It's great to be home again, and better still, to be back behind the sewing machine with renewed gusto. Whilst away from home I really missed being able to sew - especially in the evenings - and by the end of our trip I was itching to stitch. I am a creature of habit.
Not only did I return home with a case heavier than with which I departed but also to find the arrival of a surprise parcel from Liberty Lifestyle. This is the yet to be released Stile Collection by Liberty Lifestyle, a collection inspired by the Art Nouveau movement and more specifically the work of Scottish artist and watercolorist Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
There are 32 designs in the Stile collection: eight different prints in four color palettes - you can see the full collection here: Liberty Lifestyle. (I have added several prints from the Bloomsbury Collection to my quilt top because I just can't restrain myself from fabric play).
I've kept the quilt design simple - an alternating nine patch block - contrasted with a fresh white background to highlight the colors and delicate designs of this fabric collection; a nice way to ease myself back into the rhythm of my crafty life.
This quilt top is ready for basting.
