Eye Candy of the Liberty kind


Vintage Spools Quilt - Liberty Love

Meet my Ebay purchase of "Liberty Lawn" scraps.
Oh yes, Tuesday was a happy, happy, happy mail day :o)


80 different Liberty Lawn prints.
Could my mail have got any better yesterday? I think not.

What made this purchase even better.  There were only 6 double ups on the Liberty fabrics that I already had.  Which then meant that I got to pic and choose which ones were going to make it into this quilt.


The pattern called for 50 different prints (2 of each) but I have reached my goal of 

Now I really need to find my background fabrics and the wooden spool fabrics.
Just excuse me whilst I go and admire my collection some more :o)

  6. I have Liberty fabrics on the way too, Sharon - and it's all your fault! After seeing your post last week I couldn't resist being a copycat; I love Liberty lawn and have never seen bags of scraps available here. Last week a friend gave me a little package of Liberty pieces she bought in Japan and among my fabrics is a piece left over from yardage purchased at a Liberty sale when we lived in the UK 35+ years ago (yep, I'm a hoarder!) So I'm all set for lovely little projects. Thanks for the inspiration! Oh, and I'm looking forward to meeting you at Crafty Hi-Jinks next month.
