Kaffe-licious Schoolhouse! Quilt Market #3

Hello Everyone,

Just two pieces of business first, my newest podcast, episode 6, is up and running. You can find it HERE or in iTunes. Also my October Newsletter is also been sent out, but you may also find it here. So now on to the fun stuff!

Here is another of my MOST favorite schoolhouse classes that Pam and I chose. It is all Kaffe all the time. Well, Liza Prior Lucy and Brandon Mably were also there. Definitely an extra added bonus.

We were treated to seeing the newest Kaffe Fassett Collective Fabrics. Also, we viewed quilts from his newest book Quilt Romance that many of you now have, including me!! Yippee!! I have a signed copy by Kaffe himself.

Okay, on with the show...


The creative genius himself!


Brandon Mably modeling a messenger bag in his new fabric.

Cool new umbrella and a doggie rain jacket. These are, of course, made in water repellent Kaffe fabric. Genius, I say!


New yummy fabric.


More new!


Great stripe.


Oooh, gotta love this colorway.


New fabrics for the liberty line.


Laminated Kaffe fabric made into an apron.


Yes, you can now get Kaffe reading glasses. See Liza there in the background.


Kaffe covered journals.


Yes, Yes, Yes, another BIG book from Kaffe and Liza due out next year!!!!


Quilt Romance.


Wonderful.


By Kim McClean.


More by Kim.


Just to die for!


Stars, see that blue green ring of stars?


Modeling the umbrella, no rain inside though.


He looks great quilt covered, don't you think!

Hope you enjoyed this installment! Check back really soon...

Until Next Time...

Doesn't Kaffe know that it's bad luck to open an umbrella inside LOL? His fabrics are so gorgeous -- I need to get more of them 'cause I just don't have very many. It sounds like you had a fabulous time!

Cathi said...

I have a signed copy of one of his knitting books and even though I no longer knit, I do treasure it. I love what he's done for the quilting world just as much as I loved what he did for the knitting world. :-)

I have been enjoying your posts immensely. Very busy here so I haven't been so good to leave comments. But this post - oh my! I am green w/ envy. What an experience. And to see the Lollypop Trees w/ a dark background done by the designer herself? I am so floored. I will be looking at that one repeatedly for sure! Thanks for the ride, Jackie! :) Mary Beth
