Kaffe HST Quilt... Pieced, Quilted, Bound, and Complete!

Hello Everyone,

As promised, I am back with some Kaffe goodness. If you remember THIS post, I had completed just the top. Well, I am now completely done with this quilt and I just LOVE it!! The color, the design, just everything. So I wanted to share my quilt joy with you. I hope you like it as much as me.

We had a rather sunny day so I took advantage of the good lighting and took the quilt outdoors.



Here is the quilt draped across the deck railing.


A close up of the quilting. I just love the little ribbon inside the feathers. It was fun quilting this quilt.


Another view.


For the backing, I chose Kaffe's Asian Circles. It really just called for this print, as all the colors from the front of the quilt are present.


For the binding, I also chose Asian Circles, just in a different color way.


The binding needed to be darker to set the front of the quilt apart from it.


More of the quilting. You can see in the colors, I just quilted 1/4 inch in from the edge. I think that was all it needed.


The completed top. It will hang in my upper hall, just outside my studio for a while. My hubs asked me not to sell it just yet. But I am not sure that I want to anyway. I think the name of this quilt will remain "Riot of Color". What do you think?

I hope you enjoyed this Kaffe filled post! Next time, I am going to need your suggestions on a new project. I hope you will help! Don't forget to click HERE for more Kaffe goodness.

Until Next Time...

Dripping with gorgeousness. Amazing combo of color and quilting. Isn't that sweet of Mr. Canton Village to NOT want you to sell it.

Cindy said...

OH my word, Jackie, the quilt is bright, shiny and says "summer" to me. The idea of it is so simplistic - stripes - but the overall effect of it is WOW!

Rumi said...

I'd want to keep this beauty too! Marvelous!

Jen of ReannaLily Designs said...

Oh, good job Jackie. You know how I love those Kaffes.

Susan said...

Oh, it's gorgeous! I just love quilts with bright, yummy colors and great fabrics and if they have colors that are gradient, I'm all over them!

It's nice that your husband wants to keep it, too, because it shows his wonderful taste in your work.

The quilting is GREAT! The piecing? OMG. I feel the need to accumulate more Fassett fabrics!

"Riot of color" is a perfect name. I can understand why you'd be reluctant to sell this one! I am a huge Kaffe collector. My stash is quite massive. My DD told me just last week that she thinks I should make up all my other fabrics before diving in to the KF fabrics...she wants to "inherit" them!!

Quilt or Dye said...

It is so difficult to let each element of a quilt to shine on its own without competing with the other elemens of color, piecing, and quilting. I think you were very successful on this quilt with letting each element shine independently.

KG said...
