Kaffe Fasset (and friends) Quilts
This was made by one of his friends. I just loved the way she had used the colours - it just glowed.
I loved the log cabin effect on this one.
This was called Seahorses, if I remember correctly.
This had an interesting combination of colours, but I have to say, the Welsh quilts called me louder . . .
I think this is another one I forgot to turn. I am envious of the curved seams on some of the blocks. (The darker border inside of the lime greens one.)
A bright quilt for a winter's day, though I'm not usually keen on orange.

This one is even better for cheering up a winter's day. I don't think I could be as bold as Kaffe Fassett with the colours.
They were all very beautiful, and very colourful, very skilfully designed and my daughter loved them. If I could take one home, it would be this zig-zag one above.
BTW, the cooty Welsh quilt had its soak last night. The colours - beneath the dirt I could see it was a dark red material matched with a purple - didn't run, but oh my GOODNESS, the water was like black tea within seconds . . . Anyway, I soaked it overnight and dried it on the line today. The blanket in the middle had just rotted completely and some of the top too, but the back shows enough of a pattern for me to photograph tomorrow. I made out a central medallion with Elder (?) leaves, and fan type pattern, and elsewhere more leaves and various geometric infills. The stitching has disappeared in places, along with strips of the material on the front!
