meet liberty

its finished! my liberty of london quilt. and i love it so. it is 100% girl. it should be noted that i did not like the color pink until i was well into my thirties. it is currently living on the bed in our guest room. this bed belonged to my great grandparents. my mom had it refinished and gave it to me, there is also a matching dresser. my great grandmother was quite the seamstress, so i think she would be quite proud of me. ( she was a wallace, the same wallace's that chace was named after).

i actually assembled and attached the binding on this quilt. it was not nearly as difficult as i thought it would be and it only took me two days to do. doing this step myself saves me lots of money, which means i can make more quilts. christina did a fabulous job with the quilting. she is so fast with her turn around. i hope to meet her someday.

speaking of new quilts, i received fabric yesterday for a new project. i think it is going to be a good one. i will give you a hint, it involves breathing new life into something 37 years old.


  1. Oh...Lucinda...this is breath beautiful...and you are right ....the Wallace women would be and are proud....xoxo

  2. I love this quilt - that little row of binding just sets it off. The quilting looks fabulous too. I'm so glad to see Nonnie's bed again - you know I have Poppa's. I can't tell you how many times I changed the sheets. And
    she had to approve of the "hospital" corners, or I had to do them again!
    Your dresser is not forgotten...


  3. oh my goodness. breathtaking. really, really fabulous. i'd love to be able to quilt like that.

  4. beautiful! Wonderful job, love the pinks

  5. Love it!!! It looks wonderful with the antique bed too!
