V&A Museum Liberty ART Fabrics find

Spade Liberty Art Fabric for the V&A

On a recent weekend in London with Mr Deravelled and the Moomin, we went to the V&A museum (one of my favourite places - yay!).  After having a lovely stroll through the rooms and exhibits, and having a delicious (if very expensive) lunch, we made our way to the gift shop.  And I'm so glad we did!  I found, in the sale bin, one metre pieces of Liberty Art Fabrics cotton, taken from a collection they did in collaboration with the V&A a few years ago.  I chose two pieces of a design (the mathematicians amongst you will know that I bought two metres altogether) that was based on a quilt that dated from the mid 18th century.  How amazing is that?  I wish I'd bought three metres now. 

I have no idea what I will use the fabric for.  However, it will make a great addition to my stash!
