The Liberty Belle Quilt Glow Up

Once upon a time.... I wrote my very first Quilt pattern.  It is called the Liberty Belle Quilt.  I adore this version still to this day that I made from my Liberty stash along with some Linen.  It is all hand quilted and this was made for my oldest daughter who had a hand in choosing the Liberty fabrics that made up the colour palette.   It was one of the first patterns I released in my Tied with a Ribbon range and always has been a quilt I have loved.

Back in 2015 when it was released it was written in one size only.  It had been on my mind to revisit this quilt pattern and give it a glow up so that I could now remake a new version and add lots more value to this pattern that has proved to be even so popular still today.

So fast forward to today....... and a bundle of Tula Pink Daydreamer later and I had a new cover girl star for this pattern.  

Here is the stunning Queen size version of my Liberty Belle Quilt which has undergone a “Glow Up”.  This size uses a Full FQ Bundle. I used the beautiful @tulapink Daydreamer fabrics. ๐Ÿฆฉ ๐Ÿฆ ๐ŸŒˆ ๐Ÿฆ‹ ๐Ÿ† ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ

The new pattern now includes:

Two Hearts Quilt Along - Week 4

Well I can't believe we have come to the final week of the Two Hearts Quilt Along.  I am beyond humbled by all those who have joined in and for all the love this pattern of mine has been shown.  A massive thank you to you all for your support - it really does mean so much to me.


So this week is all about finishing your blocks as well as getting your Quilt Top ready for Quilting, and Binding and being able to then finish it up.  I have put together some tips and links below which I hope will help you with the decisions for this next part of the process with how you will finish it.




When it comes to deciding on how to Quilt your Quilt - you have lots of options.


Quilt It Yourself - for those keen to quilt your own Quilt there are lots of ways you can tackle this.  You can simply quilt tram lines either sides of all the seam lines for simple but effective quilting.  You can get as adventurous as you like with Free Motion Quilting or even more detailed straight line quilting.  Or how about Cross-Hatching over the entire quilt or even using a Large Zig Zag stitch without needing a lot of experience.

For those wanting to give Free-Motion Quilting a go or already are familiar with this Technique, check out this Blog Post I wrote all about Machine Quilting.  I hope this gives you some helpful tips.


Send it to a Professional - you can send your quilt to a Long Arm quilter who can either do and Edge to Edge Design or Custom Quilt your finished Quilt.


Hand Quilt it - if you love the look of hand quilting or have ever wanted to give this a go, head over and check out all my best Hand Quilting Tips and Tools here.  There is nothing more satisfying than the look of perfectly imperfect hand made stitches in a quilt.





Once you have your Quilt all Quilted - now you can turn your attention to Binding your Quilt. There are so many Tutorials for how to bind you Quilt if you Google.


I have put together a Tutorial on how to work the Binding continuously around the corner when you sew it onto the top of your Quilt – it’s a small but very helpful and useful way to sew your Binding all on in one go.  Check it out here


So this weeks task is to post a pic to Instagram using the hashtags #twoheartsquiltalong#twoheartsquilt and #tiedwitharibbonpatterns of your blocks for your Two Hearts Quilt.  It helps to tag me - @tiedwitharibbon to make sure I see your post and of course your Profile has to be set to Public for me to see it.


A massive thank you again to everyone who has bought my Pattern(s) and participated in the Two Hearts Quilt Along - I am so blown away by how many of you from all over the world have joined in and just in love with your fabric choices and how your quilts have come together.


Thank you , Thank you, Thank you
