Kaffe Fassett

i've heard of KF for years now, and have a couple of his books even--but mostly, i've admired him from afar. just recently i started buying his fabrics, and wow--are they beautiful! this is my latest acquisition--a bunch of 5" squares from this etsy store--which i heard about from the Selvage Blog. (that's a really fun blog btw--it's amazing what people will think of to do with their selvages. i, of course, have been collecting mine now but still haven't actually started a project yet.)

for those of you who know me, i'm cheap cheap cheap--and usually only buy things on sale. but i think this set of blocks is totally worth it 'cos i got a smidgen of 45 different fabrics and it'll totally pump up the volume on the Dresden Plate quilt i'm working on (see previous post for pictures).

not much sewing these days so not much to show. i'm working on tearing out all the paper backing of the half-square triangles that i did last week, and also cutting off the rabbit ears (man--that's tedious work) but i did catch up on The Daily Show while doing these chores!

(obviously you can google the great man yourself, but here's a link to his website)
