Liberty Nightdress

Dawn from the studio has made this gorgeous Liberty Nightdress in one of my exclusive Liberty white on white fabrics.  The finished nightdress is so delicate and has some lovely lace detail which compliments the style perfectly.

Beautiful Bench Cushions – Liberty Quilting Cotton

Sarah from the studio has made these Beautiful Bench Cushions for her pew using some of the festive quilting cottons.
