Liberated Wedding Ring quilt from LMS

Welcome to Friday's Quilt Feature.  This is the second time we've featured Corey from Little Miss Shabby.  Her first feature can be found here.   Today we're sharing her Liberated Wedding Ring quilt, and the fabulous news is she has the block tutorial here so you can make one yourself!  Enjoy :)


I took advantage of some sunny weather today to snap some pictures of my Liberated Wedding Ring Quilt that I finished up last week.  I finally got around to sewing together the blocks that I received from the Red & Aqua Bee over on flickr.  The fabrics are a mix of Reds/Aquas & Pinks from various lines of fabric–Dolly Dresses by Lakehouse, Moda Sweet, Kei Dots, some Lecien and a bunch of other random fabrics.  The blocks were made using my tutorial.





Since this is a smaller quilt only 3 blocks by 3 blocks, (an advantage, I suppose to being in a bee where you don’t receive all of your blocks back LOL! ) I thought it was a perfect time to practice some stippling.  I enjoy stippling on smaller projects but this is the largest quilt that I have done.





 The quilting is far from perfect but it’ll do.  Machine quilting is something that I will just need to keep practicing on.




I finished off the quilt with a fun stripey binding.




And a finished quilt!  It finishes out at about 41.5″ square.  Hopefully this will motiviate me to finish some of my other bee quilts. =)
