Hello, my name is Rita Hodge. I am a quilter and blogger with a fascination for all things fabric ~ especially quilting cottons. You can see all of my work here: Red Pepper Quilts.
When I was asked to preview the Irome collection for Kokka Fabric I jumped at the chance. The colors are delightful, and several of the designs are wonderfully delicate. I love that the collection consists of fabrics for all of the seasons, and I was immediately drawn to the soft and gentle color palette, mixed with some highlights of bolder/brighter color.
The quilt design is simple (large scale Half Rectangle Triangles) which allows the fabric and the colors to feature. I have quilted the quilt with an all over 1 inch grid of intersecting lines, which adds interest and compliments both the design and the fabrics.
I have made the binding for the quilt from some of the scrappy left over fabric pieces. Scrappy binding is a favorite and I love to see all of the different patterns and colors playing alongside one another so very nicely.
With thanks to Kokka Fabric for providing all of the fabrics for me to work with, and for inviting me to share my quilt here today. I have enjoyed working with the Irome range and look forward to it’s release as well as seeing many more of the projects that will be made with this collection.
