I've wanted to make a quilt from Liberty fabric for a long long time. I had a picture in my head of a quilt made up of squares using a variety of prints and colours and the idea was to arrange them in colour waves. Given the cost of Liberty fabric, I realised that it was going to be too expensive so I put it into the 'dreams are free' category and just went about my stashing business.
Then, during one of my random ebay trawls I came upon these! (well when I say random I was typing "Liberty Fabric" into the Ebay search engine under 'quilting' fabric on a daily basis, so I guess I was bound to come up with something sooner or later!)
They are 4" squares and they are perfect for the quilt design I have in my head.I have about 400 of them all up, so it will make a decent size quilt- about 180cm square. I figure if I'm going to do it, I may as well end up with a quilt that's a good size.
Have no idea where I will find the time, but the inspiration is there! (hmmm can you buy extra quilting time on Ebay?)
