Liberty of London at Target

March 15, 2010

I’ve always loved Liberty fabrics. This year the Victoria and Albert Museum have a new exhibition opening 20 March – 4 July 2010 called Quilts 1700-2010.

Supported by the Friends of the V&A

Exhibitions, Room 39 and North Court
£10 Adults
£ 8 Seniors
£ 6 Students, 12-17 yrs, ES40 Holders
Members go free.  For more information click here.

“This exhibition will showcase the V&A’s collection of patchwork and quilted covers to bring together over 300 years of British quilting history, from the spectacular bed hangings and silk coverlets of the 18th century, to the creative reinvention of the quilt by contemporary artists.”

Now if you go to the V & A on line shop you’ll discover that the V & A in conjunction with Liberty of London have created a new range of fabrics for this show and it’s for sale…

They say:

Quilts: 1700 – 2010

“The V&A’s inspirational archives of pattern are the greatest in the world. Quilts 1700-2010 (20 March – 4 July 2010) is a visual encyclopaedia of design, with thousands of minute pieces of fabric reflecting three centuries of pattern and print. Celebrating the exhibition, our exclusive range of products includes a limited edition collection of 18 printed quilting fabrics, vividly bringing to life designs from the quilts on display.”

V&A quilting fabric now in stock. They are selling it by fat quarter, half a metre and by the yard. There is also a book accompanying the the exhibition.

If you go to the shop on line you can see the range of fabrics available…this is just one of them.

Now if only I was going home this summer…
