Welcome to Cucina Italiana, the second release in McKenna Ryan's Cuisine Series. This five-block quilt paints a picture of iconic ingredients found in every Italian kitchen. From crisp-crusted pane to lush pomodori, this series looks good enough to eat. Each block features a masterful combination of colors and textures reminiscent of terrace gardens, terra-cotta roofs, and traditional Italian ornamentation. McKenna's palette draws on the splendid Bali Batiks from Hoffman California Fabrics. Each quilt may be framed separately, or arranged together for the "perfetto grupo". McKenna's innovative appliqué techniques and easy-to-follow instructions make these blocks wonderful projects for quilters of all abilities. Bring the beauty of Italy into your home with Cucina Italiana!
