When an avid gardener and seasoned quilt and stitchery designer combines her two passions, magic sprouts! Using a mix of wool and cotton as her medium and flowers as her muse, Kathy Cardiff brings her blossoming backyard garden to life in projects that blend elegant beauty with a touch of primitive charm. Projects from pillows and sewing notions to table toppers and wall quilts culminate in a stunning nine-block sampler quilt bursting with blooms. Add basic embroidery-stitch details to give each flower, leaf, and vine Kathy's special brand of cottage style. Full-sized pullout patterns included.
The creative force behind The Cottage at Cardiff Farms, Kathy Cardiff is a popular quilt designer perpetually inspired by her love of the garden. She learned the art of sewing from her mother, who was a professional seamstress, and the design basics from her dad, who was an engineer. Kathy has been teaching and designing quilts and wool applique projects since 2006. For her, there is nothing more exciting than introducing a new stitcher to wool and sharing her techniques for applique.Visit Kathy's website
