We have a real treat for you in this week’s craft preview, from the renowned Kaffe Fassett.

It’s a must for our quilters out there! 

As he writes: “All the reds in our fabric collection are great for this easy-to-make quilt. And it is a good way to use large-scale prints.”

If you prefer to use another colour combination, there are other fabric choices available in the range.
