Another lovely finish from one of my readers. Karen Daley offered to sew a quilt top for me, and she was excited about working with the shot cottons. Not everyone is (they can be a bit flimsy, nothing that some Best Press can’t fix) so I jumped at her offer. I had this improv color block quilt by Heather Jones in mind, and Karen came over to choose some colours to work with. Her inspiration was the Kaffe Fassett Paperweight in Pastel.
You can see it here on the back. I love using Kaffe prints as a backing fabric, and it’s so much fun to pull out colours from the print to use on the front. I did the same thing with this quilt. Isn’t Karen’s palette perfect for spring?
Karen is a fellow member of the OMQG and a relatively new quilter. She offered to quilt the top for me too, and did a lovely job with some free motion stippling. And then she did the binding too! Thank you Karen … it is gorgeous!
About the pattern … I see so much “scope for imagination” in this simple layout. Shot cottons, solids, prints … my mind is spinning! What sparks your imagination?
