It's time to show my progress on the Sweet Land of Liberty quilt by Cheri Payne. So here it is. . .
I changed the 'Lady Liberty' block. I used another pattern by Cheri Payne and reduced it's size. I appliqued the word "give" because the statue of Liberty always reminds me of the sonnet by Emma Lazarus called The New Colossus.
It ends with these lines;
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door."
I have the economy blocks done but not the flying geese. I'll have to add those in next months update.
Interesting to be talking about this with the South Americans at our southern borders right now
seeking refuge. They are "huddled masses yearning to breathe free" I worry about them. . .
Last Sunday above and yesterday below. It's almost in full bloom. Yippee!
