Quiltfolk Pattern 005

$8.95

If you’re a quilter, you’ve got ties to New England — no matter where you’re from. After all, much of our quiltmaking tradition comes from this scenic, historic region. For our fifth Quiltfolk Patterns release, we traveled to Massachusetts to call on early-American quilt scholar Lynne Bassett, who gave us the story about a special quilt.

Speaking of special: The incomparable Liza Prior Lucy — Kaffe Fassett’s go-to designer for almost 40 years — is our featured designer for Pattern 005. We couldn’t imagine what Lucy would do with Bassett’s family quilt, but we knew it would be amazing. Lucy did not disappoint.

So grab your cup of tea — and your rotary cutter — and come with us to New England.
