Sunday Stash #36


Liberty Tana Lawn fabrics - very classic and traditional British fabrics, 100% cotton, finely woven, lightweight, soft and durable with the most lovely drape.   These fabrics are ideal for blouses, skirts and sleepwear, but of course for use in special quilts.  


Liberty fabrics are expensive, and therefore somewhat limited in my stash.  Slowly I am building up my own Liberty collection, purchasing the occasional fat quarter.  I have a feeling a pink quilt is in the planning stages in my head.

My collection of pink Liberty was purchased at Patchwork on Central Park.  A good selection is also available online at Calico and Ivy and  Purl Soho.

  1. they are beauties, aren't they? But can be a pain to quilt - stitches can slip, you need a brand new, extra sharp needle. The quilt on our bed is made with all liberty prints, and every night I stroke it and it makes me so happy. Every night my husband looks at me like I'm a lunatic!

  8. I too love the Liberty Prints and have just made a scrap crib quilt for my baby to be out of pink and blue 16ths from Patchwork on Central Park! I am yet to attach the binding, however. You can check it out if you're interested at kitbikquilts.blogspot.com
    Cheers, Sarah

  13. They're lovely. I have a few scrap-sized pieces of the Liberty fabrics. They are so very expensive, I really have to love the print to buy it! :)
