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 thoughts about the project.
“Having made a pseudo-quilt for Quilt SOS (using the fabric Katherine’s Patchwork), which seemed to nevertheless take forever and be really annoying to sew, I was not too keen on doing a proper quilt. However, I had admired Claire’s rainbow quilt from last summer and figured that a strip quilt might be a beginner’s route into “quilting proper”, which would also make a lovely present for my elder son’s 13th birthday. He and I had recently redecorated his room together and I knew that he wanted some new bedding, so I decided to go for it!
Anna has used the following fabrics in the Quilt. She has combined fabrics from both the new SS19 English Eccentrics collection and the 40th Anniversary Classics Collection to create a lovely combination of colours.

Here’s the quilt in the window seat in Oscar’s room.
I’ve got more projects to follow over the next few weeks. Everyone has been really busy in the office making beautiful things using the two new collections.
