sashing and towards the blocks when sewing together the block rows. This is the wrong side of a block row section showing the pressing.
I do love this quilt and the sashing I chose for it, which of course starts me thinking about other main blocks I could use with the same sashing treatment. For a simpler and faster block you could just select some wonderful large scale fabric and add the connecting corners in the same manner so you still have those planned leftover half square triangles. Layer cakes (those 10″ squares) would be a great choice for these blocks since you could trim away just 1/2″ for the needed size of 9 1/2″.
Of course this quilt is a great use of 5″ squares!
