After a break......

....I can show you my new work!

Kaffe Fasset HST top
This has been my first work with Kaffe Fasset  (Paperweight Collection) so I have decided for a simple block to bring out the colors and the design of the fabrics.
I made 224 HST (12.5 cm finished) using also three gray shades: a good choise to balance so many colors.
But when I finished all the blocks I had to lay out them to see the result and decide for the colors position. OK.....where?
Not on my design wall: too small!
Of course on the floor! (Our friend floor: I think that the floor is a great instrument for the quilters!)
With the help of my hub (!?!) I created my personal "design floor" : a grid with string and adhesive tape. A perfect grid with the quilt measures (about 2,00 cm x 2,20 CM)

Little by little, I composed my top, checking the colors and the measures.
I have to say...this grill has been a big trick!

I made a little squares border and now I'm working on the back of the top ......and I can say that it'll be a surprise.

  1. Wow, that is beautiful! You have done a huge work with that. My patience is never going to be enough to do that. Patchwork is so not my things to do! =)
