Kaffe Fassett Romance

SANY0200 I just purchased the Kaffe Fassett “Quilt Romance” book and have been drooling over it for a couple of nights. There is one quilt that keeps jumping out at me called “Pickle Dish”.

It is rated 3 star which means a more experienced quilter, mmm doesn’t sound like me I’m probably more a 2 star rising. But I love this quilt.

So what to do, I wish i could find someone local that was perhaps running a class on this, but I don’t even think any of the local SANY0201

shops sell his fabric range, grr. It has a lot of curved piecing which I’ve never done (i have watched U-Tube videos on it, does that count?)  It also has paper piecing which i have done so that's a plus. Maybe I could make a sample block, mmm not sure if that is or should be my priority this side of Christmas, maybe the holidays. Also I am a bit daunted by the huge fabric pallet that Kaffe uses in his quilts.

I think i will just have to drool over it and let it fill my dreams for a bit longer. I know I might be able to convince a few friends to do it with me, now that's a thought. I’ll let you know how that progresses. Not that they have ever done any of the skills required but what's that thing about a problem shared………………………

Merry Christmas Annie

  1. You skills will improve during the making of a difficult quilt. What first seems difficult will be easier at the end. I think you can do it (but not in christmastime).
