Liberty Salad

Check out my score off Etsy.

I want to tell you where I got them, but I can’t.  I don’t remember.  Somewhere in England.  Don’t bother searching, I bought all the scraps she had. 

Look at that strip along the top– the loooong, one with the giant weird colored sunflowers.  That’s my second favorite piece.  It’s so cute, I cry tears of joy when I pet it.  And see that one on the right toward the botton– the big piece with the light pink background and red/plumberry poppies on it?  That’s my absolute favorite.  I get tongue-tied around it, in fact.

Ideas on what to make?

I’m thinking bibs.  Even though no one I know is pregnant with a little girl.  The pieces are so tiny, I just don’t know.  Definitely something raw-edge appliqued.  *sigh* I’m just so in love.

    Wow, congrats on the score. I love scraps. I have some Liberty my brother gave me for Christmas. He lived and worked in London for about 18 months.

    So why not make a sewing machine cover (although you might never need it) that looks like this: http://www.sewinspiredblog.com/2010/01/audries-scrappy-patchwork-sewing.html
    Or you could always do some ticker tape blocks, but bibs would be adorable too.

    It’s an idea.

    Um, have you seen Emma Louise’s blog? She’s in Australia, but if you’re looking for “something” to do with small pieces of strips, she has just done something you *gotta* see! Check it:

    Crowing?

    I would give my left arm for this!!! I think it’s absolutely GORgeous!!! I’m sure it’ll inspire you for your new prizes. =-)

  5. So, bibs would be adorable. Really. But if I had a Liberty bib for my very spitty small child I would be afraid to use it! That flickr pic of the pieced circles is pretty amazing. And I actually LOVE your pic of all of the scraps all laid out together. Kind of amazing!
