Liberty Value Quilt- #myquiltcouldlivehere
I haven’t made a new #myquiltcouldlivehere collage in a while. Yesterday I started a new online course on Interior Design (for fun, I’m not going to be an interior designer). I guess it inspired me to make a new one!
I made this Liberty Value Quilt as the sample for my online class, Make Modern Scrap Quilts Using Color Value. Even though I’ve made many value quilts, many that would work as a sample to show what to expect in the class, I wanted to do a new sample in real time, along with the class. Half square triangles are nothing new to quilters. But that simple block can be very impactful they can be in the right mix, played with in a thoughtful way. I wanted to show that even though you may be a fan of Liberty fabrics, or Kaffe Fassett fabrics, or Anna Maria’s fabrics, your quilt can still look original and like your own design. This class gives you the tools to understand your own design aesthetic, and not just follow a pattern and fill in the blanks.
So last night I thought about where this quilt would live and it got me inspired all over again. I thought, well, English Country, of course. It is Liberty of London. Warm wood tones mixed with hand-me-down furniture with interesting previous lives. This quilt could be used in any room of the house, because something about it would go with any look or feel.
