And last week this beautiful fabric arrived through my letterbox - 16 little 6" squares of the most beautiful soft Liberty. Ali picked a fabulous muted palette of greys and blues. I'm going to pair them with some pure white fabrics and I can't wait to get started because I reckon they will be just beautiful against the white. I'm going to be making a cushion (pillow) cover with them. Last year I made this drunkard's path mini-quilt in a swap that I was very sad to send away - I just loved it. I always thought it would make a lovely cushion cover, and that's what I plan to do. I may play around with the layout a little - Drunkard's Path blocks are so versatile - but we'll see what happens when I start piecing!
I will be really interested to see what it is like working with these Liberty fabrics. They are so, SO soft and so fine. I imagine that a larger piece of fabric would have wonderful drape for dressmaking. (Note to self: next dress for the littlest lady may need to be a Liberty one). Ali included a little card with lots of information and tips for sewing with Liberty lawns which was great, as I hadn't realised how fine it was before I got it.
If you haven't already checked out Ali's shop on Folksy, you should pop over and have a look. She has beautiful fabrics and little charm bundles and is so lovely to deal with. She also has a Facebook page where she posts special offers etc so make sure you follow her there too!
