I heart Liberty

I never seem to tire of those Liberty prints, no not one bit. I like them best in little bits.

As bias trim

Or a little decorative applique.

Perhaps just peeping out.

All that floral joy just makes me smile.

So when I came across a stack of pre-cut Liberty hearts on eBay, they simply had to be mine.

A chain of hearts, to cheer my window pane view of February.

My two (only two! I was very hard up!) maternity dresses, back in 1971 were A-line, Liberty print affairs, made by my mother. Nice, but oh how I tired of them! I was only too pleased to make dusters of them afterwards...

Your garland of hearts is very pretty!

Lovely! I got so excited earlier when my boyfriend suggested a trip to Liberty this week when we're in London. I probably go there twice a year, but the chance to admire all those fabrics never gets old.

The advantage of liberty in little bits is that you can have lots and lots of prints--the more the merrier!

I loved this post! I do agree that there is something so delightful about little bits of Liberty fabric here and there, to catch the eye among plainer fabrics. I love how you've made the heart garland - in fact all the pictures here are beautiful. Helen x

I was lucky enough to live about 6 miles from the Liberty Mill shop in Burnley - it closed about 10 years ago, and I am still using the mountain of little bits and very large bits I got there - though I also love Sandersons, Laura Ashley, well, I love most fabrics really...! The hearts are gorgeous though!

Beautiful patters, and what a very lovely idea to create those little garlands which look so very pretty in your window!
