    "Liberated" Barn for DQ Swap

    I've been experimenting in "liberated" piecing. It takes a little foresight to put one together but this was fun. Only wish I would've used a little more contrast in windmill and sky. This should be inName:  003.JPG

    I think it's adorable, the windmill blades seem to be rotating.

    That is absolutely wonderful ... a very realistic funky farm scene! You got the old windmill just right (yes OK, a little more contrast would been nice). And your detailing of the birds, grass?/hay? growing up above the fabric, and straw hanging out of the mow is fantastic.

    I'm sure in your farm community this will be a hit. Is it heading to the school fundraiser too? or?

    Can you say "fabric paints" or perhaps markers? You can add some shadow and contour to the windmill to make it pop out a bit. Still, it's pretty just the way it is.

    The lightness of the windmill blades makes it look like motion. Good job.

    Thanks you for the kind words. This is a stretch for me; my third liberated project. I took pictures as I went through the process.
    QuiltE--no this is for the doll quilt swap here on board; not sure how "liberated" my little community is--lol
    Cheshirecatquilter--I really like your idea, but I am not very steady with a pen or paint brush. Whenever I try to touch something up like you suggest, I just mess it up and find it best to leave it be. Otherwise I would take the suggestion and run with it.
    CotUninverse--liberated quilting is a free style approach to piecing. Think "Gee's Bend" quilts. Gwen Marston is a pioneer in it applying it to modern day quilting. Accurate cutting and sewing are not the norm!

    Gladie; I love it!! I really like Gwen Marston designs and made a liberated flower pot quilt for a niece of mine. It's fun.

    Great job! As usual. This inspires me to try some 'liberation' also.
    Reading, cooking, sewing in retirement! Heaven!
