Happy Mail!

Liberty fat quarters

When I went to visit my sons in London last March, I bought some yardages of Liberty fabrics.
The problem in Liberty's shop is that you cannot buy less than one yard, which limits you as they are quite expessive.
So, recently obsessed with those prints, I searched the web and was happy to find a very good site selling fat quarters of Liberty fabrics. The prices are reasonable and the shipping is very fast. 
These Liberty prints remind me of my youth, some are still the same as those I was using when sewing cushions for my new studio in Paris!
Have a great day!
Bonne journee a toutes mes amies quilteuses francaises!

  2. I didn't know about the one yard minimum. Unusual way to sell fabric. They aren't thinking of quilters.

  6. Et vous avez bien fait !! Les Liberty sont des tissus très appréciés mais leur prix nous font réfléchir à deux fois avant d'en acheter..... :(

  7. C'est bien vrai Cecile, c'est pourquoi je les utilise a "petites doses" en les integrant a d'autres moins onereux.

  8. Such a precious parcel you got! I love them all. You know that there is a shop in Athens who represents Liberty Fabrics and they can sell even 20 centimeters of each. The name is CANELLO, owned by the Kanellopoulos sisters and it is on Christou Lada str. No. 9 in the center of Athens. Their price is €39 a meter. I don't know if the price you bought yours is different. They also have Harris Tweeds and some other beautiful fabrics.
