I thought I’d show you my Liberty Tree of Life sewing pattern today.
This is a really fun sewing project as well as being a great way to use up your stash of lovely Liberty scraps. I had such fun putting the colours and fabric designs together for this pattern and love the contrasting colours of this particular design. With this pattern, you can choose whichever fabrics you love or are your favourite colours. It uses around 45 Liberty scraps of fabric – so lots of scope to delve into your stash of fabric to choose interesting designs and patterns
One of my customers is choosing her ‘Tree of Life’ by linking fabric names to members of her family making it a ‘Family Tree of Life’. I really liked this idea – it sounds fun finding the Liberty fabrics to match family names. Hopefully, I’ll get to see the finished ‘Family Tree of Life’ and I’ll share the pictures with you if I do!
Here are just a few of the fabrics she has chosen: Williams as her family name, Anna’s Garden for her mother and Fairford as she grew up in the beautiful Cotswold village of Fairford.
My pattern design was inspired by the totally amazing Indian chintzes at the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London. It uses a raw edge technique which is an easy and fun way to applique!
The pattern includes full and illustrated instructions, layout and full size templates. The finished size of the quilt is 32″ x 42″ (82cm x 107cm) which is perfect for a cot quilt, lap quilt or a wall hanging.
My pattern is £10 and you can get it here
