Liberty of London… and a Quilt!



Hello Friends!

Today I’m going to talk about something that I really don’t know that much about!  Well… that’s with all things I guess.  But this one I REALLY don’t know much.  But I’ve been asking questions and reading history and here it is.

    I love these fabrics as well! Just FYI, you wrote the fabric is called Tana lawn. I believe the fabric is lawn and Tana is the name of a print pattern,0 just like your Betsy.

    I love liberty fabrics!!!!! I first saw it in London years ago. J Crew makes dresses out of it and I drool over them

      Hi Edee! Oh my word, I would LOVE to visit the Liberty store in London. And yes, I’ve seen some Liberty dresses in J Crew as well. You know what I think? That they would be timeless and last forever. So we need to buy one right? 🙂

    What a lovely project! The Liberty prints are scrumptious and your companion fabric perfect. I will love seeing your finished quilt.

    What beautiful fabrics! I’ve just started a Block of the Month with QuiltFolk magazine. One of the presenters, Jenni Smith, lives in northern England and was talking about Liberty Fabrics. I’ve made many quilts, but never used Liberty – it’s now on my quilting bucket list. Your nine patch is going to be a family heirloom!

  5. This is going to be so beautiful! Love the print you put with it, how perfect! I have been aware of LOL fabric, but honestly didn’t know the history behind I!

  6. Can’t begin to tell you how much I love Liberty, but you are right, it is very expensive. I make pillowcases from a yard and a quarter. Love sleeping on that silky fabric. And it is strong and, of course, washes beautifully. Your Betsy Quilt is adorable. I may try a similar one this summer when I am back in Minnesota. Because I make pillowcases for myself, my sister, and my granddaughters, I rarely have small pieces or scraps, but will see what I can do. Thanks for sharing such a fun project.

    My favorite store in the entire world is the Liberty of London store in London, England. Portions of a ship used to bring the cotton back to England was dismantled and form the inside of the store. I could have spent the entire day in the store, looking at the gorgeous inventory!
