I can feel spring in the air!
I'm a big fan of the in-between seasons.
I usually find that when the weather starts to change so does my fabric buying habit - take for example the linen that was delivered today (pictured below)
Yellow - Pink - Sand
all Linen/Cotton blends
all happy spring time colours
On the subject of Fabric buying
I had an email asking about Liberty of London Fabrics. Liberty of London Tana Lawn is a lovely soft fabric that can be on the $$$ side. I have made a few quilts in the last year or so with Liberty of London fabric - one being a queen bed sized that was in Down Under Quilts Magazine #151.
I had been collecting my fabrics for a really long time - buying 1/2 yards at a time. Some from shops in Paris, London, online from Purl soho and in person from Sydney Shop Calico & Ivy. It is beautiful and does make a lovely quilt. If your using the Tana Lawn Fabrics it can be a little slippery to sew with, I recommend using a spray starch to help make it stable and easy to handle.
If anyone has a "Go To" shop to buy Liberty of London I'm sure everyone would love to see, leave a link and everyone can have a look.
I hope the weather keeps up in Sydney over the coming week - and the weather in New York City is lovely for my trip next week!
