Kaffe Fassett Quilt 3

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The quilting embroidery is one I designed myself - it was set up to quilt the sashing and the small squares in the corner of each block as well as the larger square in the block. Worked out quite well. I used a variegated grey thread on the top/a variegated purple thread on the bottom. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I stitched in the ditch to quilt the sandwich, then I embroidered each block. Because I wanted the sashing to be embroidered, I set up a larger embroidery to include the sashing (and the small square blocks) - there's a photo of the embroidery in the set above so you can see how it was set up. I hooped each block and used precise positioning on my machine to make sure the embroidery stitched in the right place - I wasn't dead on a few times, but the fabrics are so strong the eye doesn't pick that up!

What you will need

  • I had a selection of Kaffe Fassett fat quarters - I used about 1/3 of them to make this quilt - I'll use the others to do other things with.
