Satchels Finished


"Satchels" is now finished.

Every basket or "satchel" is made from Kaffe Fasset fabrics.

This quilt is a combination of many different patterns. The main inspiration came from a quilt I saw on Tonye Belinda Phillips web site. Unfortunately she doesn't have a pattern for her quilt. Some of the basket shapes came from Tonye's students. The other basket shapes were found in the book "Farmhouse Quilters Companion" by Barbara Brandeburg.

The border inspiration came from a another basket type quilt I saw in Freddy Moran's book "Collaborative Quilting"

One of the things I wanted to include to make this quilt unique was to add Texture Magic intermittently on some of the circles and baskets.

I used decorative threads to stitch the Texture Magic in place.
For most of the circles and baskets I used King Tut by Superior Threads. One of the reasons I love King Tut is because it's a cotton, 40 weight thread, so it's a little heavier and shows up well. The sections are variegated in 4 colors that change every inch.

Up close the colors in this basket were so beautiful. Love those Kaffes.


I used different stitching patterns on each basket. For this one I did a cross hatch.


Stippling

1/4th inch grids

Each Satchel's block measured 6" finished.


The finished quilt measured 58 1/2" X 72"

It's now off to the quilter, and I'm so excited to see how it will turn out once she puts her imagination to the design.

Just gorgeous, I love it. It looks like those wonderful Japanese quilts we see. The border is just wonderful too. Now I can't wait to see it quilted.

Watching you collect all that kaffe material just made my fingers itch to get some. I started collecting and now I am hooked. Love your quilt and the border is incredible. It was great to see you in ST George.
