My first Kaffe Fassett quilt is done

That's right, my first Kaffe Fassett quilt is done - I'm sure there will be more! I began this one last fall prior to my clean-out-this-stash project. The top was pieced but needed quilting when I put it aside for a while.

You may remember it from a July, 2016 retreat. It needed borders.

I put on the borders in August.

Then I finally began quilting it at the end of March. Now it is finished! The quilt is 73" square. All fabric except the white and the  'plain' blue are Kaffe Fassett fabrics - all purchased on trips with some being from the Oregon coast and the rest being from Maine. The 'plain' blue fabric - centers of small motifs, square corners of larger motifs, and the binding - is from Delve in Cedar Rapids.

I'm not sure if you can see the quilting. It is all feathers in no real pattern. There are a few pebbles filling in various spots.

For the piecing and the quilting, I used Aurifil thread. Of course I used Dream Cotton batting. The back is another Kaffe Fassett fabric - orange with purple polka dots. This piece came from Missouri Star Quilt Company.

We are keeping this quilt - I love the color and it is my first Kaffe Fassett!

As I was outside in 60+ degree weather this afternoon taking photos, I decided to include a picture of part of our garden by our drive looking towards the neighbor's yard. 

Spring really has arrived! Happy Easter!


  1. Very pretty! Congratulations on your finish! I've been sooo bad this year about finishing anything...but, I've been starting lots. I better get with the (finish) program!! eeek

  2. What a beautiful quilt! So glad you are keeping this one to enjoy. Love those pretty daffodils.

  3. What a beauty!Great showcase for those eye catching fabrics. I can almost see the quilting. For detail shots of the quilting use raking light across the quilt to show the definition of the stitching. I usually take a dozen shots to get one good one.

  4. I have a zipper/box bag made with that border fabric. Nice quilt. I like that pattern.

  5. I'm not much of a Kaffe fan, but your use of the fabric within a somewhat traditional quilt really appeals to me. Enjoy your newly completed quilt!!
