Liberated quilting

 Last fall when I was first interested in quilting, I checked Gwen Marston's book Liberated Quilting out from the library.  I really love her quilts and ideas.  I started making little houses shown in her book and then decided to make them into a quilt for Miles.  Now let's face it, what I knew about making a quilt could be put in a thimble.  So I just made it up as I went along.  This is the result.  I backed it with fleece and tied it with crochet cotton and some buttons.  It is not just "liberated" it is down right odd.  I keep looking over my shoulder to see if the quilt Police are coming.  Lots of the fabric I got from Guinevere, my dear daughter in law and some of them were left over from the crib sheets and accessories she made when he was a baby.
