Granny Squares in Kaffe Fassett
Quilt Name/Pattern: Granny Squares in Kaffe Fassett (Fabric)
Quilt Size: 56 inches by 51 inches
Quilt Maker: pieced by Ann Tarabini/ machine quilted by Ruthmary Schauer
Quilt Completion Date: finished in 2018
Extra Information: In the Fall of 2017, my husband and I participated in a shop hop in the San Francisco Bay Area. Each shop we visited passed out two fat quarters of Kaffe Fassett fabric. This fabric is very colorful with bold patterns.
When I pinned all the fat quarters on the design wall, I really liked what I saw – lots of bright fun. I decided to make some Granny Squares using these fat quarters as focal fabrics. I made 12 Granny Squares based on 12 Kaffe fabrics. I cut 5 inch squares from the focal fabrics and placed these in two rows between the Granny Squares. I use this quilt as example of focal fabrics in my classes.
The background (sashing/borders) is a white solid. I tried using a newsprint fabric but decided it looked best on the solid fabric version of this quilt. Ruthmary quilted flowers in each square. She quilted vines with leaves on the background fabric.
