Amazing Liberty Boy’s Quilt

I am really excited to show you this amazing Liberty boy’s quilt which was been made for the Quilt SOS project by ‘The Lewes Quilting Bees’. This lovely group of quilters have joined together, shared the Liberty fabric from a Quilt SOS pack and made this wonderful Liberty boy’s quilt.  We all get so excited when another quilt comes into the studio.  I am delighted that we have nearly enough quilts now for all of the children in Vilnius in Lithuania.  We only need 5 more quilts so if you fancy joining late to the Quilt SOS party then do …

Beautiful Bear Quilt

I really wanted to show you this beautiful bear quilt that Valerie Mckeown has made.  I love this time of year when the Quilt SOS quilts arrive at the studio.  I have so many of them to show you and will get around to photographing them all before they go off to Vilnius in Lithuania.  I hope to have a gallery of the quilts very soon so that you can see all of the wonderful sewing that has gone into them. I asked Valerie a few questions about the quilt and here’s what she said: What inspired you to join …

Liberty Love Letters Quilt

I absolutely love this Liberty Love Letters Quilt!  I asked Jemima from Tied with a Ribbon if she would like to make a quilt from my exclusive Liberty fabric range, and she said yes!  I think you will agree that the finished quilt is stunning. It took a long time to develop the exclusive Liberty range of fabrics, so, to see it used in a finished quilt like this fills me with such happiness.  Half square triangles look so pretty all in a row! Head on over to Jemima’s blog to see the full quilt and to find the pattern. I …

Summer Meadow Liberty Quilt

I am really excited to tell you about my new Summer Meadow Liberty Quilt.  I was commissioned by Todays’s Quilter Magazine a while ago to make this quilt which was one of the most exciting things to happen to me this year.  The quilt made it to the front cover of the magazine of Issue 25 – hurray! Here is the quilt outside my studio.  I have entered it into the competition at the Festival of Quilts so I hope to see it on display.  I love seeing the displays of quilts at the FOQ.  Seeing quilters pouring over the …

I am so blown away by the amazing quilts you are sending in for the 2017 Quilt SOS project.  I really wanted to share some of them with you for inspiration.   Here’s a delicious stack of the amazing quilts I’ve had so far.  They are jam packed with Liberty loveliness!  We have had six quilts in so far but have had pledges to make many more.

Liberty patchwork Anna Bag

Sarah from the studio has made this really pretty Liberty patchwork Anna Bag from my range of exclusive Liberty fabrics.  It’s simply lovely.  It brings together two of my favourite things – putting colours together and making bags. The pattern for this bag was inspired by my friend Anna who a couple of years ago made a quilt for her daughter from hand pieced Liberty hexagons.  I’m normally too impatient to hand sew, but I’ve always liked the portability of crafts like knitting.  So I devised this partially-portable sewing project as a way to reconnect with making by hand.  It’s a …

Super Pretty Liberty Chevron Quilt

Anna from the studio has made this lovely Liberty Chevron Quilt using my new Exclusive Liberty fabrics from the new collection.  It’s really pretty and is featured in ‘Be Creative with Workbox Magazine’ in their May / June issue.  The pattern is from my Chevron Quilt pattern but you can get the pattern free if you buy the magazine which is on sale now. This is a really fun quilt to make that uses a quick piecing method.  It’s a lovely way to use your rainbow fabrics. The finished quilt size is 38″ x 52″ which can be used as …

Quilt SOS – Helping Children in Need

I am very excited to be launching our successful ‘Quilt SOS’ project for a second year. Working with the fantastic charity SOS Children’s Villages and with a growing army of talented and kind-hearted quilters, we donate quilts to children who have lost their families.   What could be better than to make quilts for those who really need them? I am putting the call out to people who love to sew to make a Liberty SOS Children’s Villages quilt. We have so much in our lives that we forget that there are people in the world who have virtually nothing. We will be doing what we do best, making quilts …
