Back in August the Sydney based Prints Charming girls, Kirsten and Cath, emailed me to see if I would be interested in having a little play with their new fabric collection. Of course, that's a no brainer! Yes, yes, fabric always received with open arms!
Daisy Chain by Prints Charming for Kokka Fabrics
"Starting with the notion of 70’s summers,
love birds nesting in fields of daisies,
spots and stripes decorating their world.
Layers of color create hexagon lakes,
and strung from tree to tree chains of daisies brighten up the rose tinted skyline."
I've tried to incorporate many of the fabrics in the range to make the quilt, and have made a feature of my favorite prints - those gorgeous birds.
Daisy Chain is 100% cotton fabric, and it is a heavier weight fabric - canvas - suitable for all home decorating applications, and also quilts! I encountered no problems with the patchwork piecing, basting and quilting of this quilt - in fact I think it was easier to baste as there was little stretch in the quilt top.
I finished the quilt with a stripey binding fabric also from the Daisy Chain collection.
This quilt is going to be well traveled, having already spent some time in Sydney, it has since made it's away across to Purl Soho in NYC where the Prints Charming girls are teaching this week, and will then make it's way to the Houston Quilt Market to be part of the Kokka booth.
