a little ditty


By Patricia Belyea 

A sample pieced with yukata cottons and quilted with No. 8 perle cotton, Tangled Garden was designed to show other quilters ways to combine busy Japanese patterns.

It’s made from simple doodles and freezer paper patterns. The bright squares in the border are reverse fussy-cut—utilizing the background color of Japanese floral prints.

Marianne Burr at a CQA meeting spoke about use perle cottons for her stitching threads. This is my first quilt using such heavy threads—I’m hooked because the look is so graphic.
