Now that I am not selling Liberty lawn fabrics any more, I am so happy to be able to promote my rival (although to be honest, I never reached the same level of excellence!), Duck Egg Threads, as my new blog sponsor.
Tailored to quilters and crafters, who often do not need to buy larger pieces of a premium fabric when only a little is needed, their Liberty Tana Lawn is mainly sold in the very useable size of fat eighths (33cm x 50cm), but you can also buy in fat sixteenths too (33cm x 25cm).
Something I always wanted to do, but never quite got round to, was to stock a range of solid coloured cottons that worked with the Tana Lawn. Sarah has that all sorted, stocking the Pure Elements line of solids from Art Gallery Fabrics – as you can see, Duck Egg Threads has lots of colours in stock, with lots more to come in the near future:
Of course, this means that Sarah has the opportunity to put together some bundles of Liberty prints and coordinating solids. Love this classic grey and mustard combination – Sarah says one of her big influences is Orla Kiely and I can see that in these colour choices:
A big draw for me is the We Love Liberty Monthly Club, where you get a lovely bundle of fabric through your letterbox each month.. Sadly the subscription club is closed at the moment, but you could always sign up to go on the waiting list via the Contact Form.
Really usefully, there’s also a range of notions that’s small, but absolutely perfectly formed if you are interested in hand sewing and/or English Paper piecing – and who isn’t when you are sewing with Liberty lawn? So there are Aurifil threads in all the right colours (shades of grey and cream of course!), Black Gold needles, Clover clips, quilting pins, and my favourite Sewline glue pen, amongst other goodies.
To celebrate the this auspicious event… Sarah has very kindly put together an AWESOME bundle for me to give away to one lucky reader.
The prize is:
- We Love Liberty Monthly Club July Bundle (8 Fat Sixteenths of gorgous Liberty prints)
- FQ Pure Elements Cherry Lipgloss
- FQ Pure Elements Dark Citron
- FQ Pure Elements Tigerlily
- FQ Pure Elements Empire Yellow
- Sewline Glue Pen (with 1 refill only)
- Clover Black Gold Needles Appliqué/Sharps No. 9,10,12 mixed pack
