A Walk in the Forest

I have just completed a quilt top from Kaffe Fassett's book Kaleidoscope of Quilts. To be specific, "Morning Garden Quilt" or "Tapestry Garden Quilt" depending what picture inspires. This is the second one I have whipped up, the other was predominantly Kaffe's fabric. I had started to cut ages ago, way back last year when I started number one, so in my flurry to complete the incomplete, this is the end result. I love the riot of colour, although a little less bright than usual, and the composition of fine Libertys with Amy Butler's bold "Belle" collection.
It has been a release just to go forth and throw a combination of fabrics together which a lot of people may say don't work together, but quilting is personal, and doesn't have to be a precise exercise. So be free and create.
