Liberty Lifestyle: Bloomsbury Gardens

Pale Blue Colourway

Hooray!  Liberty are releasing a new fabric collection of quilting weight cottons called Bloomsbury Gardens under their new 'Lifestyle' name.  What?  You didn't know?  No, of course you did... and we are all very excited about it.  And we should be excited.  I've got a swatch book and it is really very nice and not pricey like the Tana Lawn.

Magenta Teal Colourway

It took me an age to choose the prints that I was going to stock here at Backstitch.  I had the little squares of the swatch book arranged on my cutting table for days.  Switching them this way and that way.  Inviting anyone who looked willing to listen in to have a look "What do you think? They are very nice aren't they?"  The number of times I had to clear them off the table to cut orders was great.  Each time I got them out again I was definitely going to make a decision.

Rich Red Blue Colourway

I finally settled on 8 of the best prints in 3 of the best colourways: Pale Blue, Magenta Tea, and Rich Red Blue.  I have put the selection into the shop as 'coming soon' so that you can ogle them and fuel your sewing dreams.

We are expecting these in toward the end of August, but I will be taking pre-orders at the Festival of Quilts (Backstitch will be there on stall G6 - more on that (and a discount voucher) later).  If you would like me to tell you when the collection comes in then send me an email.


  1. You've chosen a lovely selection of fabrics from the collection can't wait to get buying them :)
