Liberty of London Quilt

I've been hoarding fabric again, this time it was Liberty of London tana lawns.  They are beautiful, colorful, and soft.  Since the fabric is pretty spendy, I have collected small pieces, and joined in on a swap, where we all bought one yard, cut it into fat eighths, and traded them, so we all got lots of different pieces.  It was a good way to do it!

So, after all of that, I decided on a quilt pattern.  This pattern was perfect for small pieces, and the overall design has a big impact.  The pattern is from a book by Sarah Fielke called Hand Quilted with Love.  I'm a huge fan of Sarah's patterns!  This went together so well.
Along with the Liberty of London fabric, I needed a neutral.  I decided on Robert Kaufman Essex Linen in Natural.  It is linen, so it's somewhat rough feeling, and I liked the difference in the feel of them.  It gives it lots of texture.
My friend Christina who blogs at The Sometimes Crafter, quilted it for me.  I love her feathers, and she did a beautiful job, thanks Christina!
I am keeping this quilt for me, I love it!  Do you have some Liberty of London fabric, what are you doing with it??

Wow- I love this quilt! great job. I have some of that Liberty Lifestyle fabric and it is SO amazing- the prints are impeccable. I made an X Plus quilt and I still have quite a bit leftover.

This is beautiful and a great combination of fabrics! I have a stash of Liberty I have been collecting and have yet to decide what it will become- hopefully this is the year!

I'm about to make a quilt with the same
Fabrics. When you washed it did the linen shrink funny?
