Libertyville Comes Home
Libertyville was a BOM in the Kansas City Star last year. It was designed by Terry Thompson. It is a mix of pieced and applique blocks. It was so-o-o much fun to work on and I was antsy each month waiting for the new installment to come! I love Terry's designs. They always have an authenticity about them. She and Barbara Brackman are from the Midwest and have contributed a great deal to my knowledge about antique and historical quilts. I finished the top several months ago and sent it to the longarmer in February. Due to her illness and hospitalization, I just got it back today. I had forgotten some of the details about it. I know that I made the binding at the same time I finished the top, but darned if I can find it!!! Oh well, I won't get it bound till we get back from Colorado next week anyway! I DO know where the label is! Rocky approves; Natasha (on the hearth) is still considering... I am trying to upload closeups of the corner blocks but Blogger is playing hard to get. Well, I'll try again later...
