I'm a huge fan of Liberty fabric, especially the ditsy florals, but I really can't afford to buy it. So I was thrilled when I found out that the factory that produces the fabric for Liberty is nearby to me and that they have a seconds store :D They also print other fabrics too :)
Here it is drying on the line in the gorgeous late summer weather we have been having recently. I got 3 lines full from their scrap pack section* for £8! Yep all this Liberty loveliness for £8!!! Most of the fabrics are seconds although on some of the fabric you can't tell at all (although my dodgy photographs don't help!) I'll show you some of the fabrics I got.
In all the fabrics above there are only slight flaws (and in some cases none at all) but in the ones below you can see the flaws a lot more.
I'm thinking a quilt made of all this fabric would either a) look fantastic if the fabric was placed properly or b) a huge mess! I'm thinking a small square patchwork although hexagons have been leaping toward the front of my mind. The dodgy fabric would become the binding. What do you think? Recipe for disaster or the potential to be fabulous? For £8 I'm willing to try!
*They do have full yardage at the shop too although I am waiting until my clothes sewing skills are much better before buying some. I'm envisaging lots of floaty skirts and dresses for me and the girls!
