One of my favourites

I have long been a fan of Kaffe Fassett quilts and fabrics, and this quilt in particular I fell in love with.
It is called Handkerchief Corners and was on the cover of his book ‘Passionate Patchwork’ from 2001. I decided that it was no good just saying ‘one day’ – I had to go ahead and do something about it. Compiling the striped fabrics together took a little bit of hunting, and as there weren’t many sources of those particular fabrics in Australia (apparently the Kaffe stripes were from his earlier ranges; I think they are timeless!!) I had to go online and purchase them from overseas – my first foray.
Anyway, it was all good. It took a couple of years to make, in between other projects and work etc but I finally finished it late 2011 and quilted it on my long-arm. Deciding on a quilting design also took awhile. I wanted to maintain the look of the stripes and lines and not muddle them with circular stitching so decided on simple L-shaped lines within each block. It’s my favourite quilt (so far!)
