Taking Liberties...

I know I'm a little late on this bandwagon but...
Quilts 1700-2000 exhibition is on at the Victoria & Albert Museum now till 4th July. Liberty Art Fabrics and the V & A shop have collaborated on a limited collection featuring designs from quilts in the collection.
I've seen this collection a few times on the blogosphere & beyond but I always stop and stare at this one.
'Shells' is taken from a patchwork coverlet composed of block-printed cottons of the 1780s and 1790s. Made in Britain, dated 1797.

Available from Liberty and the V & A shop
