Kay's Lorna Doone

Remember back during quilt camp that Kay was working on a Kaffe Fassett quilt called Lorna Doone? Well, she sent me a picture of the finish and I wanted to share it here.

Obviously, the large flower blocks are all fussy cut. They are surrounded by the wonderful blue dot fabric, and these blocks are set together with a sashing that features more wonderful KF fabric and hour glass blocks. Fantastic. Here is the post from quilt camp, if you want to see her start.

I pulled this picture of the book from Amazon. If you are familiar with Kaffe Fassett's patterns, you know that he is a template user - no strip piecing for him! Kay says she recommends reading his directions carefully, and she reports that she was able to do the quilt without using a template! She also recommends using a 7.5" square ruler for fussy cutting the flower blocks.

Here is a picture from the book of the original Lorna Doone.

All this talk of Kaffe Fassett has me thinking about my own KF quilts to do. I have one that needs to be quilted for DD1, and a request for a purple KF from DD2.Oh! I have another! I started a KF Tumbler Quilt for myself, and I have it on my UFO to finish list. There's much to be done - always.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

  1. I believe the reason Kaffe uses "template" is because of the international audience. With a template one does not have to worry about metric or other. I always measure the template and go from there.
