Butterflies & Buds Liberty Quilt

Veronica Greenslade from the Lewes Sewing Bees has made this stunning Butterflies & Buds Liberty Quilt using the new Alice Caroline Exclusive ‘Butterfly Garden Collection’.   This gorgeous quilt showcases the ‘Butterfly Garden’ (reminiscent of an English Garden) perfectly with appliquéd butterflies coming out of a beautiful vase of flowers.     I asked Veronica about the quilt:   We love your ‘Bud and Butterflies Quilt’ – how did you come up with the design? “Once I knew these Exclusives were called the Butterfly Garden Collection and a butterfly was going to feature on the Betsy print I knew butterflies and …

Liberty Patchwork Dress

Laura has made this completely gorgeous patchwork dress using the new ‘Exclusive Butterfly Garden Collection‘.  Having been involved in the design process of this fabric collection, she couldn’t decide which fabric to make a dress out of so used lots of them.     These are Laura’s wise words about the sewing project:   “To anyone who has thought about sewing a patchwork outfit but then shied away from doing so, I would say to go for it! It is not at all as hard or tiresome as you may think and you will love it to bits, I am …

Beautiful Liberty Pyjamas

Sue Shoesmith from the Lewes Sewing Bees has made these beautiful Liberty Pyjamas.  She’s used the new Felicite Teal from my new ‘Butterfly Garden Exclusive’ collection and it’s a great choice.  The finished PJ’s are simply beautiful and it’s going to be really hard to send them back to Sue now that I’ve seen them! It’s such a special thing having a gorgeous set of pyjamas – we do spend a lot of time sleeping after all.     Before the summer holidays, I asked the lovely Lewes Sewing Bees if they wanted to use my new Butterfly Garden Exclusives …

Liberty Snowflakes Quilt

I wanted to showcase The Liberty Snowflakes Quilt that we have shown on Hochanda TV as it’s so beautiful. Kathy has made this version of the quilt after I designed it a couple of years ago.  She’s been desperate to start another EPP (English Paper Piecing) project since her first one last year and this was the perfect opportunity.  It’s called the Liberty Snowflake Quilt and, as in the case of a Snowflake, each block is different. There are 48 different Liberty fabrics in the quilt, each giving another beautiful pattern and colour. I asked Kathy about her time making …

Liberty Devon Petals Dress

Laura has been super busy again and has made this gorgeous Liberty Devon Petals Dress.  The fabric is from the new Liberty Botanicals collection and she’s used both colour ways to accentuate the lovely ruffles and ties on the dress. Laura tells us about the sewing project here: “Liberty’s new Botanicals collection is full of luscious floral prints inspired by the British countryside.  The fabric I have used is called Devon Petals and you will find both the navy version C and the cream version A on the Alice Caroline website.  I have used both colour ways in this prairie-style …

Liberty AW20 Dress

Lara from the studio has made this gorgeous Liberty AW20 Dress using ‘Star Anise A’ from the new AW20 collection.  Louise (also from the studio) is modelling the dress here.   I asked Lara about the sewing project.   What fabric did you use and why? “The main body of the dress uses ‘Star Anise A’ which is a hand painted design with ditsy flowers.  My contrast fabric for the sleeve and pocket edges, as well as for the neck binding and lower band is a grey dotty Makower fabric from Hobbycraft.  I really liked the ditsy fabric and the sunny …

Liberty Dress

Lucy from the studio has made this stunning dress using one of the new fabrics from the AW20 collection – Private View.  This is one of my favourite fabrics from this collection – I love the William Morris connection (it was inspired by the Morris Honeysuckle design) and this new interpretation has primulas and fritillaries in soft watercolours.   I asked Lucy about the sewing project. I love the fabric you have chosen – Elm House A – what drew you to the design? “When I first flipped through the sample book for the Private View AW20 collection of Liberty …

Liberty Garden Chair Covers

Pauline from the studio has made these gorgeous Liberty Garden Chair covers using a Tresco stretch denim.  This fabric is hard wearing and yet a little stretchy which is perfect for this project.  The finished result is a comfortable seat which will last a long time.  I asked Pauline about the project. “Ever since I started working at Alice Caroline, Tresco A has been a favourite of mine.  It leaps off the shelves with its bright yellows, greens, reds, purples, pinks and blues.  The colours should not go together but they blend beautifully and stand out against the green of …

Laura has made this stunning Liberty Lockwood Dress using one of the fabrics from the new Liberty AW20 collection – Lockwood A.  The pattern she has chosen is a perfect marriage with the fabric and the end result, beautiful.     Here is what Laura had to say about the beautiful dress.  “Liberty’s new AW20 collection ‘Private View’ is one of my favourite seasonal collections yet, there are so many stunning prints to choose from! What I especially love about the collection is the abundance of bright and happy prints. Autumn and winter doesn’t have to be all muted and …
