A few weeks ago the ladies at Alice Caroline reached out to see if I’d like to make something with their brand new, exclusive range of fabrics from Liberty. I said yes straight away, and stalked the mailbox with anticipation. When they arrived I set out to plan my project.  I remembered being particularly drawn […]

    This is a classically beautiful quilt that will never look trendy or dated. Sooo good Meredith! As for a favorite fabric of the bunch…impossible! It’s easy to pick a favorite until you look at the next choice. They are all perfect. Also, your new location for photos is fabulous.ReplyCancel

  • Kaitlin Madson

    I’ve been admiring that quilt top for the last few weeks as you’ve posted updates, it’s gorgeous!! I’m also thinking the Margaret Annie is my favorite. Though, that green June’s meadow is ! Thanks for the sweet giveaway!ReplyCancel

  • Kimberlier

    I’ve never seen with any Liberty fabrics & I would love to. Your quilt shows them off fantastically well! My fav print would have to be the Margaret in hot orange.ReplyCancel

  • Hey Mer! Beautiful quilt top!!! Gorgeous range they designed huh!?! My favs are Mitsi Y or Betsey Y, can’t choose!
    Ps. @farmgirlpaints on IG, had this same internet problem when she moved, was going to cost thousands to run lines then someone suggested to her to get a “hot spot” type wifi box, I honestly can’t remember exactly but it solved the problem and was WAY cheaper! You could DM her and ask. Hope this helps! XoReplyCancel

  • Sally

    Beautiful quilt! I always prefer mint, but that green is so pretty. My favorites are Mitsi X Mint and June’s Meadow Green.ReplyCancel

  • Stephanie

    Beautiful quilt! My favorite new print is Margaret Annie X Turquoise Pink. I could stare at it for ages. Thanks for the opportunity to win this lovely prize!ReplyCancel

  • Gorgeous fabrics and great quilt.ReplyCancel

  • Stephanie

    Your quilt top is amazing and definitely pinning for when my Liberty scrap stash is ready..

    It’s so hard to pick, but I think my favorite is the Betsy mint — such great colors.ReplyCancel

  • Lovely quilt! I am like you and must have all the Betsy’s… but that Wiltshire M is yummy and definitely my fave! Sorry to hear about your internet… growing up in the boondocks I remember these woes quite well :SReplyCancel

  • I love misti y!ReplyCancel

  • Elizabeth Di Battista

    That quilt is gorgeous! If I had to choose a favourite (they all are spectacular) I would pick the Tana Lawn Betsy X Pink and Green. It reminds me of fabric from the 60’s – has a retro vibe.ReplyCancel

  • Ivy

    Hard to pick a favorite, but I do really like the Margaret Annie X hot orange! You’re always pointing me to new prints I “just have to have!” lol.ReplyCancel

  • Lauren

    So pretty, Meredith! The yellow June’s Meadow is my favorite. I hope you guys are loving your new home!ReplyCancel

  • Gorgeous quilt and what a setting to showcase it! I love seeing quilter’s works – perhaps not being a quilter myself – I’m a garment sewer exclusively so far but I’ve been eyeing other projects lately like bag-making :) but that doesn’t stop me from going to Quilt Shows and Galleries to ooh and ah. Also I wanted to thank you for that link to Alice Caroline in the UK! I’m in Canada and often order Liberty from the UK but I’m always on the hunt for more sources. Shipping from the UK to Canada is much less than from the US and I do find their prices quite reasonable. Liberty lawn is up there with silk for me :)ReplyCancel

  • Andrea M

    I love the Betsy print in so many colors, but I really like the printed panels too!! Love this quilt and thanks for the giveaway!ReplyCancel

  • Denise

    The Margaret Annie is my favorite! This quilt is gorgeous!ReplyCancel

  • Linda

    Hi,love this post! Love the photography too!
    “Mitsi X Mint”is my favorite!Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

  • Jeni

    The first print that stood out to me was, of course, June’s meadow in green! Lol. I love the pink and green Betsy too. Ok, all of them. Your quilt is beautiful.

    Also, I’m sure you’ve looked into this, but when we moved to the country (N. Alabama) we were forced to,use satellite internet. Hughes Net was the provider, I believe. Not ideal (super slow in inclement/cloudy weather), but we decided it was better than nothing!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah

    That quilt. So awesome. I think the Margaret Annie is my favorite!ReplyCancel

  • June’s ameadow in green is my favorite! Perfect for spring (the yellows too). I just started buying a little Liberty here and there, so I’d love to win. The red you used provides such a beautiful contrast – it totally makes the quilt!ReplyCancel

  • Pamela

    Your quilt is awesome! The small HST’s are the perfect dimention for showcasing these small and delightfully intricate prints. And the overall effect is classic and beautiful. I love it! As for the Liberty prints, it’s hard to choose one! But I think I love Petal and Bud best. Thanks for sharing this beautiful post, and for the chance to win!ReplyCancel

  • i love that green june’s meadow, and the mint besty! they are all gorgeous. love your quilt – it is beautiful.ReplyCancel

Have you ever purchased a piece of fabric for a special project only to have it sit on a shelf waiting for when you are in the right mindset, the perfect size, or just done with everything else?  Well I purchased one of my all time favorite Liberty prints, Anna’s Garden, in fleece from DuckaDilly […]

  • I just love that Liberty pattern and to have it on nice, cozy fleece! It certainly makes gorgeous tops for both of you! I just ordered some more Liberty cotton this morning – I received my first Liberty cotton ever yesterday and fell so in love with it I had to order more this morning. The feel of that Liberty cotton is really something to behold. No wonder everyone raves about it so much :)ReplyCancel

  • ErinH

    Beautiful sweaters! I had no idea Liberty came in flannel! Glad to hear you are all together again – it struck a chord with me as our most recent move involved hubby moving 6mo before me – I know the joy of being back together! Best wishes for your new adventure :)ReplyCancel

A few weeks ago while I was in the midst of packing, I felt the urge to use up some fabric and make Layla some new dresses. These urges seem to happen when I should be doing something responsible. Ha! It was perfectly justified though, because Layla is seriously lacking dresses and I didn’t want […]

Rae, mastermind and artist over at Made by Rae, asked if I would like to sew with some of her new knit collection from Cloud 9, Sidewalk. Of course I said yes! I love her designs and her style, period, but I really waned to give this organic cotton knit a go.  When it arrived […]

    I made pajamas out of the Sidewalk fabric for Christmas this year and it was such a dream to sew. The whole time I was making them I kept thinking “I need to buy more of this!”ReplyCancel

Recently a young mother on social media posted a quote about how quickly kids grow up and then commented about how she just doesn’t know how to do it all. She loves to make make make but finds it difficult to do that while having a baby, plus manage the other aspects of the household. […]

    Awesome post, Meredith! Thank you for your honesty and encouraging words! Just what I needed.ReplyCancel

  • This was such a great post, Meredith! I am fortunate that I get a lot of help from my parents and my husband’s parents with our kids, which is when I am able to do a lot of my sewing. It is easy for me to become super focused on my sewing projects and let my other responsibilities fall to the wayside, including my family who are ultimately the most important. This is such a good reminder to slow down on the projects and be present with my people. I don’t want them to feel cast off because I am selfishly focusing on my hobby above everything else.ReplyCancel

  • I love this.ReplyCancel

  • Andrea M

    I love this. Thank you. :)ReplyCancel

  • Very well put, and I completely agree with everything!
    Isn’t it a blessing to have the older, mature ladies in your Bible study group? The ones who have been through it all and have perspective? I flock to these women at our study and they have been invaluable to me in so many ways.ReplyCancel

  • Emily

    You’re so right.
    You definitely can’t have it all, men nor women.
    Being a parent is such a privilege. Raising respectable humans is daunting and exhilarating and awe-some. I love how seriously you take it.ReplyCancel
