    I finally finished the binding on this quilt. It only took me a year! I bought the Kaffe Fassett fabrics in a kit at the very first quilt show I attended last year. Wish I had a yard of each print! I really adore his stuff. The backing had to be pieced. Backings always mess me up! Bones thinks it's his quilt. Silly dog.

    The gorgeous quilting was done by Eagle Mountain Quilting: http://www.eaglemountainquilting.com/

    No, I didn't plan it like that!

    Awesome! That is gorgeous. Is it just triangles? Looks like a perfect 1st quilt to try.

    Love it. His fabrics are my FAVORITES right now! I just got his new book called Quilt Romance...I pretty much plan to make every quilt in the book and hang them in my house - would make great wall pieces!!

    Beautiful fabrics......hard to describe just "how" beautiful they are....

    I am glad to hear of a source for machine quilting--my choices are limited where we live. How long do they usually take?

    Beautiful! Love those fabrics and simple quilt design--and nice backing too. So KF is a he--didn't know it was a person rather than a company name.

    Joan, Eagle Mounting Quilting is very fast! They are quite reasonable too. Even with shipping, the quilting costs are usually much less expensive than my local quilt shop. And my local shop is so backlogged most of the time.

    Kaffe Fassett is a person! Here's his site: http://www.kaffefassett.com/Home.html

    Sorry I spelled his name wrong in the title. Can't fix it now.

    A classic, understated Chele special!

    Just kidding you, girl, it's beautiful! :D :D :D

    And your little Bones looks like my Dougal Dog - is he a dachshund?

    Beautiful quilt.

    Bones is a miniature dachshund. It's really funny how many quilters have doxies. Here's his usual pose on the couch. Note the dog-made nest.

    Thanks for the information. I have the same problem locally,too. Most of the quilts I make are for gifts and I can't wait months and months to have them quilted. Their website is very user friendly and I think I'll give them a try.

    I really love the K.F. fabrics, and your quilt turned out great! I'm in love with your little inspector, too. Wow, what a cutie.

    WOW! What a beautiful quilt and what a great job you did! When I "grow up" (LOL, I'm 58), I want to quilt like that!!! I love Kaffee's quilts and own several of the books, but I am afraid to start one as my quilting is VERY basic. I am enjoying this great Board and am hoping to learn and get inspired.

    Thanks all!

    Bones is TOO cute! I have two strays who are my babies. Much larger than Bones, though. I also have 19 parrots (all adopted) and one bunny, also a stray my husband found in the part when he was tiny. We have a ZOO!
