Peace: Liberty edition

Prior to making my Peace, Boston flag, I had basted my teeny 1/2" Liberty hexies together into a peace sign for my new spring jacket. After buying the jacket on impulse from a shop window display, I was surprised to see that every second woman in Vancouver is wearing a similar one - jeez.

Now mine is a little different.

These tiny hexies are the last of my Liberty scraps from last year's challenge by The Organic Stitch Co when I made this and these. Jo's got a 20% off sale on her ENTIRE shop, so I've re-stocked charm squares in the hopes of making the sweet spool quilt from Alexia's book Liberty Love.  Yardage purchases will have to wait until I hit Old Blighty in person in July. I want to have a proper fondle before I plunk down big coin on that tana lawn! Jo's got a new mini charm package - fifty different 2 1/2" squares for under $12. It's the perfect snack pack for someone looking to dabble in Liberty and her shipping to Canada is super reasonable.

 To Boston with Love UPDATE: An exciting event/venue opportunity in Boston means our flags have to be there earlier:  if you want your flag(s) to hang in the opening, they need to be in Boston by May 21st.  Flags arriving after that date can still be added. See VMQG site for details. Take an hour this evening and make a flag to be a part of this super exciting modern quilt guild movement!

Love the tiny hexies!

We gave all our FVMQG flags to Amy last night! It's such a great idea we're honored to be apart of it!
