Lady Liberty Embroidered Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? In my copy of the book some of the trimming measurements are incorrect. I was proud to 'catch' them before I actually cut the pieces - realizing things weren't adding up! People may assume because the embroidery machine is doing the quilting that there is no 'work' in making this quilt but it does take some thought, creativity, and skill to make and assemble the project. It was a lot of fun! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take things one step at a time. Definitely use a design wall or lay out the blocks on a table to get the best contrast between blocks. I used a black & white photo to check values and it helped point out areas to change. I used what little Batik fabric I had on hand & scraps to complete the whole quilt, including off-cuts of batting so it's a great way to use up some stash!

What you will need

  • Batiks
  • embroidery thread

This looks complicated and fabulous. Was the piecing difficult? Do you think the class helped you?
a1angiem answered:
thank you so much, karrielynn! it is really not bad at all to make. i learned so much about the process from the class so that helped a LOT! I love the book, though, and there are so many fun projects to continue with what i learned.
