Liberty Love…

I have to admit I have become a little obsessed with Liberty of London fabric. I have been getting a monthly bundle of Liberty from Ava & Neve and every time I get a new package I get excited all over again to use them to make something beautiful. (I extra love that though Ava & Neve are based in my home town of Brisbane but they ship to the US for no extra cost).

I have become bundle addicted and I stalk the post box at the end of each month waiting for the next hit… it is such a great way to get a good stash of Liberty lawn without to much expenditure… and I have also become obsessed with using as much of the fabric as I can, resorting to saving little tiny pieces that with quilting cotton I would usually throw out.

This week my Liberty obsession manifested itself in the form of a hexi pillow…

This lovely pillow used 75 different one inch hexagons of Liberty on a background of Essex Linen…

I used Nicole at Modern Handcrafts modern hexagon tutorial to make the pillow. This tutorial is fabulous and I love the easy at which the hexagons are attached… there is no hand sewing the suckers together, just glue.. lots and lots of glue.

The pattern also allows you to play with how you layout the hexagons. I choose to taper my hexies off at the edges of the pillow…

I so loved this pillow that I have started another Liberty pillow… so stay tuned for next weeks installment of “Cath’s Liberty Obsession”.
