Star Spangled Liberty Quilted!

The first of the two Star Spangled Liberty quilts has been quilted and the binding is in progress.  Feels great to get the to this point!  I'm dropping the second quilt off at my fabulous quilter Ronda's place today.  Aahhh...they're done!  But the work is far from being complete.  Finishing touches on the pattern and shop guides will be happening this week and then off to the proofreader to check, check and double check every little detail.  I promise more pictures when both quilts are bound.  

Thank you!  Thank you to everyone who took the time to comment to my last blog post.  It feels nice to hear from all of you, and believe me, I read each and every comment.  Loved hearing your thoughts on which fabrics, patterns and BOM programs inspire you to want to buy and or make them.  So much of what you said resonates with me, too!

These 8 comments were randomly chosen to receive the Heartspun Quilts pattern of their choice:  

Jennifer - Pam, your Star Spangled Liberty is wonderful. I feel this question is a bit hard because it can be a number of things like, color, print, design etc. I guess it's more a feeling it gives me, warms my heart, a familiar comfortable I got to have you kind of feeling: ) 

Patti - I need no spurring, I just love to buy fabric. And I have a wide range of taste. I buy more when a fabric evokes a feeling or memory. The BOM is lovely.

Jill - I buy and make what speaks to me, it's that simple I guess.
  
Gwenette - Be still my heart!!! I love anything red, white, and blue!! Your new pattern is so Americana!!!

Sunny - I love mostly old fashioned, traditional type patterns. And I love fabric. Most fabric. No rhyme nor reason to what I buy. I'm not good with BOM's because I lose interest if I can't keep working on something. And I'm on a fixed income, so if I can make something from my scraps or stash, it's all very good!!

Kathy F. - Pam, your fabrics are simply stunning. I am in awe with each new selection. It is obvious you love what you do. You inspire me. Thank you.

Aunt Bee - I love your work...but like many others, we are retired. Our income does not go up any more which is sad because our wants still do! And with MS the medical bills are sky high. Good thing I worked for a quilt store and stocked up and have a good stash. When doing a BOM I look for something different...something that I may only have to add 1 or 2 fabrics to. And this is a big one! Are the patterns offered free?  Thanks for listening and all your excellent work!


Anonymous - I love doing block of the months, it is always hard to decide which one to do, I had 3 going last year and didn't enjoy them as much so I think now I will stick to one at a time. I am not sure what draws me in, I read a lot of blogs and Instagram, sometimes it is just love at first site. This quilt is amazing, I will have to hold off on doing a block of the month so maybe I can do this one.

Please email me at Pam@HeartspunQuilts.com with your mailing address and which pattern you chose.  Thanks so much for your comments!

  5. Thank you for the picture of Liberty all quilted in those lovely loop-de-loops. I'm a firm believer in simple quilting to allow the piecing and the gorgeous fabrics to shine as it does here!
