Lovin' Liberty

At the Fat Quarterly Retreat last summer, I first saw bolts of Liberty fabric in person.  Of course I heard of Liberty before July 2012, but as I grew up in the US it was never a big deal.  Not our kind of thing, I guess.

Everything changed when Liberty released a fabric line suitable for quilting.


I found these beauties at the Knitting and Stitching show a few days ago. Eva told me when entering the show that one vendor had a Liberty display.  I could not get there fast enough.  Once I had a dig around and pulled the 4 prints I wanted to take home, Fiona convinced me I needed more.  It didn't take much to convince me, did it?


Now what will I make with them?  Any ideas?

I'm building up my meagre stash of Liberty before I make any rash decisions! Love the colours you've chosen!

Lots of red, yes, but also lots of pink. It looks like spring to me. Bright and light and soaking in buckets of fresh air.

Just sit and admire them for a lot longer. That's half the fun!

I love them, in fact I have a few on order, and a swap coming with a small bit of every single one. Maybe you should put them in your shop, there is a new line coming out too, maybe in the spring?

Gorgeous! How about a couple of pieced cushions or pillowcases? And save the rest for a special bag or inclusion in a quilt...

Yes, please take some to your shop! When I was young(er) my mom used to get Liberties - she was always fancying them and made them sound something really adorable! x Teje

I will enjoy seeing whatever you decide to make! Beautiful fabric!

I'd make a bag as then you could give those beauties an outing to show them off. I've only just got some of the older Liberty -Rowan ones, as they were in a sale!
