Kaffe Fassett “Facet” Quilt


This one was a labour of love – possibly my favourite quilt of all time, it took a fairly long time to make, but it’s utterly gorgeous, and I almost didn’t manage to give it away. But then two of my best friends went and got married, and it seemed like the perfect wedding gift (about 2 years after they actually got married – I had to make up for the fact that at the time all I bought them was a nice set of towels…)

First you cut all the strips up…

It always gets so much smaller when you stitch it all together!
