Rays of Sunshine - All Kaffe Collective Block of the Month!

Has anyone ever done a Block of the Month in all Kaffe Collective fabrics?  I loved fussy cutting the prints and setting them against a light "Spots" background.  Really loved making color-graded setting triangles in a huge array of red and yellow prints!  It just says "happy happy happy!"

Each pattern (MSRP $39.95) comes with all the individual block & finishing patterns printed in full color so they can be shipped a month at a time.  A Shop Pack with cutting instructions can be purchased directly from the designer. 952-471-0131 or  lori.allison@hotmail.com
Color My FRESH & MODERN World is a new spin on a traditional pattern.  I used all the bright pastel prints and spots from the Kaffe Fassett collection along with Kona Cotton in "Snow" to make this fresh and fun quilt.  Each block pieces in about half an hour and the real fun is quickly seeing how your fabric choices turn out!

Pick-Up Sticks!

Pick-Up Sticks! is a fun way to use all the big bright prints that you just can't cut up.  I used Kaffe Fassett prints and plain "shot" cottons (yarn dyed, homespun type fabrics) to accent each print.  I love the play of large and small prints in dark and light values.  And it's very fun to piece.
Happy Quilting.......Lori Allison
