What was your inspiration?
Kaffe Fassett's Country Garden book. I fell in love with this one and ordered his fabric. It was farily easy. My daughter -in- love wanted it but it is on our bed here in the house in AZ where we live year round. I don't see many rainbows unless it rains which isn't often. So, I love this one on our bed. It is a queen topper.
What are you most proud of?
That I still have it. It isn't available anymore. I feel blessed to own it!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I could help a bit by finding the pattern book and emailing some instructions but the fabric may not be for sale anywhere since they are not in production. Kaffe doesn't always sell the same fabrics year after year and there isn't any way to get them unless one can find them as vintage on eBay. That is the only thing to do. Look on eBay.
