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.

finished smallerI 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!
