“Why do you give?” asks Master Quilter Sylvia Bergstrom Compson Cooper in The Giving Quilt, Jennifer Chiaverini’s newest novel that imagines what good would come from practicing the holiday spirit, each and every day of the year. The story begins with the characters interacting during the week after Thanksgiving when preparations for the holidays are in full swing.
Jennifer’s fabric collection reflects the theme of her novel through stunning, thematic prints. A repeating 5″ patch print features an assortment of squares that lend themselves to using in so many ways. Cut them singly to include within larger quilt blocks as Red Rooster Fabrics has done in their promotional quilt pattern. Cut a set of four squares to make hot pads/trivets or cut nine to use as dinner napkins! A variety of coordinate prints provides a balance of color, scale and print design. Since these fabrics have delicate gold metallic touches, they possess an inherently elegant style. Consider embellishing projects with decorative threads, beadwork, or ribbons to augment the fabrics’ rich elegance.
