Liberty of London Swatch Portraits

A reader pointed me to this wonderful link at The Purl Bee. This gallery display was made by filling a handful of simple wooden embroidery hoops with swatches of fabric from Liberty of London. If you're interested in making a similar display of your own Liberty of London collection, do visit their Swatch Portraits Project Journal. Thanks for sharing, Celine and Viv!

These have a refreshing simplicity to them, but make a pretty bold statement when grouped together on a wall. I love Liberty prints - they never grow old. Thanks for posting!

This is actually a great idea. I have boxes of favorite swatches. They are too small to do anything with, but I want them around for design inspiration. I can imagine a studio wall covered with these. Of course, I need the studio first!
