I have nothing new to post this morning, so here is a photo of a quilt I completed two years ago. It is from 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 (

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.


  1. Hello Mary Ellen,

    Your quilt is completely gorgeous and looks absolutely IMMENSE. Some serious hard work and patience went into it.

    If you are done with that pattern, The quilt show 2009 BOM, I would love to make one from this pattern one day myself. So I would love to Buy your pattern - IF you are done with it.
