Oh yeah, and it was all the fun that you would imagine it to be!
Up in my sewing room sitting in a rather in-the-way spot between my "thoughtful spot" chair and the ironing board, you'll trip over my very large, too-heavy-to-move stash of Kaffe Fassett fabrics.
Behind this large tub sits 2 smaller, more manageable tubs of Kaffe fat quarters and pieces that I've cut.
I have dreamed for years of making the blue quilts - Kaffe Fassett has 2 different blue quilts in 2 different books, and I love them both. Over there on my sidebar I have listed as a 2011 goal to make a Blue Kaffe. Here, see for yourself how irresistable they are:
The other one is Economy Blue:
And it is featured in this book:
I have sighed and dreamed over these 2 quilts ever since I bought these books, however long ago that was. I have definitely outdone myself in the prepping department: I have uber-yards of blue Westminster Fiber fabrics in those tubs I showed you. *grin*
So I pulled it all out today and spread it out on the kitchen table. Feast your eyes on this! Careful, you may swoon, so perhaps you'd better sit down!
A gorgeous sight, isn't it?
So I got right to work and have all the cutting done for Portugal Blue. I plan to get Economy Blue cut out before I call it a day and head to bed. The Tribe is playing out in Arizona, so we'll be up late watching the game. I will cut and listen . . .
