Since I was a little kid, I've always been fascinated by the Statue of Liberty, finally visiting her a few years ago. And she did not disappoint! With that in mind, I'd like to introduce another wall hanging to add to my patriotic collection - Liberty.

The final version did end up slightly different than the in-progress picture from last week, with the removal of the smaller HST's at the edges.

As I said, I certainly didn't set out to make another patriotic wall hanging pattern when I started playing with the new half square triangle dies from Crafters Edge. Guess I was having too much fun cutting and sewing HST's as these dies make perfect HST's.

These new HST dies should be available soon, but in the meantime, you can get your hands on a brand new Crafters Edge Crossover II cutting machine at 25% off during the whole month of July - that's an awesome sale!

After playing with different settings for my dark blue and light aqua HST blocks, I pulled out one of the numerous patriotic prints from my stash - bingo! The ideas for a new patriotic wall hanging started taking shape, and in a day or so, Liberty was born.

Finished Liberty came out to be the perfect size for an alcove near my front door, measuring in around 38" x 38". It looks as if that spot was made for her - love it!

Can you tell I had a great time quilting Liberty? Stitching some art deco style quilting in the aqua triangles, reminiscent of the Empire State Building, adds an additional New York reference.

Straight lines at various angles add interest to the dark blue areas, and celebratory ribbon quilting accents the patriotic print.

As for Liberty herself, I added a few simple lines to give shape to her face, crown, and robe. Those quilting detail lines are included in the pattern.

With a few HST's (die cutter not necessary), a couple rectangles and squares, plus a grand applique, Liberty can honor your wall too. From now until July 5, the Liberty wall hanging pattern is available at a special Fourth of July sale price - take advantage of this special sale while you can!

Happy Fourth of July!
