There is nothing like a little Kaffe to brighten up the month of December. Pam brought me this gorgeous sunny quilt made with Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I am almost caught up with December quilts, now that it is the end of January! I wasn’t sure how I felt about the border when Pam first showed it to me but once it was quilted I really enjoyed the contrast. Sorry for the fuzzy picture.
We quilted it with a simple meander that will really show the texture once the quilt is washed.
I really love it when quilters use the last of their blocks to make a back wider or just to add interest. I believe it gives you two quilt in one. If you make a back like this it is important to make your row off centre.
Most long arm quilters prefer a horizontal row of blocks instead of vertical. Horizontal rows do not wind around the roller bar many times. (The explanation for this is really a post for another day.)
Don’t you just love the back that Pam made.
