a little bit girly – a liberty patchwork quilt top

This quick little quilt top came about without any reason – mainly just because I was looking for a bit of a distraction and decided to rummage around in my fabric stash. I couldn’t resist the idea of another sweet girly quilt – something nice and lightweight for the summer.

I started with the Liberty of London prints, pulling out several on white backgrounds and a few extra pink prints to round it out. Then I added in a few light-colored text prints and some corresponding cotton couture solids and a little bit of Essex linen. I cut them all up into 4″ squares.

I really love the resulting combination – sweet, but not too sweet (thanks in part to that Cotton Couture solid in Moss, which tones down the pink), and a bit vintage-y. I plan on using the lightest weight Quilters Dream batting to keep this one nice and soft and light. The perfect patchwork quilt for a summer baby, no?

I purchased several of these Liberty of London prints as well as the Je Vous En Prie print from a new to me shop - Jones & Vandermeer. It's a lovely shop with a fun selection. I was particularly pleased with their generous cuts and quick shipping!

The other two french text prints were purchased from Ayumi's fabulous Etsy shop. Unfortunately she's out of both now, but I do recommend checking her shop periodically, as she always has interesting and unique prints!
