I've never made a quilt with Kaffe fabrics. I love them, they are gorgeous, but I have never been inspired to make a quilt with them. Not sure why. Well our current block swap at TQA is Kaffe nine patches. We each made 90 nine patches using Kona Porcelain and any Kaffe we wanted. Not surprisingly, mine were mostly polka dots and spotty fabrics.
On Saturday I stitched them all together. All 90 blocks in one quilt top. I was inspired by this quilt I saw on Pinterest. The quilt on Pinterest has a tiny scrappy border but I have decided to leave my topper with no border, more modern I think and I like it this way. I'm trying to decide what color to bind it in though, any advice? I don't want to do it in the porcelain because it will get dirty too fast.
Thinking maybe I will pick up one of the colors and bind it in a solid. Not sure yet...
Wow, what a great quilt with all those happy colors! Love it!
Your quilt looks fantastic hanging on the fence.. All your blocks worked so well together...
It's awesome and I love your Inspiration 9 patch as well. I think I may have to follow suit.... yeah right. I haven't sewn all summer and September is almost over. :(
Oh that is a STUNNING quilt! What about a dark colour for the binding like a dark navy?
