Blogger's Quilt Festival


DSC08812.JPG
This is a Kaffe Fassett design that was pieced by me from a kit so the fabrics & placements are very close to the original & professionally long arm quilted. If I had not purchased the kit, the center large square would have been done with a different print, that would have been my only change.
I like this quilt of mine so much that it hangs in my living room above my couch! I am particularly smitten with the polka dots!

Here is a smaller photo, since the medium one is getting cut off...

Ohhhh I don't recall seeing this one. I think it must belong next to "Amy's Stars" - don't you? I mean, never mind the clash that would occur. We love clash, don't we? hee! Seriously Amy, great selection from all the ones you could have pulled out.

Sweet garden quilt! I'm such a fan of Kaffe Fassett fabrics. The colors and scale of prints are so saturated and rich - very different from other fabrics on the market. Always nice to see a quilt made from his fabrics.
