This quilt was inspired by another design in a Kaffe Fassett book. I am really into the striped fabrics right now so that was my starting point. Then I had a lot of fun adding bits of color to jazz it up. In a bunch of the little bits, I tried to capture the image of what I liked most about that particular piece of fabric, like a cat’s face or a fighting knight, or even just a beautiful color.
As I was finishing up the final border, I ran out of fabric and had to insert a lighter shade from the same fabric collection. I added the red to help it stand out more and really liked it.
I found this amazing fabric (the solids with a dotted look and texture) and wanted to still play around with the idea of adding pieces of fabric to the squares and rectangles. I decided to make funky diamond shapes and use those all over the quilt.
