Do you remember Kate, the vase and bouquet quilt made with both beautiful sides of Kaffe Fassett fabric?
While Kate (shown below) is made with both sides of one fabric, Kate’s Bouquet is made with both sides of two fabrics!
But don’t stop scrolling… Kate’s Bouquet is shown next!
Kate was made using both sides of Japanese Chrysanthemum by Philip Jacobs for Kaffe Fassett Collective.
Firstly, you make the vase by tracing a template onto lightweight fusible and adhering it to the RIGHT side of the fabric.
Next, press lightweight fusible to the REVERSE side of the fabric. Cut the blooms out using the fabric motif as the guide. This is also known as Broderie Perse applique.

Finally, you build the bouquet on a fun collection of scrappy background fabrics!
Now see Kate’s Bouquet, made with both sides of two fabrics!
Kate’s Bouquet is a dramatic statement for statement in any home!The negative space gives Kate a modern appeal, especially when used with a brilliant solid background fabric.
Notably, the best part about making Kate’s Bouquet is that you only need three fabrics to make this quilt! Use BOTH beautiful sides of the focus and table fabric and get one fabulous fabric for the background!
Kate’s Bouquet is shown with the same floral focus fabric in a different colorway.
Look at this lovely and softer version made by my friend, Linda. She’s named her quilt “Rose”. Her softer quilt has a calm feel about her and goes beautifully in Linda’s newly decorated living room.
Just imagine the options for background fabrics! You could mimics wall paper or old plaster walls. So many options!
And, of course, there are always fabulous floral fabrics on the market for designing your own bouquet!
