Best of Show Video: Saffron Splendor


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!
