When I held the first tana lawn cotton fabrics in my hand I knew I wanted more! The fabric is so soft but strong, has wonderful designs and colours. I decided to order more at Alice Caroline – the online shop offers a very good Liberty fabric selection and excellent service.
Since some time I was thinking of making two new quilts for the summer. So the first selection ist done – I have now 33 different Liberty London fabrics in fat or long quarters. The next part was to select a matching background fabric. I want to repeat the pattern on both quilts but just change the background colour.
My first choice is Kona solid in silver for one quilt. For the second quilt I wanted to use Kona solid mustard. But mustard would “eat” the pretty yellow Liberty patterns. Since I have started using Kona solids, I have made a sample chart with fabric colours and names. I picked out of this chart eggshell – it is not white, not yellow, not beige. And it is a same soft shade as the Kona solid in silver and both colors match nicely together.
Next time some photos of the quilt top progress! Happy quilting,
33 Liberty fabrics! I’m sure the company appreciates your support. Of course, they are and feel lovely. I used to have dresses made of Tana lawn, and pieces of them have made it into some of my work.
I was also thinking to make a dress or top, but first I want to finish the two quilts. Still playing with the final design.
Ohhhhh wowie wow. So so so pretty Barbora. This is going to be beautiful
Thanks for visiting, already started piecing some blocks! It is really exciting to work with theses special fabrics.
