What in the world? How could anyone in their right mind purposely cut up some very beautiful Kaffe fabric just to sew it back together again in random patterns? Good questions. I love all these fabrics separately, but I really wanted to combine them to make new fabric for my BOM quilt project. I started this project with very different colors before I discovered these. Now, I am redoing it all to make a really bright and fun quilt to cuddle under this winter. As I was making all this fabric (so far it is 24" x 32"), I was thinking about what color background fabric I could use. I have a nice piece of KF shot cotton in persimmon, but that was just too much red. I then started looking at Kona solids. I finally narrowed it down to two - Aloe and Jade. They came today. The Aloe is beautiful, but not strong enough to stand up to the reds, so . . . . .
. . . . Jade it is.
Tomorrow, I will start building the blocks. Something tells me I am going to have to make more fabric, but that is just fine with me.
This quilt is so beautiful - I love the colors.
THe jade is perfect, but what color is aloe?
Have you considered not cutting it up! It looks beautiful as it is. However, having recently made one little block from made fabric, I do understand that it would take a lot(!) of time to make a whole quilt from it. Whatever you do, Miki, I'm sure it will turn out lovely.
So, so pretty!
You took beautiful fabric and made it completely fabulous!! I love it! The Jade was perfect.
The red looks gooooood!!
