Sunday Stash #111

I am a huge fan of all of Kaffe Fassett's work and really enjoy his use of color in all of his projects; from embroidery to patchwork and quilting.  And so, it is no surprise that these new stripe fabrics have been added to stash:


From top to bottom -  Serape in the following colorways: 
  • Green
  • Red
  • Pastel
  • Antique, and
  • Bold

If you've had a chance to browse through Kaffe's new book - Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in Sweden - you may have noticed several quilts that have been made using these fabrics including Striped City as featured on the cover:


as well as Barcode by Kaffe Fassett:


Either - or perhaps both - of these quilts are in my future ...

Enjoy Sunday!

  4. I, too, am a KF fan from long before he even got involved in quilting. My most recent purchase is "Simple Shapes, Spectacular Quilts".

    Those fabrics are gorgeous!

  7. These look lovely! I've thought of ordering some of these (never seen them in person), but wasn't sure. I'm looking forward to seeing how you use them (and seeing Kaffe's new book)!

  10. Those stripes are just wonderful, to die for colors! I've always wanted to do a striped quilt, maybe I should consider these!! Yummy.
    I have a couple of Kaffe's books and he does use color so well and is bold about it and I love that. I really yearn for those stripes.

  11. Very like these fabrics. And the bar-code quilt. We here in Hungary there is no such fabric. I need to find American sponsor who donate tissue for me: D

  12. I love KF stripes too and I dream about making a quilt from it, but so far I've seen only woven stripes (and I was a little afraid of sewing from wovens). Is these are also wovens on regular quilting cotton?
