I have been working on the quilt along with Lori, of Humble quilt. My blocks are in progress, so they are rumpled and not pressed yet, but I am loving them anyway! I have been making them my own...and was particularly fond of making the Liberty block my own. I was privileged to travel and see the actual Liberty bell. I was amazed to find that it was actually forged in 1752...24 years before America started the Revolutionary War, and won our freedom. That is vision, you know? People didn't live long back then...so some patriots that were alive then, were not when the war started, or ended. The first bell cracked upon the first ringing, according to my research, and was recast. The bell developed a fatal split, and I have embroidered that in place. On the bell was written,
Still lots of applique to go, but here is where I am so far, this week.
Quote of the day!
"You are remembered for the rules you break!"
So maybe we all need to be a rebel once in a while, like those rebels of long ago, who at long odds, won our freedom!
Have a super day,
