Kaffe Fassett Country Garden Quilts Fabric Packs

Kaffe Fassett Country Garden Quilts Book
Kaffe Fasset and Rowan's latest Patchwork and Quilting project book was launched at the Festival of Quilts in August. The book is a sumptuous collection of quilts with a floral theme and marks a decade of partnership between Kaffe and Rowan. We now have available all 20 quilts as fabric packs for you to make. The instructions for making the quilts are all in Country Garden Quilts so you will need a copy of the book. As usual there is a range of visually stunning quilts from a range of designers using some of the latest fabrics from Kaffe.

Kaffe Fassett Quilting
The photographs of the quilts were taken at Great Dixter, the House and Gardens made famous by Christopher Lloyd, that epitomise the English Country Garden. Great Dixter is combination of an original mid 15th century building and a 16th century house in a similar style, which was moved from Kent. This new combination was the work of the famous architect Edwin Lutyens. The Garden though is mainly the work of Christopher Lloyd and is in an arts and crafts style with a Long Border, Wall Garden and Meadow amongst its features.
