When you think of Liberty and when you think of quilting, the images that may spring to mind are of nice Granny type ladies sitting around drinking tea while they hand stitch together patches of ditsy florals. I think that’s perhaps why we were so shocked at the sauce in the current window display celebrating “Quilty Pleasures” in a link up with the V&A’s quilting exhibition.
The windows feature quilts that seem to have sprung from the Tracey Emin school of needlework. Liberty commissioned textile artists Amanda Fatherazi and Lou Gardiner to bring the notion of quilting well into the 21st Century. That is a mission that they certainly appear to have accomplished!
We’ll be featuring these shots and a couple more in the next quarter’s ‘Graphics’ report.
