Liberty Love

A few things happened this week which has led me back to Dear Jane (untouched since February!). Marian finished all of her blocks and put them up on her design wall; I received some Liberty fabric from the G'nT Sisters for my birthday; and I needed some hand sewing in hurry for commuting on the train.  

K-7 Rose of Sharing

Don't you just love Liberty's Strawberry Thief fabric? I think this applique shape showcases William Morris' design perfectly.

The sisters gave me some Liberty blues. One was a hanky - how could you possibly blow your nose into such loveliness? Not me, instead it will become another DJ block.

I was on a mini-roll so here are the blocks I finished over the weekend.

H-12 Hannah Lou's Hearts

C-1 Trooper Green's Badge

K-2 Gandpa's Chickens

D-3 Jason's Jacks

Thought I'd have a bit of fun with the next one,instead of just using a white centre I used some of Liberty fabric from the Alice in Wonderland range - cute!

D-13 Field of Dreams

I'm off to Quilts in the Barn this Sunday with my sister Judy- be sure to say 'hi' if you see us!


  1. Lovely work. Glad to have some company on my DJ journey. Especially like your neat applique.

  2. sigh . . . at this rate you will complete your DJ before I do. I think about it every day but, alas, I have a plane to catch in 12 days and must first complete the applesauce, calf registrations, final book edit and celebrate Christmas dinner with my husbands' family.
    Aren't those applique blocks the easiest thing to prep once you get started? My next batch will be square in a square foundation pieced. I did not know that Liberty of London had a Morris line.

  3. Love your fabrics especially the Alice in Wonderland.

  4. Very charming little blocks! Someday I will get started on my DJ--I hope!

  5. Excellent work! Love the Blues - agree on the hankie

  6. You really got a lot of blocks completed. I couldn't stop when I started piecing my Jane, I couldn't wait to see what the next block looked like. Have a great time with your sister. Blessings, Gretchen

  7. I really like that you are using Liberty fabrics. They are such luscious and luxurious fabrics. Strawberry thief is a favourite of mine!
