A day well spent.

I spent today making a start on my Joseph's Coat Quilt with Kellie Wulfsohn from Don't Look Now.  We had a starter class at Patchwork House   in Hawthorn, Melbourne.  I've had all the bits and pieces for this quilt sitting on my sewing bench in a little pile, but I've been reluctant to actually start in case I made a mistake.  The quilt is made using a technique new to me - applique using a water soluble stabiliser. 
So far so good with this block.  You just have to love Kaffe Fassett fabric.  I think this quilt will lend itself to found time whilst waiting at swimming.  This quilt will look great on my bed.


  1. Hi Kerry! It has been really lovely getting to know you! Thanks for coming along today!
    Your quilt is going to be absolutely beautiful with that stash of yours!!!!!

  2. Kerry, three of us in Iowa are making the Joseph's Coat blocks too, without the benefit of a getting started class! Lucky you! We've each stitched only one block, and have struggled to to that. It's difficult to figure out the perfect point turning and glueing techniques. Maybe you'll be able to offer us some tips.

  3. So beautiful! What's not to love about Kaffe's fabrics??! This will be a stunning quilt.

  4. For a first timer at applique you have done very well and the fabric you have chosen is beautiful it will make a great quilt.

  5. Oooo, this is going to be one gorgeous quilt - perfect fof Kaffe fabrics. Looking forward to seeing the results. So is this the new obsession to take the place of the hexies?
