    ISO Kaffe Fassett fat quarters

    I'm making a Dear Jane quilt with Kaffe Fassett fabric and am in need of more fabric. I've exhausted the Kaffe sources locally and have been searching for an online store that will sell fat quarters or 1/4 yard cuts. The minimum cut at most places online is 1/2 yard and I don't need that much. I can find fat quarter bundles but don't have a choice with the prints when buying a bundle. Any leads for stores that will sell fat quarters or 1/4 yd. cuts of specific prints? Thanks!

    and

    http://www.stitchinpost.com/kaffeprints14.html lets you buy 1/4 yd cuts

    or you could check out the FQ Bundles on www.fabric.com as you can see what is in them. At least there, you would have free shipping if over $35 and check out www.retailmenot.com for coupon code.

    Thanks for replying, I'll investigate those sites. I'm trying to use different fabric for each square, or at least different sections of fabric since I'm doing around the world. The search continues! Here's a picture of my design wall from last November. I have almost half the squares done now.

    Very pretty! I never would have thought that Kaffe Fasset would have been a good choice for DJ because his prints are so big, and the DJ blocks are so small. I can see though that you fussy cut some of them to highlight large flowers etc. Well done!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I think this is the first DJ I actually really like, usually they are just too scrappy for my taste, But I really like your colors, very pretty

    Here is the quilt that was my inspiration. It was on the Green Fairy Quilts blog. Normally I don't like Kaffe Fassett fabric at all, but I fell in love with this quilt.

    Maybe a layer cake of fabric would do. Here is a 40 different Kaffe Fassett 10" square pack

    I think your DJ quilt will be beautiful So colorful,I love Kaffee and have been collecting fat quarters at every chance I get. there are several sellers on eBay who sell fat quarters and combine shipping so cost is reasonable. I have bought from them without any problems and good selections. I started civil war type DJ years ago,have about 20 blocks done.

    I am not able to find any coupon there and also searched another coupon site Ezcouponsearch but not finding any coupon there though I have found some amazing discounts on these sites previously. Any body who can tell me where I can old things regarding sewing.

    I just typed Kaffe Fassett into an ebay search and a ton of stuff came up. From remnants to fat quarters to 10inch square packs. I think a bundle/pack is the way to go. Even if you don't use everything for this quilt, you may need it for another quilt! Just make sure the seller has great feedback.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I found out that I could buy quarter yards at Glorious Color online and used that as my primary source but I also got some fat quarters on eBay. I have finished the last block and after seeing it all laid out I've decided to re-do about 5 of the blocks with different fabric. Here's a picture of it on the floor with the top row of triangles - all the other triangles are done but I ran out of floor room. Now on to the sashing, and I'm thinking about trying quilt-as-you-go rather than sending it to a long-arm quilter. Just not sure how QAYG would go on such small blocks. I highly recommend trying a Dear Jane if you are up for a long-range project with some challenging blocks. I've been sewing for 30+ years but I learned a lot, and my skills with applique got waaayyyy better in the process of doing this quilt.

    Have never been interested in a DJ quilt until I saw yours. It is stunning - and I love Fasset. Almost - almost need to put on bucket list.

    I LOVE that Dear Jane quilt. I think it is my favorite one that I've ever seen on line. Other than the original which I've seen in person....Heck...I like it even more than my own. lol
