Scrappy Kaffe!

Three quilts for Cheryl are quilted and ready for trimming. Cheryl loves Kaffe Fassett prints and has been using them for some time. She used lots of her scraps to make these guys... 
Wonderful way to make a scrappy Kaffe!
Quilted with a modern geometric design ~ Mid Century by Patricia Ritter. I followed the flow of the triangles to line up to the flow of the circles in the quilting. Lots of circles on the back too. Quilted with two Fantastico variegated threads (love!) Rainbow on the front and a pink to coral variegated on the back, with Quilter's Dream Blend batting.

More printelicious fabrics...

 Another fun scrappy quilt Cheryl made with one of Theresa Wright's patterns
 Quilted with a new to me pattern with lots of swirl and pearls
Rapunzel is a design by Anne Bright
 Quilted with three different Fantastico threads from Superior :0) Fun
and the wonderful backing! Yumm

The third is a great mix of color and fabrics. The deep gold, magenta and dark brown all played well together. I had the perfect Fantastico variegated magenta thread but opted for an Omni thread ~ Vanilla Wafer. There was so much print going on, a dark thread would have only gotten in the way! The gold thread was only quilted in the center field. In the dark brown border I used a light variegated thread, Lava, another thread from Superior. It's a thread they are discontinuing. It takes a larger needle for the 3 ply and a bit of fussing with the tension but it was well worth it! Love my Innova!

Quilting design in the center field is Quill b2b, also from Anne Bright
 and a border design ~ Quill with Flower that is part of a set 
(there are 4 different borders designed to frame her Quill b2b)

 The two fabric backing is folded against the front altho hard to see. 
There are allot of prints going on in this beauty!

Thank you Cheryl!
