Kaffe Prints

While I was in the USA recently, my wonderful friend Linda gave me a fabulous gift , it was a kit she'd made up. It included the most vibrant Kaffe Fassett fabrics, two black and white prints and a pattern by Artichoke Collection called Urban Chic.

Yesterday I started putting the blocks together, and I'm simply loving my progress. It's super easy piecing, and the simple design allows the wonderful fabrics to shine.

I just have to stitch the blocks into rows, and then the rows together and I can start working on the borders. I think I'll make up a different border treatment for this quilt, but it's gone together so quickly to this point that I can have fun playing and not feel that I'm wasting precious sewing time. Happy days!!

Really like that pattern! It looks like a lot of fun. It must be a bit of a relief after the nearly insane block you just finished! Have a good one. Lurking Linda

That is one stunning quilt- I love the contrast of black/white with the Kaffe fabrics. Is the pattern one of your design or is it a commercial pattern?
I have been collecting Kaffe fabrics for awhile and really do like this setting.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful quilt.
Regards,
Anna

Tazzie,

I just have to tell you I absolutely love your blog. It's obvious you are a seriously devoted quilter and remind me soooo much of Bonnie Hunter. Your work just looks perfect. ( I want to be you when I grow up!!!)

Happy Quilting!!!

I think Kaffe fabrics look good anywhere, but they really pop when used with the black and white. Great quilt!!!

I can understand why you love that kit :-) I would too.

That's so nice and summery and not at all overwhelming (which I sometimes find Fasset to be). Love it, x
