Hello Everyone,

I bet you have been wondering what I have done with all those Kaffe HSTs? Well, even if you weren't I am going to let you know. I have had a blast!!

This is the first quilt. If you remember, I said that I had enough to make two. This is the first layout. I am in love with it!! The color just makes my heart sing.

Definitely a shot of ROYGBIV!

Love the oranges, reds, and yellows.

So much summer here in these colors.

I actually laid this out several times until I got the right mix of colors transitioning from on to the other.

I had to lay this one out on the floor because my design wall has another project on it. So in laying it on the floor I actually had another arrangement done just for me by my kitty.

Of course I did not keep that arrangement, no matter how much my kitty insisted.

I decided to go with my layout, which in the end, will please me more in the long run.

So in the process of making this quilt, I had lots of Kaffe scraps. I made up a scrap bag and put it on my Etsy shop. It has all these fabrics and more!

I have also updated my website gallery with more fabulous customer quilts. One that has some Kaffe fabrics pieced into it, just beautiful.

Also, if you haven't heard yet, my 5th podcast is up and running. I talk, in depth, about thread and making the right choices for your projects. You can listen to it here or on iTunes.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We are going to be doing a little New England leaf peeping. Hopefully, I will bring back some wonderful fall photos to show you.

Until Next Time...
