KBFG to the Quilter Today

Whoo-hoo! Finally my long arm quilter, my friend Sandy, is ready for my KBFG quilt. She keeps a waiting list and I put my name on it when she quilted the last quilt for me, about nine months ago. I'll add my name to her list again now, because I'm sure I'll have something that needs to be quilted by the time it comes up.

So what is KBFG? It's a Kaffe & Batik Flying Geese top that I finished a couple summers ago. I still love it. I'm definitely keeping this for me!



Look at this backing - It's all names of colors in 2" high script. I worked for many years as a color specialist in apparel and footwear product development and part of my job was naming colors each season. How cool is that backing!!!

So Sandy and I are getting together for lunch - gyros, yum! - and then she'll take this and perform her magic on it. I can't wait to see it!

  2. That is a wonderful quilt top! I don't think I could ever stick with making that many flying geese. Your background fabrics collection is great and adds so much to the Kaffe fabrics.

  4. Oh WOW!! I love, love, love this quilt. It combines my two favorite fabrics.... Kaffe and batiks and one of my favorite design elements.. flying geese. And your backing is perfect! I would certainly be keeping this for myself, too.

  5. I have a hard time using those large scale prints that are so prevalent these days. This use of it for your backing is perfect! Especially given your personal history. The quilt face is wonderful too. :-)
