Hello! I've just finished this one in the nick of time for this week's installment of 50 States Stitching quilt project. This week is Pennsylvania, so we've been given a fun Liberty Bell motif to stitch up. The great thing about this project (aside from making this great quilt) is learning something new each week, I find myself googling the design to find out more. I didn't realise the bell was cast at the Whitechapel Foundry in East London, but the clapper ball cracked the bell on it's first use!? eek! I wonder if the bell maker back in London got a telling off!?
Fabric used: Red Pezzy Beans, Ducks In A Row
I've always wanted to visit Philadelphia ever since I worked for Anthropologie in London a few years back - the headquarters were based in Philly so some of my friends in the office would visit quite often. Of course, it always sounded amazing - very cool with tons of quirky antique shops, flea markets, nice places to eat and historic architecture. Some day ... but for now this motif will have to suffice! xo
