I don't even want to tell you how many pieces ended up in the trash before I ended up with something presentable. If you would like to play along, you can get all the information at the Block lotto Blog.
So while I'm on the subject of liberated block making, let me show you the 6 blocks I received from the bee I joined a few months ago. I requested my blocks to be pink, red and a touch of purple (thinking I would make something for a little girl). For some reason I expected everyone to make a traditional block, instead I got mostly liberated blocks. The colors are great but I do not know what to do with these. I think one of my biggest objections to the liberated method is the statement "if it's too small just add some fabric". That might look OK for some but it is hard to work with a block that has a 1/2 inch strip all around.
