Stone Flower by Kaffe

Last week I was at one of my local quilt shops, and I saw a piece of Kaffe fabric in the bargain box.  It was a fabric that I'd never had it my stash, so of course it was calling my name. How could I leave it there?

 



So I bought it home with me and immediately started going through my stash to see what else I had that would work with it.


It turns out I had quite a bit, because it's my favourite blue/purple colour.  

The Stone Flower piece that I bought is a Free Spirit sateen wide back, so slightly heavier than quilting cotton, but still perfectly fine for the front of a quilt.  I'm thinking that I'll made a feature of the motif and build a medallion quilt around it maybe.  I had a quick flick through some books and liked these ideas:

From Quilts in the Cotswolds



from Quilts in Italy


Although now that I look at Cloudy Skies again, I think I mainly like it for the colours.  I'd prefer to see larger pieces of the other fabrics, like in Glamping Medallion above.  

So this might be something fun to start between Christmas and our holiday in January.  


Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

What a beautiful fabric. And on my monitor, it looks like the new Pantone color of the year, so very on-trend! Your fabric pull will make another wonderful quilt. Who knew a bargain find would lead to such inspiration?

That piece of Kaffe was surely irresistible! And the last pattern you have pictured is just like the Linda from Kokaquilts has just finished! SNAP! You will have another beauty using all your wonderful Kaffe stash!
