I have nothing new to post this morning, so here is a photo of a quilt I completed two years ago. It is from thequiltshow.com 2009 Block of the Month. It has many Kaffe Fassett fabrics, hence the name of the quilt - "Kaffe-inated." The lovely and extensive quilting is by Sandi Wagner of SewFine Quilts (http://www.sandisewfine.com).
The opinion was offered at the time I was making this quilt that the use of Kaffe's fabrics wouldn't work because so many of his fabrics are fairly large scale prints. The 24 blocks just inside the flying geese border are six-inch finished. They are drafted on a six-by-six grid, giving a finished size within the block of 36 one-inch patches. And some of those are half square triangle blocks! The triangles were made using triangle paper which only slightly lessened the torture. Anyway, I am satisfied, and think that the Kaffe fabrics "worked a treat", to quote Mr. Fassett.
