Liberty Colour Wheel Quilt Block

This lovely Liberty colour wheel quilt block was made for us from a Red Pepper Quilt design.  It looks great just as a one block design to make a hanging picture, or you can piece together lots of blocks to make a stunning quilt.  I just love the beautiful hand stitched detail that this colour wheel block has – you can really make this your own project by choosing your favourite designs and colours.  This is a perfect project for your stash of Liberty fabric scraps but would work just as well from any pretty palette of rainbow coloured fabrics. …

Fleur Embellished Party Skirt – from Little Lady Liberty

A free party skirt pattern for you – one of the projects from my new book ‘Little Lady Liberty’.  I’ve used Liberty of London fabric but any pretty floral fabric would look great. This is my modern take on the kind of heavily embellished, traditional skirt worn with pride on special occasions by girls and women from different cultures across the world. If, like me, you have a closely guarded stash of ribbons, this is a great way to dip into your collection.  Take time to enjoy putting different combinations together, to create your very own heirloom masterpiece.  It’s surprising …

Super Cute Vintage Dress

I absolutely adore this super cute vintage dress made with one of my favourite fabrics from the Alice in Wonderland spring / summer Liberty collection. “Was I the same when I got up this morning?  I almost think I can remember feeling a little different.  But if I’m not the same, the next question is, who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle!” A fantastic quote from the Adventures of Alice in Wonderland – the fabric featured in this dress has been inspired by this quote and by the wonderful characters from the novel.   You can …
