“I like modern quilts and have admired fabrics and quilts created by Kaffe Fassett. I decided to make the ‘Dark Wagga Wagga’ quilt from his book Heritage Quilts.

In this book he took a collection of antique quilts and made them look more modern by using his own fabrics.

I learned that by brightening a color pallet using modern fabric designs, antique patterns can be transformed into modern quilt designs.”
