You all know how I love Kaffe Fabrics. I love the rich saturated colors and the big beautiful designs.
But I think for most people who even love the color of his fabrics get side tracked by some of the bigger modern designs. ( same with Amy Butler prints) . They look at them and wonder”What can I do with these” or “I can’t cut that” It’s really all about color ( unless you need a focus fabric) because when you cut them they are just rich and beautiful colors.
These two quilts were made by Delores ( she always does a great job) and they are a perfect example of taking a fairly simple pattern and using his fabrics to make something spectacular.
This first one is a simple log cabin block:
I also love the white fluffy minkee she used for the back..it makes the quilting stand out a bit more. But also screams COMFORT!
It’s difficult to see but Delores did use several blues and reds in the blocks….all the same colors but different patterns.
There are several ways to arrange these simple blocks to make dynamic designs( that’s why we all love a log cabin block) . I quilted feathers, swirls,loops and fans.
And here’s the back:
This next one is also Kaffe…..mixed with Black and white. WOWZA! that just sets off all the color to help showcase it. These are courthouse steps blocks. Close to a log cabin…just as simple to construct. I quilted flowers in all the red areas, swirls in the black to keep up the definite line fracture of color.
Again small strips….POP of color.
And the back.
Beautiful quilts…Thanks Delores! Love them! It’s a pleasure working with you.
