|Close up of string pieced diamonds|
Do you LOVE color? If you do, and you love bold design, then it is a pretty safe bet that you love Kaffe Fassett fabrics!
It took me a year and a half to gradually collect the fabrics. There are more than 80 different fabrics: mostly Kaffe Fassett, with some Phillip Jacobs, Tula Pink, Amy Butler and coffee themed prints thrown in. It is a diamond shaped string quilt. Not hard to make at all and lots of fun to play with all those fabrics! Can you see some of your favorites in there?
The picture below is of the quilt top while it was on the design wall, before I sewed on the zig-zaggy border.
I had a little help from my friends: Julie DeGrave (Pines and Needles Quilting) quilted the quilt in a beautiful swirling all over design and Dawn (sewnsewer2 on The Quilting Board) made the beautiful label for us. Those of you who are Princess Bride fans know what "As You Wish" means.
Kaitie looks pretty pleased, doesn't she?!
