ABOUT THE BUNDLE
“This is one of the loveliest books on quilts I HAVE EVER SEEN. Really. Ever.” - Mary Fons
Turn on your kettle, prepare your favorite tea, and get ready to fancy some of the world’s most admired fabrics because this beautiful book is about to transport you to… London!
British author and quilter Jenni Smith, Workshop Director and dear friend to Quiltfolk, recently wrote Quilting with Liberty Fabrics: 15 Quilts Celebrating 145 Years in Fabric — a beautiful, 224 page book that is rooted deep in the history of the distinguished department store Liberty London.
Quilting with Liberty Fabrics offers more than a history lesson, though. Until Jenni, nobody had ever collaborated with Liberty to write about quilting with their highly regarded fabrics.
An art historian by trade who is passionate about all-things fabric and thread, Jenni is the first person to research and write about the “anatomy” of a Liberty print — covering 15 fascinating original quilt projects, patterns included!
Come back in time with us as Jenni celebrates the iconic designs that have made Liberty London one of the world’s most famous fabric manufacturers, and enjoy a free 5" stacker of their beautiful floral collection, Flower Show Midnight Garden.
A NOTE FROM JENNI SMITH
“Liberty has produced a number of Flower Show collections, and I absolutely love Midnight Garden, especially the cool blue and navy prints as well as the mint greens and deep purples. Well done, Quiltfolk for managing to find these beauties as I know these capsule collections sell out very quickly! Midnight Garden includes some classic archive florals reimagined by the design studio and exciting differences in scale, so it is perfect for quilting. It would work beautifully in the quilt projects in my book. Lasenby cotton is the base cloth, named after the company's founder Arthur Lasenby Liberty, and it is a real pleasure to sew with. I hope you enjoy it!”
