I finished my Liberty of London Quilt!

This is huge!!! 

In 2006 my daughter and her husband moved to London, taking our only two grandchildren, ages 1 and 3.  To console myself, I decided to keep a daily travel sketchbook during our many visits, and to make a quilt for myself using only scraps of Liberty of London Lawn print fabrics that I had.  I was finishing a wedding quilt for one of my sons' wedding, and then had a new baby quilt to finish for our grandson who was born prematurely in London.  I like to hand piece and hand quilt - and because I made 5 more grandchildren baby quilts over the next few years, my "Liberty" Quilt was perpetually abandoned. 

Six of our grandchildren were here overnight Sunday and when I told them it was started in 2006 and IT WAS FINALLY FINISHED, my 11 year old grandson reminded me that the quilt was already as old as he is!
