Liberty of London quilts

Liberty Colour Block
A baby quilt. The binding and coloured squares are all Liberty, using 5 – 8 different prints in each square. The background is neutral coloured quilting cottons. Quilted with a random feather pattern. FOR SALE – $150

 

Grandiflora
Grandiflora Liberty Selvedges, embellished with hand embroidery

Grandiflora won first prize for small quilts at QuiltWest 2016. It is a very small quilt, a mere 12.5″ x 15″ (32cm x 37cm) about table mat size. As the full title implies, it is mainly made from the selvedges of Liberty Tana lawn.

Sunset on Lake Neuchatel  March 2016

This quilt is #4 in a series of Liberty strip quilts that were inspired by a cycling tour around Lake Neuchatel in Switzerland.  It is an impressionistic view of the lake at sunset.

Fara's quiltb
Farah’s quilt ~ 40″ x 50″

I used a pattern called Trouble with Tribbles from a quilting book Rocky Mountain Sparkler.  It was with some difficulty that I reduced the block size from 16″ square to 10″ square.  As the block construction was dependant on four seams of 1/4″ reducing the cut strips by a total of 2″, the math no longer worked.  I got there in the end.

Stephanie’s quilt 36″ x 48″ – June 2008

Stephanie’s quilt was made from the left-over scraps of Farah’s quilt with many extra 1.5″ squares added.  It is my original design.

Gwen’s other quilt  ~ 60″ x 80″  2003

For this quilt, the neutral background pieces are not Liberty, all the coloured pin-wheels are Liberty Tana lawn.  You can tell that I really like this design. I have made it about four times in this full sized version.  That is, the blocks are 16″ square.
