From Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in Italy book, this quilt is assembled in vertical columns, which are then stitched together. The flowers for the squares at each corner of the border pieces are fussy cut. The zig zag effect is enhanced by alternating dark and light diamonds across each horizontal row, creating a 3D effect in much the same way as a traditional Tumbling Blocks pattern. The finished quilt will measure approx 67" x 92".
Each kit includes the book and pre-cut fabrics needed to make the quilt top. The fabrics are matched when possible to the original quilt, however, some substitutions may occur due to availablity of fabrics.
You will need 5 5/8 yards of backing fabric.
