I just went through my archives to find any pictures I've posted so far on my Kaffe Fassett art quilt but I don't think I've posted any! If you haven't heard of the fabulous designer Kaffe Fassett let me introduce you to him here (click on his name to be taken to his website). His fabrics are wild and whimsical! I can only take his fabric in small doses but my mom has really embraced his style and has started a Kaffe Fassett quilt too. My mom is doing a traditional 9-patch but with these fabrics it is very modern.
Here are some examples of his fabrics from his 2014 Spring and fall collections. I really wish I could post all of them!
Last year at the quilt convention I bought a bundle of fat quarters not quite knowing what I was going to do with them:
I also saw a technique done there that I thought maybe I'd try. There was no pattern which was fine because I don't like following patterns anyway. This quilter sewed the fabrics into tubes then wove them together to make a pattern. Hmmm, I could do that!
This would be the main focus of my quilt. I then appliqued circles onto other parts of the orange background then quilted around the Kaffe Fassett fabrics:

Thanks for looking!!
