Even Weave Finish

Two weeks ago I picked up two quilts from my LAQ;
the first one was En Provence
and the second one was Even Weave.
This quilt is in Kaffe Fassette's book
"Shots and Stripes."

There is something about his striped fabrics
that just make my heart sing.

This quilt is so soft and drapey (Is that a word? :D)
Years ago I made another quilt from Kaffe stripes
and shot cottons and to this day, this is the favorite quilt
of everyone in my family. We fight over it some nights. 
This one might have to stay in my house to give us two to fight over.

I love the quilting design and the deep purple thread my 
LAQ used to quilt it.

The most difficult part of making this quilt was making sure
the blocks stayed in order when sewing the rows together.
 It went together very quickly otherwise.

I picked a solid fabric for the back...
perfect for showing off the quilting.
The back looks like it could be a Hawaiian quilt.

Love it, love it!

Happy Quilting!

I would not have thought of putting all those strips together. BUT it sure works and is gorgeous!! I noticed Tuesday when I visited a fabric outlet there were lots of stripes in the darker color ways.
