Sweet Land of Liberty Progress

I am very late in starting this quilt, which is a quilt-along with Lori Humble Quilts. She broke out the pattern into months, and I started on the last month so I could at least keep up with the group for the month. They are in their last month and I am in the first.

I have made almost all of the last month's blocks and a couple of other blocks. I just put them on the table - this is not the final layout.

The flag bird appliqued leaves has run off with the star from the moose bird on star vase. It may be a scandal, but I do know that fabric morals are different from people morals, so I'm not sure what to make of it.  I didn't want to mention it, but I did notice that circle block 248 had some fabric from the Sweet Land of Liberty as well as the Colonial Bricks quilt, both of which are just babes and hardly old enough to be having offspring, so it does seem suspicious.  I think that is normal and not only acceptable, but actually encouraged here on the High Road, so I don't know if blocks and block pieces running off together are all right, as long as they return on a timely basis.

Do you know what the name of this style of quilt is? I would love to know what to call this type of quilt. A Life of Plenty is similar - with folk art blocks, pieced and applique, a collage of sorts, but I imagine it has a name.

Circle Block 249

This one is a well behaved block, as far as I can tell.  The star fabric did look more blue at night and looks more purple during the day, but with the other scandals going on around here, we will let this go.

Circle Block 250

This one looks innocent, using fabric from Sweet Land of Liberty, but that cream triangle is from A Life of Plenty.

I just started working on this quilt this week!

Allie said...

Fabric morals - I'm dyin' - you are too funny!! Love all these blocks! I believe this style is called "primitive".

Lori said...

As long as they return!! LOL
Your blocks look great and have no clue what style we'd call this.

Janie said...

Great post!
Yes, Allie has it right, Primitive style.
It's fun to have a project with such personality.
I read your previous post about the tornado that went through your
town. Wow, a lot of damage happened.
I'm glad to hear you're okay!

I think that this type of quilt is famously known as a High Road Quilt!!

I love your blocks so far. You work fast. Your scandalous story is very funny. I have to follow you to see what happens. Ha.

Kate said...

Your quilt blocks have a lot more excitement going on then mine do!

Hi Shasta, that's a very interesting quilt. It was a good idea to start where all the others are at - at least you get to participate in the last month's link-up. Good luck with the rest. ps I don't think that wondering fabrics are a no-no :-)

Love the brighter colors that you are using! I'm really looking forward to see how you are progressing with this.

I love that you jumped right in regardless of what section is being worked on. You won't regret making this quilt. It has kept my interest all year long (well 9 months so far). I love the purple star. Don't change a thing.
