Lovely Liberty

I'm on the cover of Down Under Quilts Magazine in Australia !

well my quilt is :)

Down Under quilts Magazine #151 is now available to buy

I am extremely partial to liberty, I use it a lot. This particular quilt is ALL Liberty fabric! its so very lovely and soft.

The full story & pattern for this quilt is in issue #151 of Down Under Quilts

These two pictures where taken in the Liberty of London Store in October 2011

when I'm not in London (which is often, as I live in Sydney Australia) I buy my Liberty fabrics from Calico & Ivy Balmain
Its a lovely shop I highly recommend it.

This Lovely Liberty quilt had been on my mind for a while, it had been drawn and colour mapped on and off for a few months.

Then once I felt I had the right variance of colours in my fabric I dove in and made the top. It pieced together very easily and quickly. It's a nice simple pattern.

and on the back I used a shot cotton with a strip of pieced liberty remnants 

for the binding I also used liberty, its so nice to sew. Liberty binding is perfect.

Lovely Liberty, Liberty Love

Xx Siobhan

Can you purchase this pattern still. With the change in publishers I can't get a back issue ordered. Thanks

Thank that site worked. The ones I tried had not. I have been looking for something to do with the latest liberty line and your quilt inspired me. Thanks

I can't seem to be able to get this pattern anymore - Have you any plans to release it here?

I lived around the cnr from Calico & Ivy & miss it terribly! Can you recommend a similar Sydney shop or somewhere I can buy Liberty fabrics over the counter? I love your quilt, it's on my 'to do list'! Thanks.
