About two years ago my daughter spied this quilt on the cover of Kaffe Fassett's "Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts" book. The book caught her eye from across the store, which is easy to imagine how when it comes to Kaffe Fassett. We both loved the pattern, which he calls Facet. I never would have been brave enough to cut all those big beautiful prints into little strips if I had not seen this book first.
It took me a year and a half to collect the fabrics. There are more than 80 different fabrics: mostly Kaffe Fassett, with some Phillip Jacobs, Tula Pink, Amy Butler and coffee themed prints thrown in. It is a diamond shaped string quilt. Not hard to make at all and lots of fun!
The quilt was LA quilted by Julie DeGrave of Pines and Needles Quilting in a wonderful swirly all over pattern and light peach thread. The first pic was while the quilt was on the design wall before I sewed on the zig zaggy border. And sewnsewer2 made the beautiful label for us. Those of you who are Princess Bride fans know what "As You Wish" means. My DD loves her quilt!
