Liberty Flower Show

Liberty’s newest quilting cotton; Spring Flower Show feels so happy with soft colors and tiny flower prints, perfect for Spring that can’t get here soon enough.

I chose one of my favorite patterns from Amy Sinibaldi’s book Sweetly Stitched Handmades, instead of making one Starburst Dresden for a pillow I went all out and made nine for a whole quilt.

The centers of each starburst are made using various low volume fabrics I had in my stash that include Blossom fabrics and other Riley Blake staples.

Somehow this quilt seems to have an instant heirloom quality to it, I’m not sure if it’s the dresden shapes or the soft tone of the background or the fact that it’s already a bit crinkly to start with but I’m happy with the look and feel.

Iv’e added a few Wiltshire Shadow fabrics into the mix here, this is a line of fabrics that were made to coordinate with all the Liberty quilting cotton lines and they really do add to the collection nicely. Plus who doesn’t love the classic Wiltshire print!

Each block measures just under 20 inches and this quilt finishes at 58 inch square with a nice heavy feel from the weight of the dresdens, perfect for snuggling under.

Beautiful colors and classic florals make for a dreamy fabric collection, I especially love the green tones in here.

I had to laugh this morning when I came downstairs to see my freshly finished quilt had already been put to use by one of my boys. Quilts are made to be used and loved, over and over again.
