Shoo Fly Quilt - DQS8

Here's my quilt for the swap! :)

The picture makes it look a little wonky around the edges, but it is nice and square. I got the "Liberated Quiltmaking" by Gwen Marston book out of the library (I saw Tia had it in a photo). I love the book and the whole idea behind how she makes her quilts. This quilt is based on her Shoo Fly quilt block pattern.

    It is fantastic! I never knew I liked Shoo Fly blocks as much as I do. But I love them! Gwen really makes them fun to make, doesn't she? I am so happy you checked the book out! Isn't it fantastic?
  • Jessica and Jennifer 5y

    thanks everyone!!! I am so relieved that so many of you like it! :)
    Tia... the book is great! I've read lots of it and would love to try some of the other quilts. Although, I think it's a great lesson in mixing it up a bit and not always having everything exact.
