This quilt is the second one I did using Kaffe Fassett fabrics. The first one was the Fan pattern which I offered to my niece in Paris. For this second one, I chose the Spools pattern and thought of using more neutral tunes from Kaffe Fassett range in order to give it a warm kind of autumn harmony. I also hoped I would have enough fabrics and leftovers in my stash, and I would not need to buy more, but unfortunately when I displayed the blocks on the design wall, I realized that I did not obtain the wished result and that I would need to get some more fabrics to "break" the too warm harmony. Therefore I ordered some more neutral fabrics and enough yardage of the blue one to use it for the backing. I am quite pleased with the final result, I think this blue fabric cools the whole thing.

  18. Very nice! I love Kaffe Fassett fabrics; one Christmas before I became an avid quilter my mom bought me a nice big bundle and that was the beginning of my love affair with quilting! I have also wanted to do a spools quilt for my mom, a sewer herself. I was going to do it with my dad's old ties, as a memoriam, and make it a wall hanging. You have bumped that up to the top of my list.
