lovely lattices in liberty {present WiP}


Thank you all so much for the great turkey tips last week!
And sewing this week? Well, I'm enjoying piecing these HST's in my quieter moments during all the Xmas buildup & fuss! There's something rather soothing about simple repetitive chain piecing, with all those pretty small scale Liberties and mixing up all the soft colours. I spent a bit of time a while back wondering which would be the best background fabrics to use that would create good contrast {more about that later}and settled on using a Kona cream solid. I'm sort of using this idea from here, but have sewn my HST's differently. Here's a quick photo update ...



















Linking up later with WiP Wednesday 
where there's bound to be lots more quilty inspiration!


Edit: I struggle with  fmq, but I've been thinking lately that there must be ways to make straight line quilting much more creative! and this liberty quilt top is what I've decided to give it a go on, slowly stitching, just making it up as I go along!
