Kathy has only been quilting for about 18 months, and since then she has been prolific in her quilt making and very happy to take on more complicated designs. This quilt uses a lot of scraps, including many Kaffe scraps, lots of gorgeous dots and stripes, and comes together beautifully to look a little like a stained glass window.
We had fun draping the quilt around the beautiful gardens at Heronswood. I love this shot, looks a bit like something you would see in a Kaffe Fassett quilt book don't you think (forgiving my less than great photography skills of course!!)? Click on the pic to see better.
A lovely photo of Kathy on her quilt. You can see the ocean in the background if you look closely!
The flowers at Heronswood are always beautiful, they had some Bearded Irises in a jar that day, the colours look almost vintage!
I had fun playing with the different effects in Picasa, and decided I like this one the best, now the quilt really does stand out like stained glass...
It was a lovely day and a wonderful setting for Kathy's stunning quilt.
A couple of days ago I had a visitor in my own garden at home...
