Kaffe Fassett Quilt 8

IMG_2836This quilt uses a combination of Kaffe Fassett large print fabrics with contrasting pieces of Fossil Fern (Benartex). The quilt turned out quite a bit larger than my other quilts – not quite a twin bed size. So the back had to have an embellishment to extends the single length of backing fabric I had.


The quilt was embroidered in my 360 X 350 hoop using a large design I created – that allowed me to quilt 4 blocks at a time!

  1. Sharron, all I did was take the leftovers, cut into 2 1/2” strips, stitched them end to end – jelly roll race) – until I had a strip wide enough to give me the added width I needed for the backing + 5” so I had added backing width for machine quilting in my embroidery machine.

    • Heather I didn’t have a pattern – I was working from a photo I’d seen on Pinterest. The quilt is really a 9-patch assembled from a combination of HST blocks with a solid in the centre of the nine. We’re I ever to do this quilt again I’d use a single light color fabric instead of the four different pale fat quarters that I used. All I can say is print the photo, analyze it, and you’ll find it’s a rather straightforward construction.
