    So fabric.com is having a sale on Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I gotta say that I'm not so attracted to this fabric, but it's clearly popular. So I thought I'd request photos of quilts people have made with this fabric. Maybe I'd change my mind if I saw some great examples of KF quilts made by real people.

    Please share. Thanks!

    I get so overwhelmed by the fabric choices. There is a blog called Exuberant Color by Wanda Hansen. She has some wonderful examples. She's real ;-)

    She fabulous!
    She does the most amazing value work primarily with Kaffe & Co. fabrics. Simple patches but stunning results.

    My favorite so far is the diamond quilt.

    What I like about Kaffe Fassett fabrics is that no matter how wild the fabrics are - they all seem to work together. Fabrics that you would not think would go together - DO! LOL

    I don't like most of his stuff. Too gaudy for me. That said, I do like some of it in moderation

    I love Kaffe Fassett fabrics and designs.

    I guess I have to say I'm"affiliated" since I've longarm quilted for him,for books and magazines.

    His fabrics are colorful and have a lovely hand. I don't think that Kaffe fabrics have to be used exclusively with ONLY Kaffe fabric. They are lovely geometrics and florals, often brightly colored. So they go with lots of other fabrics too. Hereare some examples.

    Here is one of my client's S quilts.

    Here's one of mine, a snowball 9patch:

    This is a scrappy of mine with a Kaffe fabric as the border:
