Celebrating: A Liberty Lawn Giveaway

5th Blogiversary

Please celebrate 5 years of Very Berry on WordPress with me. I can’t quite believe it has been so long (and I was blogging over on Blogspot for 3 or 4 years before that – so this blogging business has been going on for quite some time!). Thanks to all of you who pop round, read, contribute – it’s mostly because of you lot that I have stuck with it over the years – it’s been a real pleasure.

Moving from Folksy to Etsy…

Whilst I hope that the Very Berry blog will continue to go from strength to strength, another bit of my online life is coming to an end. For various reasons, I have decided to close Very Berry Fabrics & Handmade over on Folksy. For a while now I have been running shops on both Folksy and Etsy, but this has become just too much for me to maintain, so with some regret, I have decided to trade on Etsy only. Many apologies to all my regulars on Folksy – please come and see me on Etsy. Or you are very welcome to come to me direct by email with your requirements!

A Liberty Lawn Giveaway

To publicise this change, and, more importantly, to celebrate my Blog Birthday, I thought a giveaway was in order. The prize is membership of my Liberty Lawn Charm Square Club for 7 months. The winner of the giveaway will received twenty die cut 5″ squares once a month for 7 months, building up a collection of 140 squares (50 Liberty Lawn prints in all).  Here’s what just part of your collection will look like….

Liberty giveaway 1

If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning then just leave a comment on this blog post telling me what you might possibly do with all this Liberty loveliness (I won’t hold you to it!). If you’d like to get yourself an extra chance or 2, then feel free to share the giveaway on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), but PLEASE leave extra comments to tell me you have, or all that hard work will count for nothing! The giveaway will run until 8pm (GMT) on Wednesday 26th August, and is open to anyone, anywhere.

  1. I’m in the 505 and would make not just one but many things using these gorgeous fabrics! Thank you for the giveaway and the Very Berry Blog. See you on Etsy❤️❤️ Wish me luck!!

  2. Having made quilts for family members, if I won your giveaway, I would use the beautiful squares to make an extra special quilt for my bed.

  3. What a wonderful prize! I would start by using some for my latest project… but as it is *top secret*, I can’t tell you what it is yet! If I win, I’ll show you the photos 🙂

  4. I think I would pile them up on a shelf and gaze at them adoringly for ages before daring to use them for anything! A quilt would be the obvious choice for me though.

  5. I would love to have a go at 3D hexie bowls. They would look so pretty and hold delicate things. Congratulations on your blogaversary and thank you such a generous giveaway. Fingers crossed.

  6. Congratulations on your blogaversary. The charms would be used probably to make some lovely cushions. Thank you for a great giveaway. x

  7. Squeal! What an amazingly wonderful prize! I have some tiny patchwork in mind. Liberty prints and the super soft cotton lawn fabric would be just perfect. Crossing my fingers and toes and everything else that I may be the lucky winner!

  8. Wow amazing giveaway and CONGRATS on your blogiversary! I would LOVE to make a clamshell cushion cover for my Nana who turns 94 soon – she remembers when my (Canadian) Papa went to Liberty’s during the war to get her a small piece of Liberty fabric!

  9. What a fab prize! I would donate this as a birthday gift to one of my good friends who loves Liberty prints! 🙂

  10. Happy anniversary! I would make a simple quilt showcasing the Liberty squares by surrounding it with white fabric. Thank you!

  11. First of all, congratulations for your 5th anniversary. My blog will be 5 years old next February too! Anyway, if you have the chance to visit it you’ll see that I’ve been experimenting a lot in many different fields (sewing, crochet, beading, jewellery, etc..)…. but I haven’t tried quilting yet… So, I’d potentially use your beautiful giveaway for trying something brand new!
    I’m sure I’ll also find something cute among your tutorials! 🙂
    Keep up the great job.

  12. Oh, divine! I have shared on Twitter and Facebook for you… Xx
    For me, I have been looking adoringly at my Alice Caroline ‘Tree of Life’ pattern for nearly two years now :/ I’d love to win the fabric so that I could bring it to life before my children grow too old to have it in their room!

  13. Lovely fabric. I think I would do something using EPP. Definitely a quilt. My current passion is hexagons but I would need to use the whole square….I am sure I would have a wonderful time figuring out my dilemma. 😉

  14. Congratulations on blogging for 5 years! I only recently found your blog, but like it a lot. If I’d win, I’d make a quilt with all these gorgeous Liberty fabrics.

  15. Congratulations on 5 years, I love Liberty and hope one day to visit the shop. I would make a quilt for me, something bright to make me smile.

  16. What an amazing and generous giveaway, Im a new quilter, so I would make a small but beautiful lap quilt to use everyday, the fabric is too lovely not too. Thank you for the opportunity to enter x

  17. Hi Ali
    Congratulations on your 5th anniversary
    As you know I am a dedicated follower and hoarder of Liberty Tana lawn.
    What would I make if I won your very generous gift? So many ideas swimming around in my head but I would probably make some patchwork cushion covers similar to your original idea
    Here’s hoping that I might be lucky

  18. I’d make a simple quilt – probably following the pattern on your blog by The Elven Garden – it really lets the fabric shine.

  19. I’d love to make a quilt for my doctor’s newborn daughter. It would welcome a beautiful, new life and thank my doctor for helping me live more comfortably with a serious chronic illness.

  20. What a fantastic giveaway !! Very generous !! I would make a either a quilt wall hanging for my living room or use the peices for a complicated EPP project 😁

  21. Lovely giveaway. I began patchwork and quilting classes 12 mths ago and really enjoy them. If I won I would perhaps make a quilt for myself with this luxury fabric, as most things I have made so far have been given away.

  22. We are just about to have renovations on our house so probably a quilt/throw for our settee, and so the kids can snuggle up in it. Thank you, lovely giveaway.

  23. Happy ‘Blogversary’! And what a great giveaway…. I have so many projects a first quilt try, pillow covers,bags… so I really need to grow my stash…! 🙂

  24. I love liberty, but so far have only used it in my Liberty foxes quilt. I would love to make some cushions, but with the number of charm squares, would probably land up using them in a bigger quilt.

  25. Daughter due for bed room update and upgrade of bed from single to double – a new quilt could set the tone of the redo.

  26. Love, love love liberty fabric ! they make me happy, I would very much like to make a quilt for my granddaughter , she ‘s lovely and cheerfull and my little Sunshine, it would suit her so very well. I have shared your post on fb and pinned it

  27. Congratulations! And thanks for this great giveaway! I would like to make bags and small items for sewing and quilting (needle cases) with these beautiful fabrics.

  28. I thought I’d get an idea of what to make (if I won) from all the other comments but I’m even more undecided than ever. Maybe a quilt or little zipped patchwork bags or cushions or…………!
    Congratulations on 5 years+ of blogging and keeping the quality high.
    Teresa x

  29. Something with hexagons…either a bag or a lap quilt. Just lovely…thanks so much for your generous giveaway!

  30. Something with hexagons…either a bag or a lap quilt. Just lovely…thanks so much for your generous giveaway!

  31. I know for sure that I would spend quite some time drooling over them, laying them out and rearranging them, then doing it all over again whilst I decided if I’d make a quilt, a cushion, a bag or maybe something else. I’d think about who would be the recipient of the finished article, if I could bare to part with it…… am I a meany or a generous spirit? One thing I do know….. I LOVE Liberty and would love to win it.
    Jo x

  32. I would probably spend some time just looking at them at first. I have been using your Liberty hexagons for cushions but would love to make a spools quilt if I was lucky enough to win this super giveaway

  33. If I win, this fabric would definitely fit into the scrappy epp he die quilt I’ve been working in for the past 5 years. One day I’ll finish that sucker…

  34. What a lovely Blog! Beautiful fabric. I would make a lovely throw for my bedroom. I will share on my FB page! xxx

  35. I would love to come up with a wonderful idea but I imagine I will sit, stare and stroke it for a long time before making a quilt for my very girly daughter x

  36. Happy Blogiversary, hope the move to just Etsy goes smoothly and doesn’t lose you any customers, and what a gorgeous giveaway. I have a gorgeous pile of fabrics that I’m slowly growing which at some point will become a quilt just for me, and your Liberty fabrics would fit in beautifully with them.

  37. Congratulations – I really enjoy reading your blog!
    I love a bit of patchwork, however almost all the patchwork and quilts I’ve made have been gifts so if I was lucky enough to get my hands on all these lovely prints I’d make a selfish project all for myself, maybe a lovely small lap quilt for snuggling on the sofa with a film and knitting project! 🙂

  38. Hi,

    My mum has just introduced me to you! If I won the competition I would make a gardening set for my allotment. I’d make a big pillow, a blind for my homemade shed, a tool belt, and if anything left – some lovely bunting to string between my fruit trees.

    If I don’t win – I may well join one of your clubs anyway to be able to do it! Probably shouldn’t say that, may have scuppered my chances 😏


  39. Currently in love with vintage tea cups so I would make something likes table runner. Congrats on your blog anniversary

  40. Congratulations, and what a great giveaway! I would make my first patchwork quilt, I like sewing but haven’t ever made a patchwork, and I have been meaning to make one for at least a year! I have practiced using scraps of material from old shirts but haven’t chosen my fabrics yet for my actual quilt..

  41. Love liberty fabrics. Would make something quilts. A quilt or appliqué flowers to make a wall hanging. Thanks for the chance to win

  42. Wow that is a long time! Happy bloggiverary :). Love the fabrics available and Liberty is of course always on the top of the list. I would have to do a handmade Klosjes quilt. An old Dutch pattern, spool block.

  43. I would make some patchwork with these, I think a blanket would be lovely. Every month I could make up new squares and then when the final parcel arrives and the last squares have been made I can put it all together. How wonderful would that be to pass onto the next generation in my family 🙂

  44. Congrats with your anniversary! I am a big fan of your blog and your makes. Thank you for the awesome giveaway. Id love to make a quilt out of that for my brothers first child.

  45. What a fantastic giveaway and congratulations on your blog anniversary. I would definitely start a second La Passacaglia quilt. Ever since I started my first I’ve thought how wonderful it would look in Liberty fabrics – a family heirloom to be treasured

  46. Ok, first things firts. I will definitely hoard it, air from time to time to pet, pet twice, and then pet some more. I’ll take plenty of time to figure out its purpose ;P.
    Congrats on your 5-year-anniversary! such a huge milestone!

  47. I always enjoy your posts and your competitions.
    Realistically, if I won this fabric, I would spend quite some time just looking at it and feeling it because it is sooo lovely.
    Then I would add it to my own small stash of Libertys and make it the basis of 2 special quilts for my granddaughters to feel and love.

  48. OMG!! I have only just recently discovered Liberty fabric and have fallen in love! Congratulations on your anniversary!! Oh! If I were the lucky winner, I would make a quilt for myself😉

  49. hmmm, I think I’d finally make a small quilted wall hanging for my sewing room. It would be so fun to look up and see Liberty on the wall!
    Congratulations and thank you for the inspiration for so many years.

  50. I’d like to make a small patchwork throw and a cushion for my reading chair in my room. The radiator doesn’t work properly, so it gets cold there in autumn, but I love to sit there with a book in the sunshine

  51. I shared on Facebook – could I just look at it and touch it for a while – before I made the quilt!!! Hee Hee!!

  52. Happy blog birthday! I sure hope I will be reading your blog for another 5 years. I would love to win and I would make some kind of scrappy wonderfulness with those squares. Maybe they would be HSTs?

  53. I think I’d like to wait until I have all the material, then make myself a quilt for my bed. I’m not sure which pattern, maybe a Disappearing 9 Patch, but I’ll wait until I (maybe) have won to decide that.

  54. Hi Ali. Just finished my Liberty wallflower cushion it’s ready in my case as it’s going to Vancouver, Must order my Hexies to do on the plane love Valerie x

  55. Love to win Ali, been following you for a couple of years now I would make a throw for my Granddaughter in Vancouver I am visiting her on the 12th September and staying for a couple of weeks love Valerie x

  56. Hi, congratulations.
    My soon-to-be-sister-in-law has just put in a request for a bright and breezy double wedding ring quilt ( I have never done one before) so this would be perfect, should I win.
    Thanks for the chance.

  57. Congratulations! I have been reading your blog, following your thorough tutorials and purchasing from you for about 4 years or so (not to mention taking part in the brilliant ATC swaps, 6 out of the 7). Thank you for the giveaway and if I won, I would add the extra squares to the packs I’ve previously bought and make a King Size quilt and maybe a cushion or two x

  58. Hi. Wow these lovely colours would fit right in to the quilt I am planning for my first 6month old grandchild. I am hoping to make a family heirloom!! Thanks for the chance to enter the giveaway.

  59. Congratulations Ali & so well deserved. I’ve adored Liberty fabrics, particularly Tana Lawn for many decades & if I was lucky enough to win I’d make the most beautiful quilt for my neice & her fiancé as a wedding present – though parting would be such sweet sorrow. Thank you. x

  60. I think I would make some mini bunting for myself and daughters and then use any offcuts in some textile art 🙂

  61. It would finally give me the push I need to dig out my nanny’s sewing machine and learn how to use it. I have promised myself for months that I will do it!

  62. I have been collecting squares of liberty fabrics from quilt/ sewing shows & Kirsty’s handmade fair (mainly from you). My aim is to make a nice lap quilt with them eventually. If I won this giveaway, I could ‘go larger’ and make a bed quilt. Fingers, toes, legs & arms are crossed. Thanks for the chance to win!

  63. I think I’d be making some cathedral window pincushions and all the best with your Etsy venture. Rhian

  64. HI, this is so difficult to answer. I’ve never had any Liberty, so after fondling it a while, I might make a beautiful quilted throw! Thank You for a lovely Blog+Giveaway!

  65. I would love to win such gorgeous fabric, I would make a special quilt for my daughter to snuggle under and cherish as she is only 9. : )

  66. Oh my goodness I would love to win this! I would use them to make a quilt for my mum and dads 30th anniversary present next year!

  67. It’s great fun following your blog and good luck for the next 5+ years. I would have to make a quilt for my dil. She always yearns after the first one I made and whilst I am tempted to give it to her I love it too much.

  68. My lovely sister in law, who introduced me to quilting, has just invited me on a quilt retreat. So I would share it with her and make a quilt on the retreat!

  69. All that fabulous Liberty fabric, well I might just have to keep it folded and starched for a while, time to stroke and think about what to do, I am sure it would be some form of patchwork and something to look at.

  70. I’d use all those lovely squares to make patchwork bags. They’re far too lovely not to show them off to everyone!
