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 …

Liberty Confetti Quilt by Tied With A Ribbon

I love working with amazing designers and so, when Jemima said she wanted to make this Liberty Confetti Quilt with the new exclusives, I jumped at the chance.  She’s based in Australia and designs quilt patterns.  She loves Liberty fabrics and so I love to collaborate with her. This Liberty Confetti Quilt is the perfect quilt for my exclusives as it shows the fabric off really well.  The fabrics can really shine set against the pale background Tana Lawn. The exclusives all cut up and ready to start piecing with the nude Tana Lawn. The exclusives are beginning to shine …

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 …

Beautiful Liberty Blouse

Sara from the studio has had this Beautiful Liberty Blouse made for her and I wanted to share it with you.  It’s a really sweet blouse and I especially love the sleeve detail.

The fabric:  Donna …

Liberty Table Mat

I am delighted to showcase this rather lovely Liberty Table Mat, the second project by the Lewes Sewing Bee, Anne Commin.  Thank you so much Anne for making this sweet table decoration. This is what Anne had to say about the Liberty Table Mat: “The mini quilt is one of my favourite household objects. I use them all over the place – chests of drawers, side tables and bedside tables.  My mum used to make them out of the less worn out parts of favourite skirts and dresses that she had finished with.  Everyone should have a go.  Make it …

Quilt Block Project Planner

Anne Commins from the Lewes Sewing Bees has made this rather lovely Quilt Block Project Planner.  I asked the Sewing Bees to sew with my exclusive fabrics before the summer.  I have been completely bowled over with all of the projects that have appeared in the studio.  This project is such a great idea.  It’s a really fabulous way to plan your quilt block.  Anne has used a lovely combination of my exclusive Strawberry Thief and Capel Mint as the basis of the project planner. On the front of the Quilt Block Project Planner there is a pocket which can …

Beautiful Betsy Dress

The lovely Tracy Aplin (or Sewing Tracy as she is also known) has made this Beautiful Betsy Dress. The pattern Tracy has used for this Beautiful Betsy Dress is called Blitz by Sew La Di Da Vintage.  It’s a 1940’s style inspired dress.  The original pattern has an open neck and a Peter Pan collar.  Tracy changed the neckline to a curved edge and lost the collar which means it is a much simpler make. Tracy chose the new Alice Caroline Exclusive Betsy Pink Gold which looks really pretty and summery.  The gold in the fabric gives just a hint …
