Country Garden Quilts by Kaffe Fassett
As we arrive at The Festival of Quilts in August 2008 we will be taking delivery of Kaffe Fassett's new project book Country Garden Quilts. This sumptuous collection of quilts with a floral theme marks a decade of partnership bewtween Kaffe Fassett and Rowan. Country Garden Quilts is photographed in the wonderful gardens at Great Dixter in Sussex. The 20 quilts feature the latest fabrics from Kaffe Fassett and Philip Jacobs. Each project has detailed instructions and diagrams.
Kaffe Fassett will be signing copies of the new book on our stand at the Festival of Quilts and if you are not going to be there and would like a signed copy then we are taking pre-orders now. Our Kaffe Fassett book page has further details on how to do this.

Celtic patchwork and quilting fabric

Celtic Patchwork and quilting cushion panelWe featured intricate designs featuring Celtic knotwork back in 2006 and they were very popular. The current range of Celtic designs contrasts teal blues with warm, rich earthy tones, and highlighted with gold. Above is one of two designs from the cushion panel strip.Celtic design Panel Fabric
There is a cushion panel, a mini strip and four coordinating fabrics. Celtic illustration is a favourite of mine and I have always admired the work of Jim Fitzpatrick and the Celtic inspired works of Lloyd Alexander were a favourite when I was younger.
