Liberty of London


This is Rae’s quilt which she made for her daughter in law who picked these Liberty of London fabrics.   I had never seen this fabric line before and it is beautiful.  Lots of tiny floral prints in soft colours.    Rae didn’t use a pattern and cut the fabrics into squares then added a white sashing.   I picked the Wave on Wave pantograph, used white So Fine thread on top and white Bottom Line on the back.


The backing is a white Cuddle and Rae purchased a thin white poly batting to keep the white fabrics nice and bright! It also works well with the Cuddle to keep the quilt light.


The snow has been melting and most is gone in the yard but of coarse now we are now under a ‘Winter Storm Watch” for the Friday and Saturday. We could get up to 20- 30 cm of fresh snow!


  1. A simply elegant quilt. The lacy gray ice looks like a well chosen final border. And snow now? It's getting close to May. April showers and spring flowers and all that. Is this normal for you?

    1. Yes, snow in April common! We don't dare plant flowers until June! The ice is on the lake until mid May and one good snowfall can happen in early May as well. We basically just go from Winter to Summer!

  2. Simple and lovely! And the ice!

  3. ...and I always you wash these quilts after they've been laying outside?!

  4. I love your quilting of course, but that ice just blows me away!
