Liberty Quilt

I am playing around with layout for this Liberty Quilt which I am nearly finished the stitching on ....



It is a Rae Telfer pattern called "Luscious Lollypops" and I bought it ages ago when visiting Millrose Cottage in Ballan, Victoria ....



I love the Liberty fabrics included and have added a couple of my own just because I love them !


Some of my favourites .....


I am blanket stitching around the outside of the appliqué circles in a colour which is as close to the background fabrics as I can find ....



The beautiful background fabrics were included in the kit too .... such a bonus !!


Beautiful fabrics to work with .... as any Liberty fan will know ....




And I'm hoping to finish this off in the next week or so ..... so I can get on to other projects ....




I'm planning on not wasting a minute of my retirement !!!



My current plan is fitness in the mornings (swimming, pilates, yoga, walking, walking, walking) and relaxation and spending time in my sewing room in the afternoons .... so far it is working quite well !!

  1. What a perfect retirement plan. Sounds very similar to my plan, but my problem is that is doesn’t always go to plan!! Love your liberty quilt.
