For the Kaffe Fans

I don't know how many fans of Kaffe I have reading my blog, but I do know at least a lot of you like his fabric. Did you know until 2 months ago I never even knew how to say his name?! I was pronouncing it like Cafe'.  I took these photos in PA just for YOU, because at this point, I'm sure I will never make anything like these. Of course, I should never say never!!








The quilts were from this new book of Kaffe's.
Hey, wait! How did this get in here? LOL I loved the chicken on the top as it reminded me of the  eagles that usually grace a patriotic quilt. The whole thing made me giggle!!

  4. Lori, I'm wth you! I don't "get" the Kaffe thing, but then I just surrendered and bought some of that kind of fabric for the Roseville Album applique project. SO I may get converted. But the other quilts and things I've seen...nah, not my style. Now the chickens....! LOL No, not my style, either! LOL But eagles would TOTALLY do it for me!
    Blessings,

  5. I will probably never make anything of his, either only because I only make things that I will USE in my house. But I do admire his work. I wish I could think that far out of the box.

  7. I don't "Cafe" but have to admire his talent.

    Okay, I give, how DO YOU pronounce his name? I'm at a loss here.

  8. I like both reproduction and Kaffe! Not too long ago, I saw traditional quilt blocks that mixed both kinds of fabrics and they looked good. Maybe I'll try that someday!

  10. Although these are not the fabrics I work in, I love some of the applique I see with them. I do like the fan quilt! These are the vibrant colors my daughter likes to work with.

    :)

  15. While the Kaffe quilts are lovely to look at (this house quilt being my favorite), that chicken quilt!! all I can say (a la Rachel Zoe) is- I die!
    thanks for posting

  16. More wonderful quilts! I love quilts with curves or the illusion of curves.

  17. That chicken quilt is fun - I like the eggy border :0) I also like the house quilt - they look a bit like stone cottages.

  18. There is a lot to admire in modern quilting, and Kaffe is one that is so creative it's hard not to appreciate his designs. It doesn't mean that I want to emulate them, but I love to look!

  19. How hilarious...that chicken is a harlot! the other girls look to be much better behaved around the rooster.

  21. OK, I don't know how to pronounce KF's name either! I always want to say "coffee faucet". I'm not a big fan of his quilts, but I do like some of the fabrics. The one quilt I like is the circles with the rickrack...that's fun!

    But not as fun as that delightful chicken quilt! What a hoot! I love both egg borders.

  22. The chicken on top is perfect. I'm seriously thinking of getting a few for my back yard next spring. I'm hoping I'm not just nuts!

  23. Gotta love all those quilts! His fabrics make any quilt just sing. Thanks for sharing!

  24. I am usually a slow to convert to a new trend in fabrics (it took me years to buy batiks) but then the right quilt comes along...The quilts in the show are lovely, but it is the applique quilts with his fabric that I really love. How do you say his name???

  25. I am glad the chicken quilt got in there. It is the best of the bunch!

  26. Thanks for sharing Kaffe's quilts. The traditional quilts made with his more modern fabric are unique, and strangely appealing.

  27. Beautiful quilts! I don't work in Kaffe fabrics, but I do admire his use of color. Love that book in the post.
    I tend to do more traditional patterns.

  28. Oh the photos were great. But I have to say I love that chicken quilt. It would fit right in at my house. I visit your blog every day to see what you have been up to.

  29. Thank you for the Kaffe eye candy, Lori! :) I am a recent convert to his fabrics.

    The chicken quilt is a hoot!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow I loved the Cafe' quilts!!! I really took a liking the Cabin Quilt, too. Man. That's a great take on a traditionally seen quilt isn't it? Lots here to enjoy. Perfect over coffee. :)

  31. I'm not really a Kaffe fan, but I now own 1 piece of his fabric and I bought his new book!! So, I may be on a slippery slope LOL! Are those his original quilts from the book? I would love to see some of them in person. Are you going to be making one??

  32. I have a stash of Kaffe fabrics...my favorite project was a pieced and quilted duffel bag I made with friends.

    ReplyDelete
  33. No, never say never, I've seen you cross over to the bright side momentarily before. Thanks for the photos, there are some wonderful quilts in that lot.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks for the quilt show! I like Kaffe's fabrics best when used in applique. I'm not sure if I like the muddled look of the pieced quilts? BUT..I'm sure at some point I'll be wanting to use up scraps..and may just piece a quilt?
    I LOVE the chicken quilt! If there was a pattern available I'd want to have it. :)

  35. Yes, Kaffe is not a common name......but to pronounce it correctly remember it rhymes with Safe......your always safe with Kaffe. I'm a huge fan and think his quilts are so colorful, so busy and so terrific..I'd love to see them up close and personal too. I think if you like traditional these are NOT for you :0).
    Thanks for sharing them with us.......Happy Sewing

  36. Oh my goodness -- those houses made from Kaffe are adorable! I have that book and a stack of his fabrics, but not one FQ has gone into a project yet. I'm happily swimming around in my CW repro fabrics right now. One style at a time. I'll focus on his lovelies another day.

  37. I can't say I am a Kaffe fan(I tend to go for the reproduction type fabrics), but I sure do like that Diamond quilt. Beautiful! Thanks for the quilt show!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Okay duh......
    I missed the whole humor thing with the chicken quilt.........look at the chicken's face at the top and the border of eggs.....someone had a great time making this quilt. :0)
    ( not Kaffe )
    Happy Sewing

  39. I said his name like that too until recently when someone who has actually spent time with him told me the correct way! Thanks for sharing the bright and fun quilts (I like the house one best) and of course the silly chicken.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm like you, his fabrics are growing on me. I'm not sure if I like the house or the snowball better.
