I love this. I haven't heard of liberated quitling either, so cute.

I don't quilt but I'm a big fan of those who do. Great dimension, colors and personality in this quilt, I even really like the quilting with the embroidery floss, adds a nice touch of detail. Now I just need one of these!
Wisted and This rocks!

This is a work of fiction.  All the characters in it, human and otherwise, are imaginary, excepting only certain of the fairy folk, whom it might be unwise to offend by casting doubts on their existence.  Or lack thereof.~Neil Gaiman
I love personal swaps. I crochet, sew and more!

So sweet!!! The baby who receives this will always feel at home with a quilt like this!

Can we see the backing? I'm curious how it looks.

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)
