A note from Liberty:
The Flower Show quilting collections from Liberty Fabrics celebrate the ‘Best in Show’, bringing together botanical designs from across liberty’s iconic print archive.
Drawing inspiration from the glory and tradition of classic British flower shows, the collection features diverse flower forms united in a cacophony of colour, illustrating Liberty’s rich heritage of floral design.
The Flower Show midsummer collection takes us on a walk around a sunlit wildflower meadow, where light sky blues, sunshine yellows and bright pops of red and pink complement darker tones of rich greens and inky blues. The result is a bold and playful palette, guaranteed to bring any crafting project into full bloom.
The collection is traditionally screen printed onto Lasenby cotton, a base specifically developed for quilting and craft projects.
The collection consists of 15 prints including – Hampstead Meadow (in two shades), Forget Me Not Blossom (in two shades), Arley Garden, Mary Rose, Emily Silhouette Flower, Cosmos Flower, Hampstead Meadow, Wildflower Field, Field Rose, Chelsea Flower, Mamie, Malvern Meadow, Kensington Gardens and Suffolk Fields. We at The Stitchery Dorset have metreage and pre-cuts/bundles of the whole range, available within the cotton fabrics section of our shop.
Lasenby Cotton – Designed specifically for quilting, our soft Lasenby cotton base is suitable for a range of creative projects, including bedspreads, cushions and cosies. It is machine washable and durable enough for daily use, with each richly coloured design created using traditional screen-printing techniques.
