Liberty Snippets

Liberty snippets quilt top

I had been hoping to finish this quilt top by the end of last year as a finale to the Liberty Scrap Challenge  though I’m kind of pleased it has been hanging around the design wall as it has been a joy to see each time I have walked past.

Liberty snippets

Inspired by  Ashley’s Flying Farfalle quilt, I used the  smallest snippets of Liberty scraps leftover from the challenge that I couldn’t bear to part with (me, a hoarder of tiny scraps?!!!)  with the addition of some Liberty scraps that Danielle had kindly shared with me too & which were the perfect triangular shape!

The background is cut from some yardage of cotton sheeting that I got from the Opp shop. I just kept cutting & sewing until I ran out of background fabric. I love the subtle stripe of the sheeting & the crispness of it against the super soft tana lawn.

It’s just so pretty, like little scrappy butterflies fluttering across the fabric. I love it.

So…how would you quilt this….?

Oooo & don’t forget Jo has a ready supply of Liberty in bite sized pieces & beyond ;)
