I thought that you might like some Liberty Quilt SOS Progress news for 2018. I launched our 2018 project back in January and, so far its going really well. Our lovely Alice Caroline customers have already pledged over 40 quilts. We need 66 quilts in total so are getting close! Some of the quilters have sent pictures of their quilt progress and I would like to share these with you. These are not finished quilts but you can see how fabulous they are going to be.
I’ve been sent some rather lovely pictures from the ‘Lewes Sewing Bees’. They have been busy making this gorgeous quilt. We’ve all been swooning over these pictures in the studio.
I love the windmill in this quilt. You can see the detail below. They are cleverly using Liberty scraps to give pops of colour to the quilt. I can imagine The ‘Lewes Sewing Bees’ meeting to discuss which fabrics would look best for each intricate piece of detail. Each one seems to be a perfect fit.
I especially love the gardens in the front of the houses. Wildflower meadows and more formal gardens can be seen at the bottom of this quilt design. There are beautiful trees of all seasons scattered in between.
We’ve also had pictures of this rather lovely blue quilt which is being made by Angela Seabrook. The blues in this quilt will make it perfect as a gift for a boy later on this year. The white border around the blue Liberty really shows the Liberty fabric to its best.
Below is a picture of Siobhan Marshall’s quilt in progress. I love the bright backgrounds with Liberty animals appliquéd on. I can’t wait to see this one finished too.
We do still need some more quilts so if you would like to support the project then you can take a look here. A selection of these quilts will be displayed at The Festival of Quilts this year. This is quite exciting and we are so grateful to the Festival of Quilts for supporting us. They have also offered us a discounted ticket price for the festival. Please enter the unique code SOS18 at the checkout to receive £2.50 off the adult ticket and £1.00 off the concession ticket prices. You can buy your Festival of Quilts tickets here.
Thank you to the wonderful quilters who have been sewing away. I can’t wait to see the quilts when they start to arrive in the studio.
