What Makes a Liberated Quilter

You are a fan of Gwen Marston and love her books (Liberated Quiltmaking, Liberated Quiltmaking 2, Liberated String Quilts, Colloborative Quilting, etc).

You want to share your joy of quilting with like minded people.

You don't mind if your seams don't match, or the points on your triangles have been cut off.

You don't use patterns or kits. You go where your muse takes you.

You don't participate in BoM's (heaven forbid).

You make the odd art or traditional quilt, but prefer the liberated look.

You say "boo" to the quilt police.

You love quilting for quilting's sake.

Now the boring bit.

House rules for the ring (yawn).

Membership of the ring is by invitation only.

If you feel you are liberated then you are more than welcome to submit your blog for consideration by leaving a comment and include a brief description of why you think you are "liberated". Please do not be offended if you are not accepted, there are loads of other quilting web rings out there, one of which is bound to suit you.

Blogs have to be more than 2 months old before they can be submitted for consideration and you must post at least 3 times a month. Blogs will be removed from the ring if they are inactive.

You focus on liberated, unrestricted, outside the block quilts. Traditional is sort of ok, as are the odd art quilts, but, as we say above, liberated is your true style of quilting.

Photos are necessary. We want to see what you are working on.
