I was very fortunate to be able to take a workshop with Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mabley at the start of the year. This is Kaffe’s snowball pattern (Garden Chintz from his Kaffe Quilts Again book), and in my choice of colours I called it Hothouse Flowers. You can read about my workshop experience here.

Picnic Blanket

I chopped up a couple of old wool blankets and sewed them together randomly, added Kaffe Fasset fabric that I had treated with Texture Magic, and then hand quilted onto a Japanese backing fabric using large sashimi stitches and Perle 8. Read more here.
