Best of Show Video: Saffron Splendor

1

Pat Holly shares techniques from her Best of Show quilt, Saffron Splendor, at AQS QuiltWeek—Grand Rapids, Michigan 2015. Pat’s excitement is contagious! Her quilt, Saffron Splendor, was inspired by a trip to India.

She used silk fabric and decorative stitches to create the unique background fabric, then machine appliquéd the next layers of design. Pat added tiny hand-stitched sequins to give it added sparkle!

Enjoy this interview as Pat speaks with Bonnie Browning, AQS Executive Show Director.

Listen for a hint about Pat’s next quilt!

Take a look at this close-up shot of the intricate appliqué:
