Inspired by a beautiful ‘granny’s flowers’ heritage quilt seen at a local museum, the Betsy’s Bouquet quilt combines the tradition of English Paper Piecing (EPP) and the ‘granny flowers’ design with stunning contemporary Liberty Tana Lawn® and Tilda Tea Towel fabrics.  A predominantly hand sewn project, your version of this exquisite quilt will be your own heirloom quilt for many years to come. 

Alice says “I love the geometry in quilts and the interesting way that hexagons tesselate together to form such a striking overall effect.  Betsy is one of my absolute favourite Liberty designs and so it was a natural choice as the fabric to tie the hexagon flowers together in this granny flowers quilt.  I have the granny flowers quilt that my grandmother made many years ago which was all hand sewn using fabrics from her old dresses and my grandfather’s shirts from the 1950s, 60s and 70s. She added an amazing, crocheted border as well as crochet between the ‘flowers’ so this design means so much to me.”

This is a monthly subscription scheme, and every month you will receive a beautiful box containing instructions, Liberty Tana Lawn® fabrics, Tilda Tea Towel fabric and pre-cut papers to make three or four English Paper Pieced (EPP) blocks. Over 12 months this will build into your own gorgeous Liberty & Tilda quilt. Each block forms a hexagon or part hexagon which then joins together at the end with the other blocks to make the finished quilt.

Mixing Liberty fabrics with the Tilda gives the finished quilt such interest.  We went searching for fabrics that would blend with Liberty, and these Tilda fabrics, with a tea towel stripe work perfectly.  The inspiration for the stripe comes from the history of how quilts were made in the past – every scrap of fabric in the home was used, and striped pieces were often made from worn-out men’s shirts.  With 45 blocks in total, the strong grounding colour of Betsy D for the block borders helps create a 1930’s vibe. The finished quilt is a perfect combination of contrasts and harmonies, to create a gorgeous quilt with vintage appeal which will look well in any home. 

Betsy’s Bouquet is a timeless quilt which uses Liberty classics, seasonal designs and plain white Tana Lawn.  In the whole quilt you will receive approximately 122 different prints.  The edges of this quilt have an interesting shape which flow with the hexagons and add to the interest of the quilt.

Other supplies you will need to complete your quilt:

  • Thread and medium/fine hand-sewing needles (available in our on-line shop’s Haberdashery section). We will also sell a special Aurifil thread pack which will be specially chosen to complement the colours of this quilt – this will be available soon.

Fussy-cutting

The amounts of fabric supplied are sufficient for cutting the patchwork shapes according to the supplied cutting layouts. If you want to fussy-cut other prints yourself, for instance to locate a particular motif within the design, you may need to buy extra fabric to do so. We would recommend you make a separate order for an extra fat quarter of any print which you decide to fussy-cut.
