Open Call for British Designer at Liberty of London

By lisawato / January 17, 2014 /

Can it really be only a week since the Open Call for British Designers at Liberty of London.

I really enjoyed the event, had lots of fun with my queue buddies and got to pitch my quilts to Ed (the MD) and Julie (head of the Liberty Christmas shop who suffered a bauble crisis).  So thrilling to see all the lovely characters from the C4 Liberty show.

Ed liked the bold orange and hot pink with purple tartan Harris Tweed quilt best!

On another note, just added my shop link onto my website, so do check my quilts out on folksy at;

Thanks to @lisawatso for the most fabulous quilt ever. Isn’t it gorgeous!!! And in my favourite colour…Green!
@CMBoggianno – June 9

I bought Lisa’s ‘sunshine yellow velvet and subtle blues, browns and greys Harris Tweed, quilt. Just love the fabrics, colour combinations and the workmanship is superb.

Oh my, my, my! Lisa, what a beautiful thing you create! They are heavenly beautiful! Simply, I am glad I came across your work and brought them!!!

I am so pleased with my beautiful quilt. The colours are lovely and they tone in really well with our bedroom colours.

Lisa is very proud of her quilts and justifiably so. I have never seen any like them, photos do not do them justice.
