I love making quilts, partly because they are so useful. They are great to give away to friends who are getting married, having a birthday, or sick in hospital, they are great to make for your family to see them snuggled up at night under your creation. They are also great as household decoration. I love having some quilts around the house just to look at when I'm sittting have a quiet cup of coffee, or walking past as I'm cleaning, or just see out of the corner of my eye when I'm on the phone. The colours in contemporary fabrics never fail to amaze or delight me, and when chopped up, rearranged and put together again into a beautiful quilt, the colours become mouth watering and sometimes suprising. The quilt in these photo's was Morning Garden Quilt, another Kaffe Fassett quilt from his book Kaleidoscope of Quilts. I loved his use of colour so much in this quilt I bought the fabric kit and made it up as he had done.
And if I get sick of looking at this view, I simply turn it around, and display the back of the quilt for a while.
