Each year, one working colleague and friend, is surprised at our Christmas lunch with a quilt as his/her Kris Kringle present. This year dear friend Marianne received this one. As she loves the warm tropics of Queensland for her holidays, the warm bright Kaffe Fassett fabrics were an obvious choice. This is a simple block that takes advantage of his large vibrant prints. Free motion quilting of 4 flower outlines, in diagonal rows, with waves in the dark blue border and sashing, completed the ‘Tropical Garden”.
