Kaffe Quilt WIP 2

Two years ago Martin's daughter was going to get married. I asked her if she wanted a quilt. The answer was yes. Her colour preferences were autumn. Hmm what do I have in yellows, browns and golds. Kaffe Fassett to the rescue. His fabric is a favourite of mine for family quilts. It feels like awhile since I had visited my stash, they were better than I remembered. 

I put this together from some pre cut squares I had from some project I do not even remember (note to self, please include a note or pattern with cut bits). I am very happy with it. 

I sent it to my cousin for long arm quilting, it is now stunning. And there it sat for almost two years as the wedding was postponed due to covid.

In an effort to have some order in my quilting space (which is also our living room/lounge) I am finishing off past projects. The binding went onto this beauty as this was a low hanging fruit so to speak. 

I am very proud of this quilt. I know Kaffe is not for everyone sooo if she doesn't like it I may have to keep it.

Kate Spain WIP 1

 Happy New Year! So I am a little behind in my posting and my quilting.

I pulled fabric for 3 adult nieces quilts. I have quite the stash of Kaffe Fasset, however I ordered a ton more fabric. And I decided to make the nephew a quilt too. I should have kept with the make one quilt idea. I am having difficulties focusing and getting them done.

Of the fabric I ordered I have now misplaced the piece I need to finish off the blocks, grr.

I am taking the opportunity to put the binding on a few quilts I sent to my cousin for long arming. She does amazing work.

This quilt has been a top for quite awhile. It is Cuzco by Kate Spain. Loved it then, love it now!!

The next quilt to finish up!

I am hopeful when I clear out some of the WIP's I will find my fabric!

Gifted to Jenn and Joseph for all the help they provided at my wedding!! Thank you!!
