Have not made anything much lately as my father had a stroke. It was a great shock to everyone as his diet, weight and fitness level are exemplary. I can write these sentences now only because he appears to be recovering nicely. One worry free day was spent at a Kaffe Fassett workshop last week. There are certain teachers that should be on every quilter's young or old "bucket list" to take a class with and KF is one of them. It was challenging to work with such saturated and dense floral prints with nary a solid or white-based fabric in sight! The class was interesting as he and Brandon Mably teach by a kind of osmosis. It is hard to articulate by what means but they show you how to see color and light through their eyes. Both have an unerring sense of design. You work independently and they circulate the studio stopping only to pull out the perfect fabric that suddenly makes everything look so much better. The pattern is "Chintz" from "Kaffe Quilts Again".
On the left is mine early in the day and next to me is my friend Karen's. Hers turned out to be my favorite!
