The student who drove the farthest for my TAW class, 4 1/2 hours, stayed at the Best Western on the edge of town so she finished her second class yesterday morning. The other students will come back next Tuesday. While she sewed I decided on the center of my quilt and did more unpicking of loops.
Later in the afternoon my dryer repair man came and while he worked on it I sorted all of the small pieces of Liberty Lawn that I bought about 20 years ago. These pieces are around 6.5″ square.
Back in those days there were no die cut packs of fabrics available. Some of these are torn along one edge and cut with scissors on the other 3 sides. They are not all the same size although the label said 6.5″ squares.
There was also a little bag of approximately 3″ squares. Some of them are the same prints as the larger squares so I think I got them all from the same store.
There was also a little package of scraps, anywhere from just under 2″ wide to almost 4″ wide.
Near the end of the time that this store carried the Liberty Lawns there was a regular quilting weight fabric about 54″ wide. All of these 3″ pieces are that weight. I have 3 yardage pieces that I bought of it at that time too.
These are my duplicate pieces.
I’m wondering if there is anyone reading who has a more current collection of the Liberty Lawn that would like to trade some pieces with me. The fabrics in the top 2 rows are about 20 years old. I’m not sure of the time period of the 3 in the bottom row..I think I have found 2 trade partners now. Thanks everyone!!!
