Blogger’s Quilt Festival

 

 

I am joining Amy's Creative Side for the Fall Blogger’s Quilt Festival.

I am a Kaffe Fassett wannabe. I love his fabric and his quilt designs. I often buy a kit because I no longer have the stash that I used to and the fabrics are so stunning that I only want to use them for one quilt.

This quilt hangs over the railing at the cabin.

The centers of the blocks were fussy-cut from Kaffe’s Target Fabric.

The pattern is called Cinnamon Ginger and is by Lori Allison. The long arm quilting was done by Len at Coastal Quilter in Bradenton, FL.

Please be sure to go to the Quilt Festival and see all the beautiful quilts!

Gorgeous quilt, Carol! You did a great job. I love Kaffe Fassett as well. I made a quilt top with some of his fabrics, but I have yet to quilt it.

Dazzling quilt with the fussy cut centers. I could look at this for an hour! Thanks for sharing your quilt's story :)

After seeing your quilt, I have once again decided that my next quilt will be in purples and browns :-)
Lovely colours!

I love those rich colours!! Great photos!

Chris said...

Great colors. I like how the center circles pick up in the border fabric.

Cathi said...

I love the Kaffe fabrics too -- and your quilt is a beautiful way of showcasing them!

Carol said...

Lots of very pretty fabrics to look at in your quilt.

Rebecca said...

What a colorful and busy quilt-I don't think I've ever seen one like it-quite extraoridinary!!!

Lynne said...

Gosh I shouldn't choose faves and anyway I would have a few (well a lot) of faves from this QBF but, if I was allowed to steal one quilt from the festival, I think it might have to be this one - I love the fabrics, the shapes, the centred targets and the border is knockout and I love the neutral bringing it all together. Really wonderful.

Martine said...

les tissus de kaffe sont mis en valeur dans ce superbe ouvrage,felicitation

Angie said...

The border is awesome - very fun colors and contrast.

Eileen said...

What a great graphic quilt and it really shows off that Kaffe fabric to a T. Thanks.

I love your Kaffe quilt, Carol. It's just beautiful, the colors, the pattern and all just work so well. Thanks for sharing it.

Karen said...

Bright and vibrant. What a great quilt!

Cathy said...

Your quilt is glorious, Carol!!!! I have enough Kaffe fabrics to start a quilt but I just can't decide on a pattern. I want it to be just right and am a little afraid to get into it. I love the fabrics you've chosen. Wow, that's stunning.

Carol: I am not a quilter but am a quilt lover and yours is beyond gorgeous. My dear friend, Sheila, is a quilter and a Kaffe fabric lover. I have a quilt hanging in my dining room that she gave me for my birthday several years ago. I'll have to post it soon because it is very special to me. Sheila attends quilting shows and classes. She participates in the quilt show (Fine Art of Fabric I think it's called) at the Chicago Botanic Garden every November. Small world!

Best,
Bonnie

I love how the targets are used in both the fussy centers of each block, and in the wide border. It looks perfect in your cabin!

That was an inspired idea to fussy cut the targets. So often, I feel overwhelmed by all the design elements in Kaffe's fabrics. Yours has enough peaceful spots to let the others shine. Lovely!
