Recently DuckaDilly asked me to put together a curated bundle of Liberty prints for them. You can imagine I went back and forth deciding if I should. Kidding. I said yes in three seconds. I spent the better portion of a night on their site and came out with a deep, moody bundle that’s perfect...
Gorgeous! Your dog seems to like it too! When I was in Lancaster, PA, I bought a small decorative quilt from a Mennonite store Eventually I’m going t put iit above my bed.
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.
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!
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.
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! Xo
Beautiful quilt! I always prefer mint, but that green is so pretty. My favorites are Mitsi X Mint and June’s Meadow Green.
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!
Gorgeous fabrics and great quilt.
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.
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 :S
I love misti y!
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.
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.
So pretty, Meredith! The yellow June’s Meadow is my favorite. I hope you guys are loving your new home!
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 :)
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!
The Margaret Annie is my favorite! This quilt is gorgeous!
I love everything Betsy, but the Poppy & Dasiy print with the hint of yellow really is my favorite of this collection. Your quilt is stunning!!
I love the misti x mint
I love your quilt and fell in love w liberty on my first trip to london back in 1989
Mitsi Valerie X
Beautiful work Meredith!
I love that mint Betsy!
what a gorgeous quilt! i love the poppy and daisy x, though it is hard to choose just one favorite.
Hi,love this post! Love the photography too!
“Mitsi X Mint”is my favorite!Thanks for sharing!
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!
That quilt. So awesome. I think the Margaret Annie is my favorite!
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!
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!
June’s Meadow in yellow is beautiful! I love Alice Caroline, their scrap bags are particularly good value for money. Hope you’re settling in well in your new place :)
I love June’s Meadow Green and I think it would be lovely as a spring skirt.
i love that green june’s meadow, and the mint besty! they are all gorgeous. love your quilt – it is beautiful.
I love the Yellow June’s Meadow– it’s such a perfect shade of yellow (in my opinion), but of course they are allllll beautiful!
I love the Betsy in the Pink and Green. I love your quilt- clever design!
I just stumbled upon your blog and LOVE IT!!! This quilt is lovely and that fabric collection is just lovely. I just took an EPP class and am in love with 1930’s fabric! This collection has a slight 30’s feel to it! I think my favorite is the Poppy and Daisy N of all the fabrics!
My favorite is the Betsy Mint, thank you for the chance to win. Have a great day! dawnm1993(at)gmail(dot)com
I like the Mitsi X Mint.
I like the liberty patchwork. Very pretty, all of them!!
I like June’s Meadow Yellow
Meredith this is gorgeous. Like everything you create ;)
I love the meadow yellow!
So fun! I like the betsy x and the mixed pinks. What a great pattern you choose to show off the tiny prints! Well done!
Argh! Always so hard to choose, but as I am a bit of a Wiltshire fanatic, that Wiltshire print in the Retro colorway is just divine!
Oh drool! I’m in love with the Margaret Annie Y Hot Orange. I’ve never gotten to work with Liberty fabrics- might have to get out the credit card!
allisonpogany at gmail.com
I like the meadow green. It is such a calm soothing color. Thanks for the giveaway.
Your quilt is just stunning! So crisp and fresh! I love these prints, but my favorite is Liberty Fabric Tana Lawn Mitsi Z Pale Pink…so sweet!

I like them all but Tana Lawn Poppy and Daisy is wonderful. Your quilt is wonderful.

How to choose? LOL

I can see a tree skirt being made with these.
Pretty! I’d love to make the quilt in gearing up to start for my froend’s wedding next fall.
With 3 yards, I’d pick a beautiful print for a quilt back. Hopefully, I’d have enough left over for a matching pillow front!

For us in the Antipodes, Christmas is a sunny affair with barbeques and games at the beach or lake. After delicious food all day it’s lovely to lie on the grass to spot comets and planets after the sun has gone down. I can definitely see a light quilt made from Oh What Fun fabric – Christmas theme in summery colours – tucked around some sleepy heads as the day ends
I have been in LOVE with this collection!! I would be so excited to use the Oh What Fun collection to make a hexie Christmas stocking!
I’d love to make some pillows, too!

My couch needs some festive Christmas pillows!
I would love to make some Violette Field Threads dresses for my daughter. Thanks for the chance to win.
I like seeing people who sew also knit. I’m a knitter that is taking up sewing again with a new sewing machine. I liked the domino fabric that I saw on Hawthorne Threads – in the octopus. Doesn’t sounds Chistmas-y, but my son would love it. Perfect for pillows for his living room.
I said pillows on the other sites and now that I have seen what you made I want to make exactly what you did, love those pillows!
Your pillows are delightful. Stockings are the holiday project I NEED to get done this year!! Thanks for the inspiration and giveaway:)

HI,I’d love to make a new quilt! Thanks for sharing!
I love Christmas quilts. This fabric would be so fun, lite and not overwhelmingly colorful. Love it. Thanks.
Your ampersand pillow really caught my eye…I love that! I would make matching placemats and a table runner with 3 yards of this fabric and use it on my dining room table for the holidays!
I would love to make Holiday pillows to brighten up our home – we often get caught up in the craziness of this time of year (making it often hard to decorate as much as I would like) and I feel like this fabric would be the perfect way to get into the spirit of the holidays.
I’m a quilter so I’d love to make some wintry throws for my sofa with this pretty fabric. Your merry & bright lettering on the pillows is so clever… because of your stitching, I thought you had used a musical fabric.
I’d make a holiday couch quilt and some decorative pillows.
I would make pillow cases for my kids, nieces and nephews.

Right now, I’m loving making quilts for my grand nieces and nephew!
I would make some cute neew placemats
Right now I am trying to piece together (in my head) a herring bone pattern quilt for our king size bed. I want to stay in the red tones. We have a gorgeous canvas print of a tree over our bed, so I would like to use something similar in the fabric print.
Would love to make a winter quilt.
A dress for my cousin or a lap quilt
So happy to see that I am not the only one who loves a pom pom!

Welcome to Olivia Jane Handcrafted! I'm Meredith and this is my creative journal. Here you'll find loads of inspiration for a handmade wardrobe, home decor, bags, and quilts. I even have plenty of projects and tutorials to get you started or help you along the way.
This is stunning and I do have a couple of favorite blocks. Are the dresses you made Liberty? Recently I get inspiration and motivation from the sewing community online. Seeing people make beautiful items makes me want to challenge myself. Who doesn’t love pretty fabrics used creatively??
Love the quilt and the beautiful words about your Grandma. I will let someone else win the scraps Any Irish blood with your lovely red hair?
So beautiful Meredith! You’re inspired me to make a pineapple quilt as well! I’ve never made a Liberty quilt, or a pineapple quilt!
I think capel is also one of my favorite Libert prints Meredith!!! So lovely as picture frames of each pineapple. I’m reading a book called Craftfulness I think you would like it too…your post reminded me of the things the author is writing about and what ‘making’ means to them. Thanks for a chance at your scraps. I know I’d start with pincushions for sure
I have similar feelings about my grandmother and creativity. She passed away when I was 17, but every time I finish a project, I wish I could share it with her. I have never owned any Liberty fabric () so it would be so fun to have your scraps! I’d make something for me. Maybe incorporate some into an embroidery piece.
I love the mustard addition here and your sweet stories of your grandmother! Don’t enter me in the drawing though- we are moving and I don’t need more scraps to move! (:
Growing up my mother would made me a few. ERY special dresses using Liberty, and so my love for the delicate, intricate, and sumptuous fabrics was born. Today one of my passions is to play with and mix up patterns and colors in funky and quirky ways, to create one-of-a kind projects for my own daughter and loved ones!
I would love to make wonky stars with them! I love the silky hand of Liberty and pet it any time I see it in a shop or at a show! Your quilt is stunning! Pineapple blocks are on my list as well. So many wonderful option! ❤️
Wow! I love love love the way the mustard sashing makes the blocks stand out! I laughed at how your messy room stresses out your husband, we are the exact same. haha at least they don’t mind too much! I can’t wait to see the finished quilt! I want to try hand quilting a quilt one day. I’ve been working on a Christmas quilt for a couple of years and I think the thicker stitch of perle cotton would be perfectly charming!
Gorgeous! That mustard color is just perfect. I have plans for a double gauze/liberty quilt that scraps would be perfect for.
I would use Liberty scraps as accents on small linen zipper bags. I am continually inspired by all of the talented makers I see on blogs and instagram.
What a beauty! I love all of the different prints and the dashing is a favorite color of mine I’m working slowly on a quilt top using my various collected yellow fabrics. These scraps will fit in nicely with the other scraps an prints Im using. Liverty is such a lovely fabric and hard to find in Montana!
First, this quilt is beautiful!!!! Second, with the scraps, I would assemble them into a piece of fabric that I will then cut into the skirt portion of a dress for my granddaughter. I love scrappy. She loves dresses. It’s a winning combination and always one of her favorite dresses.
I’ve got an ongoing hexie project where each block is a different fabric (king size, I’m crazy!) and a bag of liberty scraps would be perfect for that!
You are so incredibly talented. both as a quilter/sewist, but as a writer as well. I also have very fond memories of both my Grandmas, and learned so much from both of them. A bit of knitting from one, and horsemanship and great kindness from the other. I am still working on my sewing and quilting skills, but so love to see what others have created! Many blessings to you and yours!
It’s an amazing heirloom! A lbor of love for sure ..and, I love the story of your Grandma ❤️…So GREAT!!!!
This is such a beautiful quilt (that doesn’t really do it justice at all)! I love to get on Pinterest and look through my old sewing books, when I’m in search of inspiration, but like you, a clean sewing room really inspires me and helps me to figure out which project to tackle next.
Hi Meredith, your pineapple quilt is just beautiful. You are inspiring to me. Everything you make, I want to try. I’ve never quilted before but would love to learn. The clothing you make for yourself and your daughter is lovely, as well.
I think I would make an improv piece for the dr bag we’re making for a class. I think it would be neat for it To be colorful
Stunning quilt!! Brings happy memories of my childhood when Mum used Liberty fabric to make a dress occasionally for me, beautifully smocked, she loved smocking my dresses. I would make a traditional quilt, no planned pattern as yet but one which would turn back the years for me.
So beautiful Meredith! Observing nature – especially flowers and birds inspires me. I’m always amazed by the textures and colors I find.
I’m inspired by beautiful prints and trying out new to me blocks. I’m planning an irish chain that may get started this year made out of Liberty Tawn Lawn and I would use these scraps for that project.
Wow, your quilt is so beautiful. Well done you! I enjoyed reading what you said about your grandmother. My grandfather has two quilts made by his mother, a lady who passed when I was a baby, sadly. One is beautiful, a riot of pattern and colour all blues and greens. But it’s the other one my grandfather keeps on his bed. It’s made of tiny scraps from all sorts of things: sheets, family clothing, the cloths that the cheese came wrapped in (they have little cows). And it’s hand knotted. This was not a show quilt, it was never meant to be seen really and certainly not preserved. It was made to keep someone warm on a cold Appalachian night, to be used until it no longer could serve at all. And I’m sure I assign all sorts of silly romantic notions to that quilt, but still, it seems really truly a mother’s love, the one that’s been worn to scraps.
What inspires me is your beautiful, stunning quilt!!!!!
I am inspired by nature, the seasons and my garden. I am not the worlds greatest Gardner but it gives me so much pleasure. And of course my children inspire me too.
Your quilt is beautiful! Thanks for the opportunity to get a few wonderful scraps.
This is such a beautiful piece of work. I love the mix of traditional and modern you’ve captured with the block design contrasted with the prints. The mustard is a great design choice and really makes the blocks pop. I currently am aspiring to a time I create with colour so well! I’d love to be entered in the draw! Thank you! x
I’d make a baby quilt for my sister-in-law.
I enjoy making small bags for sewing and for quick gifts. Beautiful quilt!,
I would use scraps to make some blocks for a new picnic blanket. Or to make some new pouches out of. I’ve never had any Liberty fabric before!
I’ve been collecting liberty scraps to make a quilt for my grandbaby….which is not in existence yet…but I want to be ready. This should be a great addition for sure.
Your quilt is amazing! I am inspired by your use of the mustard print as sashing and border – I never would have thought to do that but it is perfect.
I would love to win the liberty bag of scraps and make a little baby quilt for my first baby! I’m due in August : )
Wow Meredith! Your post is so timely for me! I’m in LOVE withLiberty fabric & have just started to collect it over the last several months. I have mulled & thought about the perfect pattern. Your pineapples are lovely! I sure could use more Liberty! I’ve saved your post & know I’ll look at the photos again & again for inspiration! Cheers!
Your quilts inspire me! I have a few fat quarters of liberty and have been saving them for a quilt someday. It would be great to add your scrapes to my stash. I would be closer to my goal of a liberty quilt.
Funny, I have red hair and green eyes, mustard Capel is “one” of my all time favourite Liberty fabrics and I love the beautiful scrappy style of this quilt. Some of those blocks look truely 3D in the photos, it’s like you can look in to the heart of them.
I love all things Liberty and am about to start a challenge quilt , all 5” blocks, that are scrappy, quirky and open to my own interpretation, so looking forward to the freedom this quilt allows.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful Pineapple quilt and the gorgeous inspiration, delightful to read.
Thanks Suzie Price
(IG – RubyMio)
I would love to make another scrappy quilt!!
Your quilt is ah-mazing. I know what I’d pick for backing… [wink wink]…
If I won those delicious scraps I’d add them to my sweet saved and gifted Liberty to finally have enough to make my own lap sized patchwork quilt [or Dresdens? ]…
Ahh, reading about your grandmother and her purple pansies brings up memories of my grandmother! She loved pansies too; I miss her. Liberty scraps! What would I do? A scrappy quilt, hopefully bridging old and new traditions.
I love your quilt! I also love Liberty fabrics, but I don’t have very many. I’m trying to collect some so that I can eventually make a quilt. I’m inspired by beautiful fabrics, projects made by others and nature. Thanks for the giveaway.
I’d love to piece them together for a quilt for my girl!
GORGeous quilt, girl! I found this post extra touching as my Grandmother was also an amazing quilter and I share many of the same feelings.
This is so beautiful!! What a work of art! I’d use it for fabric covered buttons or bias tape or a contrast placket or pocket.
Oh my goodness! Seeing all of those beautiful blocks of different prints and patterns really gets my heart racing. There’s just something about the beautiful colors and details of Liberty, am I right? I’d love to see each of those blocks up close. Truly, your quilt is a work of art.
I have been wanting to make some Christmas ornaments. The ornaments I have in mind lend themselves perfectly to using fabric scraps, I believe they are called quilted ball ornaments. I’d love to try my hand at a few different quilt blocks, or make a pacifier clip for my new baby. Any excuse to pepper some Liberty around my house certainly gets my creative juices going. Thanks for doing this giveaway and sharing the beautiful things you make with us!
Love this quilt! If I had a gallon of liberty scraps, I would start working on the Jen Kingwell long time gone pattern. It’s been begging me to start working on it.
Beautiful fabric inspires me and the people I love. I would make a quilt for someone in my family. I have made many blankets and simple quilts for my boys, my parents, in-laws neices and nephews and siblings. Especially for new babies, birthdays or recovery from surgery.
I love your quilt and hope that I can do something as lovely in the future!
Firstly, your quilt is absolutely beautiful and will look even better with perle hand quilting. The sashing Liberty Capel in mustard is one of my favourites, and really makes your pineapple blocks pop. I am hand stitching a liberty and vintage hexagon quilt, and would use your scraps to add to my quilt( this one is for me).
Thank you for this giveaway.
What inspires me are creators like you who post pictures of your lovely creations which I just have to replicate usually with a twist of my own. I’d love to try my own pineapple block or two with these scraps. Thanks for the generous giveaway.
Hi Meredith! I just love this quilt! It reminds me of the ones my Grandmother pieced by hand. I have several of her old quilts. If I win this, and oh how I would love to, I think I would use the scraps to hand piece a sweet quilt for my sofa. Thank you for the giveaway!
I love scraps & I would use the scrap bag for a quilt! I am inspired by people/places/things & would love to win.
This quilt is soooooooo beautifully yummy!!! ❤️❤️❤️!! All colors (especially reds) and nature inspire my creative side. With a big ol’ bag of Liberty I have a gazillion projects in mind, but the first two would be a kimono quilt for my sister in law and a hexie EPP quilt. Maybe some scrappy sundresses for my nieces and a bow tie or two for my nephew, too!!
Such a gorgeous quilt!! A Liberty scrap quilt is so expressive with it’s wild color splashes and I’d love to make one!!
I am so thankful for the creativity that you have and the inspiration that you have enjoyed from Nanny. She would be so proud to see all of your handiwork. I just wish the creativity wouldn’t have to skipped over me, but the Lord has gifted me with other things for which I am thankful. I love you!
This is an amazing top! I am currently collecting liberty scraps to someday have enough to make a wedding quilt for us <3
Lovely quilt top would love to win❤️
I’ve been following you for years and this is so gorgeous. I’d use the scraps for some epp, I’m new to the craft but love how small bits can be hand sewn together. I’m inspired by the giving at the end… The fact that I can make something to hand to someone I love that’s a physical mark of hours of thinking about them.
I am about to make a lawn/voile scrap quilt & think that these would make a marvelous addition. (I have Heather Ross, Cotton + Steel, Carolyn Friedlander, and a few others – so these would actually be a welcome addition!)
Olivia , your quilt has inspired me to made a pineapple block quilt myself,the mustard really makes it pop so beautiful. I also love the liberty shirts you have made yourself… I need to start making clothes. I love liberty fabric , I only discover it last year. Love your posts on Instagram
This is so gorgeous. I will one day make a Liberty quilt (probably a Grandmother’s Garden). I have quilts made for me by both my grandmothers and they are so treasured, and one of the things that inspired me to start quilting in the first place. I’ve always felt that a Grandmother’s Garden quilt would be a great homage to them both. Would love to have some more scraps to add to the project pile.
That mustard Capel was the perfect choice for sashing!
I’m inspired by the people in my life. I always find when I think up a project that the perfect recipient comes immediately to mind. Lately, I’ve also been inspired by the relationship between solids and prints. Solids are such a pure and intense “pigment” to add to a project whereas prints act more as a blending tool.
I love, love, love your quilt(and all things Liberty). I would love to start my own if I had your scraps!
Oops… and my girls and I would love to get creative with all your scraps.
I’ve never quilted anything before, but maybe I could piece these together and use it for a little quilted vest! That sound like a lot of fun.
I’m a big fan of scraps, use scraps making mini blocks. This quilt is beautiful.
Hi! I m not in the states but know someone who is and who would love these! Her ig is @jdjordan and she s just recently fell in love with these fabrics…as have i, head over heels ❤️❤️❤️ I don t know what she ll be making, i d just looove to surprise her!! Fingers crossed
Your quilt is beautiful! What makes it even more beautiful in my opinion is the story along with it; feeling your grandma with you as if quilting is in your DNA. I feel a similar connection when I sew as I sew at times on the machine my mom taught me to sew on and I am also teaching my own girls to sew on. Regarding which project I would make with the scraps from your quilt: I would incorporate them into a quilt that we can all use as a family while we snuggle together and read stories.
@jdjordan24 that is…
Your quilt is stunning! I purchased a fat quarter bundle of liberty over a year ago and have been to afraid to cut into it not wanting to ruin it. Silly, I know. The pineapple quilt is perfect for showcasing all of the prints. I have decided to make a mini quilt a month to hang in my sewing space that I just finished painting and organizing. The walls are bare and need some
color. I would make a mini pineapple quilt to hang in that space.
Oh my gosh, can you say georgous, it takes my breath away!!! The mustard fabric does ma,e the blocks just pop! I have always been very conservative in my fabric choices until I got a daughter in law that loves brightly colored fabric. She loves the quilts that I have made for her and uses them, which thrills me. Thankful that she made me step out of my comfort zone. Thanks so much for the chance to win your scrapbag!!!!
I love the Capel you used for the sashing! I bought a meter when I was in London and I *think* I’m going to make a shirt with it once I try making a few other clothes, then use the scraps in a quilt! Good fabric definitely inspires me! :)
This is beautiful! I’ve always wanted to do something with Liberty fabrics after I did my study abroad in London. Unfortunately when I was there I ran out of money and had to come home without any pretty Tana Lawn. I would probably make an abstract wall hanging, or if the scraps we’re large enough, a Union Jack quilt. Thanks for sharing!
This quilt is a stunner! The colors and pattern are so vibrant in their scrappy goodness. That same mustard yellow has recently become a favorite of mine to use, almost as a neutral. I love the connection you have with your grandmother through this quilt. I was fortunate to grow up with both of mine. My kids were able to spend a little time with one before she recently passed. The machine I sew on belonged to my mother’s mother. Right now, I am working on making quilts for family as Christmas presents. While I was not able to sew with my grandmother, I definitely feel her inspiration with me as I sew on her Singer (and in the kitchen as she was an incredible cook). Soon, I’ll be teaching my daughter to sew on this same machine. Can’t wait to see this all quilted up and ready for snuggling under.
I’m new and haven’t even made a quilt yet. I’m still buying supplies. I only have salvaged fabric right now. So I’ve been very inspired by Tula Pink, The Midnight Quilt Show, The Crafty Gemini and the unboxing of subscription quilt boxes. So basically Im a utube follower. Then I tried to add a large variety of people on Facebook and Instagram. Unfortunately I don’It have any quilting friends/buddies to collab and critique with. So far I have tried to pick out the best way to start quilting with simple patterns and simple fabrics for practice. I have not purchased any fabric yet either. I like bright, colorful, busier styles and patterns but just going to start with 5 inch blocks that I’m going to make with fabric I have found and cut up. Then maybe 2.5 inch blocks for a throw and then a larger quilt with 10 inch squares.
Hi Meredith! Thanks for this thoughtful and beautiful post, and the story of your grandmother. I was very close to my grandmother too, and so many things I sew remind me of her. Your quilt is stunning. I’m sure that looking at each fabric in each block will bring you happiness whenever you use the quilt. I love liberty fabrics, and I would use scraps for making quilt blocks also. I’d use tiny scraps for zipper pouches too. Thanks for the generous giveaway! I can’t believe that your are parting with even the smallest scrap of this precious fabric!
I would love to make some economy blocks out of your Liberty scraps!! :)
I would love some liberty scraps! As for inspiration, I love vintage prints and quilts. I especially the old feedback florals. I have never seen the Liberty prints anywhere in my local quilt shops. When I first saw them online, it was instant love. Pretty please pick me!!! ❤️❤️
I’d make a scrappy quilt for my niece – to be born in April!
Your bold use of color is stunning! I admit to being afraid to work with Liberty, afraid I might ruin it or something equally silly. But I do admire the brand. I think i’d begin a epp quilt with a bag full of scraps.
Meredith, I’m always amazed by your artistic eye. Never would I have thought of that mustard print as a cohesive neutral, but there you go convincing me and everyone else that it is! It’s just perfect. You’re always thinking outside the box. This blog post really showcases not just the “how” but the “why” that went into this quilt. So many makers are trying to sell us something rather than share something and it shines through in how they talk at us. When you write about your creations you always give us a glimpse into your soul.
As for what I’d make with a gallon of your beautiful Liberty scraps? Right now I have zero sew-jo, so I’d probably pet them and hope some of the creativity you infused them with rubs off on me! There’s a Liberty improve thing that’s been floating around in my head and these would be killer!
My grandmother is my biggest inspiration as well. We lived with her for many years and our home had one heater so I would cover with 2 or 3 quilts at night. I loved her quilts so much and now that I’m a a Nana I create quilts for my granddaughter that she can cuddle under and have those memories as well. I love your quilts and Liberty fabrics. I’ve started a small stash and eventually plan on making my granddaughter a quilt from them.
Thank you for the giveaway! Liberty prints are dreamy. I can see making a wall hanging with liberty and linen.
First of all, your quilt is magnificent! …. truly a labor of love. I have no idea how many scraps there are but two projects would be some BORO type bags and/or a small baby quilt for my brand new niece. Thank you!
Your scrappy quilt is so gorgeous. I haven’t had the opportunity to make a scrappy quilt yet because I don’t have scraps lol. I would love the challenge of being able to make a quilt completely from these amazing scraps. Quilting keeps me sane actually, it brings me peace.
Your pineapple quilt top is gorgeous! So much love went into it, I can tell. I’d try this pineapple block with the scraps, it’s been on my list and I’d love to try it!
Wow! Your quilt is beautiful!!! I love the vintage look it has. I would love to work with your scraps! Funny, I seem to do more with scraps than with the yardage in my closet. I love figuring out how to use up even the tiniest pieces. I would most likely work them into a quilt
I really like what you did with your liberty fabric. It can get expensive and I have a few fat sixteenth bundle. Hopefully if I win the scrap I’ll get to make something as gorgeous as your quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.
Congratulations on finishing your pineapple quilt top…it is amazing!! I adore reading all your blog posts, thanks for sharing your creativity with us. I’m currently doing the hand quilt along with Kristin Esser and using all my favorite fabrics for the first selfish sewing I’ve done in sooo long. Each block brings a lot of joy. I might add your scraps to my hand pieced project. The other project I might use it on is a quilt I’m planning for a cousin who is graduating from college in May.
This is absolutely beautiful! And, I love that you have a connection with your grandma. That’s who taught me to love needle and thread too! I’d love to add some of your scraps to my never ending hexi project. One day I hope to finish it….
I have slowly come to live Liberty Fabrics and would live to use them in an EPP hexi quilt or pillow.
The mustard Capel is a firm favourite of mine and I have just ordered a few yards of it, I’m thinking our bed deserves a good set of Liberty pillow cases and a quilt to match.
I’m busy making pouches to send out to friends I don’t know in the universe, weird but wonderful. Happy sewing
My granddaughter’s 4th birthday is the last day of this month and she will be getting her first American Girl doll! I would most likely use the scraps to make a doll quilt! Thanks so much for the generous giveaway!
This is such a stunning quilt… and it must feel even more beautiful than it looks! I would love to use some scraps for a little pouch or bag!
Oh my goodness…this quilt is pretty inspiring! I am also inspired by nature. I live near the beach and the mountains! I see all kinds of weather and all four seasons! I am lucky to live where I do!
PS…I’d use the scraps to make an amazing quilt to hang in my home. I love using quilts as art…you can be so creative and they are easily changed when you feel like it!
working with scraps is my creativity catalyst!
I’d love to be the holder of these!
I came to enter from seeing your mom post it ok Facebook. I have seen your page before and you truly are gifted in these things. I’m in the very beginning of getting familiar even with my sewing machine and have used it with help of a sweet older sister to hem a dress of mine. I’d love the material though to put together a simple piece, I’m undecided what though since I’m inexperienced but have really been wanting to develop a skill in sewing things together. Any ideas would be great! I do have a sweet nextdoor neighbor to ask for help as I’ve seen her make nice skirts for her daughter and granddaughters.
Beautiful quilt! Good use of darks and lights to offer enough contrast. I like your take on a “neutral” with the print. It’s got me thinking about trying different things in my own quilts.
Beautiful Quilt! I’ve always wanted to make a pineapple quilt, and now after seeing yours I’m inspired. I have similar memories of my Aunt who passed away too soon, from Breast Cancer. I sew because of her, and wish she was still here so we could get together and do all the things regarding quilting, sewing and fabric shopping.
Love your quilt and your story of your Grandmother! I too am the granddaughter of a marvelous woman! She taught me to quilt and garden! They are the greatest!!! Thanks for your story!
I’d love to have a chance to create a quilt with what I win! I’d make a throw to snuggle under while I’m planning the next quilt! I like to dit n my recliner and would have a beautiful floral quilt to keep me warm this winter!
I really like what you did. I am going to try to make one.
