Liberty Like Classics

I like most of you love liberty fabrics.

I'm thinking most of us have a small stash amongst the others!

Problem I always had and I guess, the same for most is the cost when sewing something big!

When you are looking at a minimum of £5 per fat quarter for the cheapest I have seen but averages £5.60 - £6.00.

So sewing a king size quilt - Liberty Style is going to cost a fortune!!

Getting the Blues

I have been checking different makes and classics not necessary the latest limited design out there, as want to be able, like the liberty fabrics supply them as all rounder long term classics.

Pink Flush

But as well as using them for large patchwork, even floaty floral dresses, think about classic garden setting table cloth, napkins accents against white, curtains, bunting & blinds - the list is endless.

Rosey Red

So for me now I can sew that king size classic quilt throw I always wanted with scalloped edges!!
Heavily quilted.

So these fabrics I have put together are smooth 100% cotton poplin.
which will be priced at £1.50 fat Quarter or £6.00 a metre
And I will do mini sample packs as well, to check them out.

Doll Quilt

After what seems like an age making quilts.
(the day job kind of took over, too many hours….)
neglected the sewing, the shop not moving forward,
ideally you need to spend many hours on websites

Paris is doing her usually best to pose!!

2.5" squares make into 2" finished squares
8 squares by 10 squares
16" x 20" approx

Used the Rose & Hubble cotton

Now to get on and enjoy making more.
Come on Autumn lol

Just in!!!! The Glen

The Glen in snow by Lewis & Irene

Inspired by the historic Highlands region of Scotland where ancient rocks form majestic mountain ranges.
A contemporary palette compliments traditional themes to create ….

Can't wait to make a really smile cushion cover with the stag head!
just one piece of fabric and easy quilt the squares!
and a grey piping around the edge.

Rose & Hubble Cotton Poplin

Rose & Hubble Cotton Poplin

Cotton Poplin £1.50 FQ - £6 metre
Perfect for Dressmaking, baby clothes, pretty summer curtains & quilting, easy sew 100% cotton
Perfectly Priced

Cotton poplin explained, is a similar weight at most quilting fabrics per square inch, even those these vary manufacture to manufacture (Art Gallery Fabrics are very similar in feel).
But the difference is the cotton strands are slightly thinner, the weave is tighter which gives cotton poplin its smooth feel.

It glides easy through the sewing machine, you will gain less shrinkage
and is perfect for everything also due to the price from curtains, tablecloths, quilting & dress making.

I will be stocking up on more colours each month.

if you are interested message me!!
