Thank You Kaffe Fassett

This week, I visited Artistic Artifacts, my favorite shop. I headed back to the shelves holding the fabrics designed by what is known as the Kaffe Collective. There are no timid fabrics here. Kaffe’s influence on the world of fiber arts---knitting, needlepoint and quiltmaking---has been vast. His prints are worlds away from what quilters used a generation ago. With his guidance, we have learned to love larger-scale prints, to NOT choose fabrics that "match" and to sew them together in daring combinations. I look at these shelves and feel such joy. Oh the colors, the patterns, the possibilities...Thank you Kaffe Fassett!
