    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
