Wow – long time, no post! Not that I haven’t been busy! Jim and I went to Paducah and came home with a boatload of fabric! One piece I wanted to make is using a pattern by Kaffe Fassett, and I even used one or two of his fabrics for this. At first, I wasn’t sure what to think of it, but now I am attached to this little quilt.
It is made of three different sizes of squares, put together in an interesting way. I wanted it to be mainly yellows and oranges, but found that as I worked, other colors were needed to provide some contrast. Still, it is very ME.
I made it at 2/3 the original size, and it is long an skinny. If I do it again, I will make it either a bit wider, or a bit shorter. The watermelon fabric that we bought at Eleanor Burn’s store, Quilt in a Day, really makes this piece!
