My book arrived, so that can be signed by Kaffe Fasset. Here are the fabrics I choose, I need four more, but I decided to buy them during the masterclass. The idea behind this quilt is: big prints in bright colours. Now it's cutting time, my Sara triangle ruler was a good decision this springtime in Seattle. It makes it very easy to cut the diamonds. Rob is away cycling through Germany for about 10 days, so it's quilting time all over the house. Next week Dieuwke, Willemijn and I have a quiltingweekend at my home. Oh I wish it was already the 25 of july. My sewing machine is calling me.

Life is wonderful. My biggest problem this morning was choosing between a collection antique roses fabrics or a collection wild bright colourful fabrics. On sunday 25 juli I will be following a masterclass "hot diamonds" from Kaffe Fasset in Deventer.
I think it will be very interesting. His colours and fabrics are completely opposite of the fabrics I used the work with, reproduction fabrics, or antique quilts.
So I kept myself and the owner of the Quiltshop 100 Roses for 1,5 hour busy, doubting doubting, what will I do, ...... antique fabrics or bright modern fabrics. Well, I finally choosed for the bright modern fabrics, I mean if you're going to follow a masterclass of Kaffe Fasset, at least you want to end up with a "Kaffe Fasset" Quilt.

I'm very busy with my antique quilttops, turning them into "new quilts". But sometimes it's just fun to make something quick of your scraps. And there are scraps enough in my boxes. This quilt took me about 6 soccermatches.

..... with UFO's (Unfinished Objects). And please don't think it has something to do with modern times. Last week I received this 13 lovely"calico blocks" (dated arond 1900-1930) from the USA. Some woman (just like us) started this quilt and didn't finished it for some reason. So you see UFO's are from all times.
....a and a good cup of tea : ).
