Thanks to everybody for all of the positive comments  Smiley
Padester and Fairieknits: Liberated quilt blocks are made without specific measurements or templates ... you have an idea of the block that you want (in this case, the house blocks) and build them up by cutting roughly the size and shape pieces that you want, and sewing them together. This creates the complete quirkiness of each block. As long as you can cut and sew a straight line, nothing else matters ... there are some awesome examples and tutorials if you do a google search ... check out Tonya's tutes: http://lazygalquilting.blogspot.com/
Ecuadoriana: here's a photo of the backing.
Because the backing has a slight pile, the stitches are barely visible on the back (there's a bit more info on my blog  Smiley)

5  House on the Hill in Quilting: Completed Projects by pickupsticks on: June 17, 2009 03:44:11 AM

I made this baby quilt with a mixture of traditionally pieced, and liberated pieced blocks (LOVE the look of the liberated houses  Smiley )... the top is machine pieced and then hand quilted onto a polar fleece backing, using embroidery thread  Smiley

6  Lincraft Blossom in Knitting: Completed Projects by pickupsticks on: November 18, 2008 02:41:57 AM

I bought 5 odd balls of Blossom from Lincraft in an amazing markdown sale (24c a ball!)
Working this basic tee top-down meant that I could just keep going until the yarn ran out...can't believe that I got a full length top for such an awesome price  Smiley
The pattern is written up on my blog

A new cardi for our new grandson-to-be!  Smiley

8  Wear this as a top....really? in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by pickupsticks on: October 16, 2008 10:57:30 PM

I bought this old McCalls (1983) pattern for a top/dress from the op-shop for 20c. I love how it turned out, but I'm thinking that it's probably more an apron/pinny than a 'wear out' top ...
... and anyhow, a girl can never have too many pinnies, right?  Grin
(there's a side view and pattern piccy on my blog  Smiley)

9  Reduce, Re-use, Recycle in Knitting: Completed Projects by pickupsticks on: April 30, 2008 04:49:16 PM

What started out as a bag full of assorted grey yarn from the Op Shop....
...ended up as a really warm jumper, in readiness for our cold Aussie winter!
It was knitted top down on size 6mm needles, following the basic raglan instructions in Barbara Walker's 'Knitting from the Top'  Smiley

10  Bad Penny in Knitting: Completed Projects by pickupsticks on: February 12, 2008 07:34:23 PM

This is my slightly modified Bad Penny by Stephanie Japel  Smiley
It has added waist shaping, no lacy increases or edges, and is more cropped than the pattern.
It was really quick and easy and I can't wait  to make more!  Smiley
