Sneak-a-Peek-a Thursday with Kaffe Fassett

Kaffe Fassett 

Perhaps no other fabric designer has ever struck me so gloriously than Kaffe Fassett. The depth, color pathways, and texture the fabrics evoke make me feel extraordinarily happy. Now imagine your sister-in-law saying, "Take this, and quilt it however you want."

Seriously? Uh, I ran with it! 

It was an amazing experience to play on this with my long arm. I parsed it out for 3 days like good chocolate. It was over too soon, and Axel already has another loaded. I'll bind it this afternoon, and show you my Fassett Friday Finish tomorrow. 

 That has to be my shortest post ever, right?


  1. Quilting looks fantastic. I love Kaffe fabrics too, they are so intense and beautiful.

  2. Looks like you had a lot of fun with the quilting on that one - so creative!

  3. Is that possibly a soft minky backing I see? Quilting looks great. And you have to love the words "quilt as you want." Music to a quilter's ears.

  4. Love Kaffe! I pulled out my stash yesterday just to look at it! Gorgeous quilting...I wish I had a sister in law like you!

  5. I'm right there with you in loving Kaffe fabrics. Oh, the colours... pure joy! Love the quilting on this quilt - absolutely gorgeous.

  6. You had great fun playing! And short posts are good :)

  7. Your quilting looks amazing, looking forward to seeing the whole quilt now!

  8. Look at you go, girl! It's quite the learning curve, isn't it? But so much fun. What a lovely sister!


It's always enlightening to hear your thoughts or suggestions. I try to respond in a timely manner, but admit life is very full here! I will return comments online if it's of general interest, but offline if a personal response is more appropriate. Give me a shout with anything urgent at, and I'll try to get right back with you. While I believe in free speech, spamming will not be tolerated, and as in all our interactions, speak kindly.

If you want to be certain of a personal reply, leave your email or email me privately. Many people are not even aware when they have become a no-reply blogger. Yes, I know it's frustrating for us all.
