I worked on a project this week that called for mostly Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I must confess - I don't own a lot of Kaffe fabrics. Mainly because they intimidate me. Silly, I know. He is an artistic genius, in my opinion, and I, quite frankly, don't really know how to use his fabrics yet. I watch people use them in applique and patchwork designs and I'm in awe. I don't know what it is - maybe it's that I'm not mature enough in my quilterhood to look at his fabrics and know eactly what I would do with them. I don't know, but when I'm stumped like this by something that I see others doing with ease, well, my inner competitor kicks in.
Anyhoo, I had to order some fabric to complete this project and I went straight to Jackie from Canton Village Quilt Works to get it. She uses his stuff all the time and carries a really great selection in her shop. And even in the aftermath of a major hurricane, she managed to get my order to me in a few days. Love her!
So now I'm thinking about Kaffe combos - what can I make with his stuff. So I pulled what I had and some other juicy fabrics that I thought would go and now my mind. is. racing with ideas!!
