Liberty Wide Leg Trousers

Anna has made these Liberty Wide Leg Trousers using the new fabric ‘Painted Journey‘.  I absolutely love wide leg trousers and these ones certainly stand out.  They are slightly crazy but we all love them in the studio.   Everyone has had a go at trying them on. Anna went away over the Christmas break with the fabric to make these.  When it came to the final fitting of the trousers, Christmas eating meant that she couldn’t quite do the zip up when trying on.  She’s been obsessively running ever since!  On photography day, she just about managed to squeeze into …

Gorgeous Liberty Quilt As You Go Quilt

Anna JP has made this Gorgeous Liberty Quilt using a combination of the two latest Liberty fabric collections.  It has beautiful fabrics from both the Classics 40th anniversary collection and the SS19 seasonal collection. The Quilt as you go technique is really simple.  It’s a great way of getting a quilt result in quilting.  The method means that you have a backing piece of fabric (right side down), place your wadding on top of that and then quilt your panels onto the front.  In this case it is strips of whole width of fabric.    Here are some of Anna’s …

Christmas Cathedral Windows Cushion

I’m really excited to showcase this stunning Christmas Cathedral Windows Cushion.  It’s been designed by Suzanne Campion one of my customers.  I approached her earlier on in the year to make something using my exclusive fabrics. You may remember the cushion she made. As a result of this, lots of people asked for the pattern at The Festival of Quilts.  I asked Suzanne if she would ‘guest design’ the pattern for us.  Here it is.  Suzanne has made the cushion in these gorgeous Christmas colours. I’m selling this as a kit which is out now; the downloadable pattern will be …

Liberty Christmas Table Mats

These gorgeous Liberty Christmas Table Mats are sure to make your festive table shine.  This is the last of Sarah W’s Christmas projects. I asked Sarah about the project.  She said “This was my first attempt at free motion quilting and I’m thrilled with the result.  To make these table mats, I used a Christmas scrap pack and embellished with sequins and gold thread.  I also used one fat quarter of Capel Green to make the bias for the edging.  These were really fun to make and I can’t wait to use them on our Christmas table.” This sewing project …

Liberty Christmas Bunting

The project for today’s 12 Days of Christmas is this lovely Liberty Christmas Bunting.   It’s the second project by Sarah W from the studio.  You can use them as bunting or as hangings for sweets and treats or simply to jolly up your home. Sarah talked about her love of this project.  “I don’t know about you but for me, when it comes to Christmas, I’m a traditionalist.  My Christmas theme is red or green and a bit of gold to add the sparkle so when it came to choosing fabric for the Christmas stocking bunting it had to …

Christmas Tree Chocolate Holders

Sarah W from the studio has made these really sweet Christmas Tree Chocolate Holders.  They are really lovely and are the first of three projects that Sarah has made. Sarah says “These little cones were so quick and simple to make and look lovely on the tree filled with treats.  I’ve chosen reds and greens and have picked the Wiltshire Christmas  and matched it with a brighter red.  It only takes two 9′ x 13″ scraps to make four cones but I did use interfacing to give them some structure.  These were a pleasure to make and have added to …

Liberty Radiant Stars Quilt – BOM

Liberty Radiant Stars Quilt

Liberty Radiant Stars Quilt.  I am so excited to launch our Quilt BOM project for 2019. This stunning Liberty Tana Lawn Quilt is made of 30 quilt blocks which are all hand pieced using the technique English Paper Piecing (EPP).  EPP is a well-loved technique and is used around the globe.  It is a method of creating beautiful patchwork by joining different shapes of fabric together, with the paper templates helping to align each fabric piece perfectly. You do not need a sewing machine for EPP as the pieces are hand-sewn. This is not a difficult technique to grasp, and …

100 Blocks 100 Days Liberty Quilt

One of my customers, Lisa Perry, has made this gorgeous Liberty Quilt.  It was inspired by the Gnome Angel sew along and uses Tula Pink designs from her book ‘100 Modern Quilt Blocks’.  I love the gorgeous mix of Liberty fabrics in this quilt.  It’s so vibrant and fun. Lisa came in to the studio a few weeks ago with this beautiful Liberty Quilt.  Everyone gathered round (as is traditional here) to see what Lisa had brought in.  I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures and sharing her quilt story with you.  I asked her a few questions about the …

Midnight Blue Liberty Quilt – Featured in Today’s Quilter

I’ve recently designed this Midnight Blue Liberty Quilt for Today’s Quilter Magazine.  I had a vision to make a blue and white quilt, inspired by the willow pattern found on many pieces of china.  I love this old pattern.  The raw edged central panel was inspired by Chinese wallpapers (like the ones you see at Chatsworth).  I bought some huge platters at an auction recently and wanted to use these designs for my most recent quilt.  It’s got a pretty awesome central applique panel which I love on the white background.  Among other flora and fauna, this panel has both a …
