Gorgeous Liberty Dress

Laura from the office has made this Gorgeous Liberty Dress.  She’s used the Strawberry Thief fabric from the new 40th classics anniversary collection.  It’s the same fabric as Annie’s dress last week.  Both are really cute and work really well in this fabric. I asked Laura about the sewing project.  She said “I fell in love with the green, teal and coral colours of this new Strawberry Thief print and just knew it would make a lovely dress! But what kind of dress, I wondered… It had to be a something simple that didn’t take away from the detailed print …

Strawberry Thief Knot Bag

The lovely Dawn from the studio has made this Strawberry Thief Knot Bag to match her gorgeous UGG boots.  She has used the colourway  Strawberry Thief L.   I asked Dawn about the sewing project.  “I really liked the look of Alice’s knot bag pattern and it was easy to decide on the fabric.  Strawberry Thief L matches my Ugg boots and a little scarf I made a few months ago!

Gorgeous Liberty Quilt As You Go Quilt

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 …

New Liberty Classics

Liberty have launched some lovely New Liberty Classics so I thought, what better to do than to share! The Liberty design team have been playing around with the scales and colourways of some classic Liberty prints.  These sweet prints are small and medium florals with some William Morris influences too.  The prints feel rather like heritage prints from the past but recoloured or resized for modern use.  ‘Elysian Day‘ is from the Liberty archives and was designed in the 1920’s.  Although this new classic version is on the same scale, it has been recoloured.  I have four stunning new colours …
