50 States Stitching Project: Week 2

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!? 

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


  1. So cute and so many more weeks of fun to come!

  2. Great post! I'm working on a big EPP project right now but I have never tried glue basting.
