Hesketh House Collection Tour

Hello there! I'm so excited to share this project with you!  Liberty fabric is beautiful, timeless, and let's be honest, special! So I was floored when I heard that Riley Blake Designs is going to be the distributor for Liberty of London Quilting Cotton. Hesketh House is the upcoming collection to hit the US through Riley Blake. It comes in beautiful colorways of deep greens, blues, and beautiful pinks. I knew instantly I wanted to make something with the deep green colorway (because it would match my Staub Pot hehe!). 

If you follow me, you know I just moved into a new house. My husband designed the entire house and I was left with only my sewing/guest room to decorate. I needed to add my handmade touch to something, so when I showed him Hesketh House he loved it (he's a a fan of Liberty too) and caved for me to make something. Our kitchen back splash has a herringbone design, so I instantly knew this was going to be my design for pretty potholders. The design is hand pieced (dont' ask how long that took but it was worth it!). I used a pattern I found online for tile tradesman as my template and went from there. I also used Riley Blake Linen in natural. I thought it would pair so well with Hesketh House!
