Scrappy Liberty Patchwork Quilt

A finished quilt and picture post.
I love a quilt roll!  This is the finished Scrappy Liberty Patchwork Quilt that I was working on last week and it is everything I imagined it to be. I really do love a simple patchwork quilt, and you can't go wrong with a mix of small scale floral prints together with Liberty Tana Lawn  (although I am not sure that this small image of the whole quilt does the gorgeous fabric any justice).


The patchwork squares each measure 2 inches x 2 inches (finished) and I estimate that I have used close to 80 different small scale floral fabrics, although not all are Liberty Tana Lawn (and several are reclaimed vintage floral prints).


I have quilted the quilt with an all over 1 inch grid (intersecting horizontal and vertical lines) and as a result all seam lines have been ditch-stitched. The quilting lines running through the center of each square have been stitched with the assistance of a quilting guide - attached to the walking foot - in an effort to keep the lines nice and straight.

For the back of the quilt I have used the last of my hoarded yardage of the Bouquet design from the Posy Collection by Aneela HoeyUse it or lose it is my motto for 2014.


And I have finished the quilt with a scrappy binding. Scrappy quilt + scrappy binding = my patchwork heaven.
This quilt is for sale and is listed in my Etsy Store.

  10. I think this could be may favourite of your quilts, Rita, but it would be hard to choose. Just beautiful fabric and perfect execution, of course.

  13. Interesting that you mixed Liberty Tana Lawn with non-Liberty prints. I considered doing that with my recent Liberty finish but when it came right down to it, I considered that polluting, LOL! This turned out gorgeous.

  17. I agree! I love your scrappy quilts. They have so much character :)

    I would like to make a Liberty quilt someday, probably a scrap quilt. Of course the fabric is gorgeous but very pricey. Do you have any tips on finding Liberty fabric "cheap"? It seems that even bags of Liberty scraps are not cheap.

  20. This is beautiful. I have just a few Liberty scraps and I haven't used them yet as the weight of the fabric seems so different from the rest of my stash. Perhaps one day I will have enough for a whole quilt. Yours is an inspiration!

  21. I so would have bought this and wouldn't have cared what it cost! Alas, it is already gone! It is just beautiful. I think I may have to adopt your motto for 2014, too!!

  22. Love your beautiful and charming quilt. I understand why you sell your quilts, to buy more fabric! I have a hard time letting go of mine but I think 2014 is going to be different. Thank you for your lovely inspirations Rita.
