This is my effort to reproduce a Kaffe quilt. I saw this quilt at Quilt Festival a couple of years ago and thought, 'We can do that with my scraps.' So then I organized a group of ladies at my church and we made big rectangles of same color scraps. Eventually, 2 years later, we got this done and I got to quilt it. Then it was donated.
I was given this quilt to do. It is an impressive work of art.
This is an old quilt top. Some of the fabrics still had feed sack label residue on them. Although it was not square or flat to start with it was fun to work on.
A friend and Customer called and asked if I could quilt this quickly if she made it. So she made it and got it to me later the same day. I quilted it that night and got it to her the next day....in time for her to bind it before the baby shower of her friend.
I was commissioned to make 3 quilts for a customer this summer. Two of them were of embroidered linen. Beautiful fabric.These 2 quilts are queen size.
If you are considering doing this consider that when fabric is embroidered it may be pulled off grain, this was, and not always centered, this wasn't. To match the motifs some areas had to be eased in to fit. Basting the seam over the flowers worked better than sewing and ripping and sewing and ripping..... Challenging but successfully completed!
