At the 2007 Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, Kaffe Fasset launched his new book KAFFE KNITS AGAIN and there was also a display of quilts he had made before he started to design fabrics.
I like his knitting books very much, though I don't knit these days, I just enjoy looking at the pictures and find them inspirational. I also prefer those early quilts, before he was designing fabric, when he was using what he could find, because that is the way I like to work. I love how he uses colour so boldly and on the way home from the show, decided that I would make a Welsh quilt but not in colours usually associated with them, but being bold like Kaffe!.
Some quilts are easier to make than others and this was an easy one, it came together quickly and painlessly!
I used the same layout plan and templates as that of Blanket Star (in an earlier post) but used only plain fabrics that I happened to have in my stash.
I have used this same layout plan a couple of times since with varying success. Actually I am at the final stages of quilting one at the moment and it has been a struggle, not nearly as easy as this one! Does anyone else have this problem?
Here is a closeup of some of the quilting -
