Back in the winter my friend, Dottie, and I decided to make
a quilt similar to one we had seen at a quilt show.
We gathered our Kaffe fabrics,
ordered the white with black polka dots
and began cutting wedges.
I. LOVE. THIS. QUILT!!!!!
I showed the pattern when the top was completed
and if I had seen just the pattern,
there is no way I would have made this quilt.
No offense, but the quilt on the pattern is not my taste at all.
The booth that sold the pattern had a quilt made from Kaffe and polka dots
and Dottie and I were sold.
Mine is back from the LAQ, bound and finished!!
Between the two of us we have quite a Kaffe stash.
There aren't too many fabrics repeated in this quilt.
This quilt required the Creative Grids Spiderweb ruler
and was used to cut both sizes of wedges.
Look at this!
Another pieced backing by me!!
I've had these peacock prints for years
and decided they would make a good backing.
I think I bought the fabric to make a stack and whack quilt
and that never happened.
One thing that surprised me was how well the binding coordinated
with the backing. I picked it because of the front and wasn't too
worried about how it would work with the back.
Turns out it looks great on both sides!
We went to town cutting the Kaffe wedges.
In fact, I have another top done and waiting to be quilted.
The border is different because I didn't have enough of the polka dot.
This was quilted with a swirl design with purple thread.
Kaffe and polka dots.
Does it get any better???
Be well and be safe.
