I loved being involved with the development of Liberty's latest quilt range The Orchard Garden.
I had my first preview back in January when the head designer Mary-Ann came up to visit my Ilkley studio. I instantly fell for a couple of the signature prints including Pheasant Forest. The design is similar to Jess & Jean on Tana Lawn with delicate details perfect for piecing into a quilt.
The first strike-offs arrived in the Spring, and we designed the Orchard Star Quilt as a free project to accompany the collection. This pattern can be downloaded from Alice Caroline's website here, where you can also buy fabrics.
I made the quilt in time for Festival of Quilts in August and I am pleased to know that it is now travelling the world at trade shows and exhibitions.
Each of the prints tells a story and you can hear all about them in my short video here.
Thanks for stopping by.
