The Idea:
I collect old quilts and tops and one was the inspiration for this quilt. I bought a vintage top signed by the maker, "Charlotte Tompkins, 1939”, that I hand-quilted. I bought the top because I have always wanted to make a Burgoyne Surrounded quilt, but also for the funky appliqué flowers! Charlotte was clearly very groovy for 1939. I enjoyed quilting the original quilt so much that I decided I needed another one. I started with the black background and it just seemed to attract my
Kaffe Fassett stash like a magnet. The black makes the saturated colours of the Kaffe fabrics glow and flash, and the extra appliquéd circles create positives and negatives around the circular piecing in the block. There are lots of small pieces in these blocks, and the appliqué is a little tricky, but don’t be intimidated – I bet you’ll be just as charmed by Charlotte’s design as I was.
