Starting on the 7th of August – book your boarding pass now!
We are hosting an Instagram Sew-along for our NEW trip around the block/world style quilt, Liberty Love Around the World. We thought it would be a wonderful way to connect and ‘travel’ around with all of our friends and customers, given the current situation with lockdowns around the world meaning we can’t actually travel.
It has been designed with our Liberty Club members in mind, although anyone who purchases the pattern is welcome to Sew-Along with us. This quilt can be made using our Liberty Fat 16th Bundles, with a few little add ons for dividing blocks and centres.
The Sew-along will run for 12 months – making use of the 12 x club bundles that will be released in that time.
The quilt will end up being a large throw size – approximately 55″ x 73″.
This is a digital mock up of the layout and colours you can expect to see coming together as you construct your quilt. The beautiful rainbow palette in the design is based on 12 months worth of Love Liberty Club bundles.
To achieve a similar look we recommend using Betsy A for the diagonal lines and the Marie Rose Solid as your centres – Robyn has selected these as they co-ordinate nicely with each upcoming club, and the colours of these fabrics will tie all of the blocks together throughout the quilt. (We have listed these fabrics and the amounts needed on the starter kit pages!)
Robyn will be hand piecing her blocks and Jen will be using English Paper Piecing to sew along each month as well! We will provide video tutorials for both methods as part of our Sew-Along Travel Lodge that you can access when you purchase the Boarding Pass.
Each month Robyn and Jen will show you their individual block layouts using the Love Liberty Club fabrics – of course we will never reveal this too early as we don’t want to spoil the monthly fabric surprise for you. You can also supplement with fabric from your stash, purchase extra bundles, use your past club bundles – or upgrade your subscriptions to fat 8ths if you want to work twice as quickly!
