From A - Liberty Lap Duvet

It's starting to get chilly here at night and as a result, the Mr. and I have started fighting over the giant grey blob of a down comforter that occupies our couch. Wanting something a little more attractive that would offer warmth and restore marital harmony, I decided to make a Liberty and wool lap duvet.

This is Liberty's Mauvey print. Definitely my all-time favourite! I just can't get enough of the combination of flowers and stars. I think I have it in three different colourways at this point.

I used the satin stitch on my machine to "quilt" it all together with some yellow Aurifil thread I had from this project. Finished dimensions are about 32" by 54" which makes it the perfect size to snuggle up with in my favourite armchair.

Although I was a little skeptical at how warm a thin layer of Liberty tana lawn and some felted wool would actually be, I was pleasantly surprised when I took this baby on a test drive last night while watching the boob tube with my blanket hog spouse. With this baby in hand, I can probably hold off turning on the heat for another month or two.

  3. The simplicity of this really makes the most of that gorgeous liberty in all its beauty! and so cosy with the wool. My daughter is coveting something like this now!

  5. OK, I would send you all the 45% cashmere yarn I could scratch up for one of these. I asked Santa for some Liberty (fat chance, he is chicken about fabric and yarn shopping) so I really might have to get to this in the coming year. What an amazing everyday luxury! Luxurious warm things are so important in winter.
