In her VeryKerryBerry way — “As an alternative to preplanning a whole quilt, think one block at a time and treat each one as a mini canvas where you can try out colours and prints- let your quilt evolve.

Jane and I knew we had to have Kerry on our project! she creates the most delightful Paper pieced patterns from her home on the South West coast of the UK. Kerry sews not only full quilts, quilt blocks, and projects like her Liberty of London tote (tutorial here), but also most of her clothing!


At her website she is always showcasing amazing fabric combinations I want to try right away .. plus I have fabric envy whenever I go and she is sharing beautiful Liberty of London goodies.
