Kaffe Fasset and Friends :)


On Sunday I went to my once a month class called "Kaffe Fasset and Friends" at a store called the Bernina  Connection. LOVE this monthly get-together. As I'm sure you have figured out...we make quilts with our Kaffe Fasset stashes!!!! Yummy!!!!

Above, is Kate...and this is her very FIRST quilt!!! We are very proud of her!!!

 Then we have Tova...who used the more muted Kaffe's that she had to achieve this wonderful delight:):)
 ...and then she brought in 3 ring note books that she covered in Kaffe (on the right)..She is going to share how she did this at our next meeting.
....and then Barb...wowed us with her quilt that she is working on...she has more to do on it...but, brought us the quilt so far!!! LOVE the colors!!!!
 ...and then there was Me....I brought in my Queen size Kaffe quilt for the girls to see. I quilted this myself on my Bernina. Very happy with this quilt...Kaffe's fabric just makes me soooo HAPPY:):)

Well, I am still working like crazy on my new art space. And my house....got company coming...Ms. Marianne, and my boys are coming home for an early Christmas!!! I NEED to get my house clean and back in order:):)

Thanks for stopping by, and leaving me a "How-do-you-do"
