Decided not to go with the birds or sunbonnet Sue, even though they are very cute. I am planning on giving this quilt to a man.
I can’t decide which of the three Liberty rows I like the best. The first row with the flag takes up the empty space to the right of the word Liberty but I think there are too many flags in that area. I love that it is simple and not busy though.
The second row has just stars, but seems too busy for me. I took away a lot of stars but then it seemed too empty and needed something more.
The last row I am still not happy with, it seems too busy also. I plan on adding flying geese throughout the quilt. They do not necessarily need to be in this row though.
I am also starting to think of the row beneath the Liberty row. I think I may need some blank space. For the row beneath the Liberty row, I was thinking of adding USA to the right hand side, and just having a checkerboard or maybe stripes across the rest of the row.
Any suggestions on improving these two rows? I have not permanently attached anything, so everything can be moved around.
I am very excited to start a new quilt. I would not let myself start a new quilt until I finished some older ones (12 older ones :( ). This is the first new quilt I started in 2 years! I couldn’t pass up the opportunity of a quilt a long and such a great one at that! I am loving all the different interpretations of the flags and stars. Thanks for the opportunity Deana!
