Liberty love

I've had Alexia Abegg's book Liberty Love for awhile now and I really cannot say enough good things about it. It's beautiful to look at with a wide range of projects. There are bags and quilts and clothes. Things for children, women and men. And the best part? While they all contain gorgeous Liberty of London Tana Lawn fabrics, many of the projects also have other fabrics paired with the Liberty. This brings down the overall cost (that Tana Lawn can be pricey) and keeps the sewn items from looking overly floral and sweet. The projects are all solidly designed with straightforward instructions and excellent diagrams. I think it is worthwhile to add that they could be made from fabrics that aren't Liberty as well. Prime example – the Marcelle Medallion quilt. If you are on instagram, check out the hastags #medallionalong and #marcellemedallion to see what I mean. I'm *this* close to joining in on the fun.

All that said, I purchased a couple sets of Liberty scraps from esty seller PickClickSew to play with. (As an aside, Dee was a delight to work with and I highly recommend her etsy shop if you are looking for Liberty lawn). I started by making the pin cushion – mine is a bit smaller than the one in the book, but it's the same idea. It was also fast and easy. I also bought a hunk of charm squares for another project – the spools quilt that is in the book. When I will get to that, I have no idea, but I will. I love me some Liberty.
