I think I may have mentioned this a time or two, but I am a sucker for Liberty fabric. They’re so timeless and beautiful – especially the prints on the gorgeous tana lawns. I’ve started collecting little pieces this year and my collection is steadily growing. One of the things I am most excited for our trip to England this summer is to visit the actual Liberty store in London. The store is an iconic Tudor-revival building in the heart of one of London’s poshest fashion districts and full of beautiful haberdashery. (How’s that for a great British word?)
So when the official Liberty Craft Blog contacted me this week to ask if they could interview me I was SO honored – not to mention a little star-struck! You can read my interview with Liberty here! (Post Update: It looks like the Liberty Craft Blog is no longer available. 🙁 )
Liberty fabrics are best known for their Tana Lawns – a very soft, lightweight cotton – printed with predominantly floral designs. They’re a little pricier than most quilting cottons – hence the reason I’m collecting little bits at a time. The colors and prints are so beautiful and timeless.
I’m so excited to visit Liberty and I’ll share more about my adventure there in a future post. You can buy Liberty fabrics directly from the Liberty website. Here are a few other options in the states: my pieces are fat 16ths from Westwood Acres monthly Liberty club (which is sold out but has a waiting list). Westwood Acres is offering pre-orders of Liberty 2 1/2” strips. Other Liberty sources with a good Liberty selection include DuckaDilly Fabrics and Pink Castle Fabrics.
