V&A and Liberty Collaboration Fabric
These fabrics are created exclusively for the V&A shop, and feature designs from quilts in V&A collections dating from the 18th century. For example, ‘Ikat’ (the right one with the sleeve on) and ‘Stripes’ (on the left) are taken from a patchwork coverlet of the 1780s and 1790s.
‘Petals’ is taken from a patchwork coverlet pieced from various early 19th century printed cottons.
My favourite; ‘Hearts’, taken from a patchwork coverlet of the 1780s and 1790s.
I haven’t decided what I’m going to do with these lovelies, but I’m quite happy just marvelling at them at the moment. And right now, they are having 25% off (yay!) for these limited edition fabrics; go and shop online before they disappear!
