Liberty, Liberty

Oh my! This parcel landed on my front door late yesterday from Gail.....and I can't stop saying "Oh my!".


I've been going positively green over her collection of Liberty. And likewise, she had been eyeing my stash of japanese fabrics. Et voila! A swap was born (in the middle of some late night emailing).


Dufus me forgot to take a photo of the parcel I sent her, so you'll just have to more than make do with these beauties.


These are even better than I expected, such a smooth texture, almost like washed silk. And blimey, they smell nice!


I reckon they'll look very pretty added to a bit of patchwork.....maybe a little quilt.


Aussie peeps, you can get Liberty locally at Patchwork on Central Park. I can see myself going for a bit of a spree on these fabrics the next time I get down to Melbourne......now that I've seen what they're like. Because they definitely live up to the hype.

Thank you very much, Gail!

Oh no, I feel a Liberty splurge coming on. And just when I was thinking of implementing your fabric diet idea! Thanks for providing a source (always wondered where to get Liberty in Oz).

Oh they are just gorgeous. Very different to the Liberty prints from when I first used to sew.
Lucky girl.

Nice smelling, soft feeling, inspirational fabrics, you lucky girl! I received some African fabrics lately and they had a spicy smell. Funny he?

I just love liberty - it does feel different doesn't it.

I have bought two pieces in my life and they will be going into a quilt that will be for my sister. (Maybe their might be scraps to make something for me with).

Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Oh yummy, yummy - how are those apples!! I bought a little bit of Liberty for Chloe's quilt and it was the only one she didn't like! It's going in it though and she will understand when she's a bit older - I hope!

Jude said...

Ooooooohh. I can't decide which one is my favourite. I love them all. I think the fruity one. No the bow one. Yup all of them for sure.

WooHoo! Excellent Swap!!! The fabrics look great.

Gail said...

You're most welcome my dear, and thank you for the Japanese very-good-goodies you sent me - will hopefully get photos up once I find the camera and get home in daylight. Sheesh, you'd think nobody had ever moved house in the history of the world ;-)
