WIP Wednesday

Used some of my Kaffe Fassett stash to whip up this little quilt top for....me!

And this is what happens when you get a 5 yr old and an almost 2 yr old to "help" you take pictures outside:

Things start to fall apart fast.

And then this happens when you try and explain the quilt isn't "ready" for jumping on just yet.

Sigh. My helpers ran off to play on the swings, so I took a couple close-ups of the fabric eye candy.

Kaffe Fasset's prints are a little "busy" for me, especially when pieced in a scrappy style like this. But there's just something about this red palette of his that's making my soul sing.

Other WIPs are my King Spiderweb, lovebirds art quilt, and a few "other" projects I have rattling around in my head right now. More to come!

What are you working on this week?


PS - I've linked this post up with some of my favorites around the webs. Check them out!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Love those photos, especially the look of devastation on your wee one's face when she wasn't allowed to jump on it. Hahaha! :)

  2. This is simply BEAUTIFUL !!
    It's not too "busy" for me, I actually really love it. The colors are wonderful :)
    Looking at this quilt makes me smile :)

  3. I don't think it's to busy, either. I guess if you had chosen a complicated pattern, it might have been overload, but in a simple patchwork, it's just great. And you do have some adorable helpers!

  4. I love the vibrant colours! The photos of your little helpers are great :) My helpers usually have some kind of tantrum whenever we have a photoshoot!

  5. Yay to making something for yourself! Gorgeous, vibrant colours. Just the thing for autumn.

  6. Love it and your little helpers are so fun! I have that same problem with mine too. My hubby will hold it up and they will run from behind it lifting it up and over their heads as I try to take a picture. I think it would probably be faster without "helpers" but they're so cute who can resist?

  7. I do not think it is too busy at all, I agree with you... that fabric is luscious and magical! I love what you made! I am stopping by from the WIP blog hop. I have my WIPs up today if you want to stop by :)http://domesticdeficitdisorder.blogspot.com/2012/09/this-weeks-wips.html

  8. Such beautiful fabric and little helpers! I love reds and purples, and you've managed the "business" of the fabric marvelously.

  9. You know, I'm not usually a huge fan of Kaffe Fassett, but this quilt is stunning. You helpers are darling, and just about as helpful as my girls (ages 2 and 4).

  10. it is always hard to actually cut up the kaffe fabric...those little ones are so cute

  11. Gorgeous colors! Found you on Freshly Pieced. I have a few of those fabrics myself!

  12. Love the photos! Even if they deserted you, they are darling helpers!

  13. Nothing could have enhanced this lovely quilt more than the little feet in the first picture. Good for you to make something for yourself.
