Di's Fruits of the Forest Kaffe Fassett Quilt

'Fruits of the Forest' Quilt, made by Di,
quilted by Frances Meredith

This is another homage to Kaffe Fassett by Di.  This quilt is called Fruits of the Forest and features in his book 'Quilts in Burano'.  As a longarm quilter my main aim is to look at the main focus of the quilt and use my longarm quilting machine to enhance it.  With pretty much every Kaffe Fassett quilt which comes through my door (and I have had MANY), the focus is always the alluring fabrics, with the quilting only having a small bit part in the show.

The choice of digital patterns is wide open, so on this occasion I looked at the fabrics and took a lead from one of the swirly patterns and accompanied it with this swirly quilt pattern, 'Lalla Palooza' design by Denise Schillinger.  I managed to catch Lalla Palooza in all its glory on my APQS longarm machine, just as the sun comes around in the afternoon.
