Fun in my fabric world....

A touch of spring...

Every now & then you make something that you absolutely, wholeheartedly adore. At our retreat last weekend I started the Knot Garden quilt from Kaffe Fassett's Country Garden book. I finished the top yesterday.
And I love it's spring like freshness...
It is tricky finding shops around me that sell KF fabrics, but thanks to Cathy I was able to find a kit at Tennessee Quilts(thankfully just before the dollar fell!), and I have really enjoyed making it too.
Hope you like it too!
