BQF: liberty and justice and whatnot {roygbiv}

As I'm at a real risk of oversharing this one (...again), I'll try to keep this post brief. 

My first entry into the Spring 2014 Blogger's Quilt Festival? "Liberty (of London) and Justice for All."

For reasons that are likely already apparent to my followers, I'm entering this quilt in the ROYGBIV category. 

And for those of you who are new around these parts, I've assembled a compilation of sorts with you in mind :) 

You can find out more about my process in these (teaser) posts:
*something old...
*something new.
*something borrowed... (which, incidentally, didn't make the cut for the DWR challenge quilt)
*something hued.

...And then there's the post-finish hooplah:
*liberty (of london) and justice for all (if you click through only one of these links, make it THIS one)
*oh dear, what to do with these diamond wedding ring remnants? (asked and answered:  the king version is back in play and in the works!)
* way.
* modern patchwork(!)

And that's not even counting my experimentation in tiny piecing last summer...  (See why I'm reluctant to get into too much detail here?!)
*diamond dresden
*tiny-ness take tw:  round vs. square? (spoiler alert:  "round" wins)

And that (I think/hope!) just about does it.  Thanks for stopping by, and please take a look around the other categories in the show!

While you're off doing that, I'll be trying to decide which one to enter next :o)  ScrappyOriginal designMini?  Help!

  2. My goodness, your quilts are beautiful! I'm visiting from the AMB blog tour-just snooping around and saying hello. I'm am thrilled to see your work and can't wait till your license plate debuts. Love your work!

  3. I don't think you could ever overshare this one. Not only is the piecing and design gorgeous, but the message behind it too. :D I would go with your sweet as honey quilt, its one of my favorites. :D And it's one of the most original designs I've seen in awhile.

  4. I'll just say that i'm glad i'm not entering in the ROYGBIV category this time.

  9. It's brilliant (pun intended) that you decided to put the diamonds in the intersections of your wedding rings. I'm sure countless hours went into this beauty.

  10. Love how this turned out, love the message, love the gradient, love love love love...

  11. Entering this is like bringing a tank to a butter knife fight, y'know. ;) Although I'm not sad for more excuses to see and love this quilt!! So beautiful, and of course I adore the message behind it as well.
