I had the immense pleasure of working with one of my all time favorite Liberty prints once again over the past couple of weeks. A client requested a custom quilt with this Queue for the Zoo Liberty fabric as the “theme” print, and I went from there.
I paired it with this metallic dot from Dear Stella, some Handcrafted and Sunprint from Alison Glass, some voiles from Anna Maria Horner, and of course, some other coordinating Liberty prints.
I spent much of last week quilting it, and really trying to draw out that bright purple, which is her favorite color.
Alison Glass’ Bike Path print made for the perfect binding! The color is spot on, and I love that it really pops.
I’m finishing up another hand quilted quilt for Market next week. Its taking much longer than I initially thought it would because it turns out that I get very little accomplished when Wallace takes two naps a day totaling one hour. I’m praying that changes! I NEED that boy to rest. :)
Anyway, if all goes according to plan, I have lots to share with you this week, including a post on sewing with Liberty. It can be really intimidating to cut into such a beautiful (and expensive) fabric, but with the right notions and careful planning, you’ll do just fine! Then you’ll have to convince yourself to tone down all the Liberty sewing.
Did you have a great long weekend?
Wow- this quilt is perfect in every way. I love your choice of the gold dotted fabric for sashing the Liberty print. I am a big fan of the quilting cotton “Lifestyle” Liberty prints that came out within the last few years- I am dying to know if they’ll be doing it again anytime soon because the prints were gorgeous and affordable!
Love love love! Such gorgeous saturated colours Meredith! Particularly love your hand stitching – perfection!,
so pretty and pink!!
Beautiful, I really love the colours. x
Would you mind sharing the dimensions of the blocks? I’m working on a similar project but can’t seem to get the math right to make the patch blocks match the bigger blocks. Beautiful quilt!!
[…] hope the brand new baby loves her quilt just as much as her big sis loved hers! It was so special for me to be able to make this, and I can say with certainty it is one of my […]
Do uou know the name of this patern?
This is a pattern I just made. I’m happy to tell you all the block dimensions if it helps! The sixteen patch blocks are made up of 16 2.5″ (unfinished) squares that end up at 8.5″ unfinished. The two fabric blocks are made up of a 4.5″ center (unfinished) square 2 2.5×4.5″ (unfinished) strips on either side, and 2 2.5″x8.5″ strips on the top and bottom which also ends up as an 8.5″ unfinished block. I hope that helps!
i AM crazy about Christmas and think this pattern would look great in Christmas fabrics.
I love this!!!! Do you have a pattern?
No pattern, but a few comments before this I told Michelle just how to make it! :)
