a start

This is a section of what is up on my "design wall" (batting) today.

Attending Kaffe Fassett's lecture Concentrate on Color, a month ago, I had the pleasure of both seeing and touching this very pretty Diagonal Madness Quilt:

I just fell in love right there...

When I received his book Country Garden Quilts, a week later, I stumbled across the design again. What can a girl do?

After digging through my stash, doing some additional fabric shopping, washing and cutting the fabric, I was ready to trow myself into the madness...

Love the craziness and colors. So far, so good....

Have a great weekend!

Oh, how pretty! You have put your collection of Kaffe fabrics to good use, Marit. I too fell in love with this layout; so simple and so stunning.

I was just looking at that one in his book too. You have a great start on it. After doing the Beaded Curtain one (which I modified slightly) I already have some spare parts ready to start this one. I am jealous that you got to see the original and I didn't.
