Client Quilt - Kaffe Strips

Some quilts are hard to send back with their makers!  I *love* Kaffe Fabric designs, and this is just glorious.  Simple and elegant and fantastic.  I just want to adore this one for miles and miles :)

Zooming out ...

The stripes separating the Kaffe fabrics are stunning gradated solid purples, with a small section of matching Kaffe stripes.  Drool-worthy!!

So much beautiful colour, vibrant and rich.  The oranges just glow. 

The Kaffe floral panels received a digital design by Donna Kleinke "Zuri", with beautiful plumes and a row of pearls ...

The gradated purple received random rows or pearls and straight lines, and the stripe was left unquilted.

The back is a gorgeous shade of tomato red/orange that complemented the florals beautifully, with one row of more florals and horizontal stripes.  

The thread for the top of this beauty - a YLI variegated "Maui Sunset", and the bobbin thread was Essential Pro "Rust".  Both are 100% cotton threads, they created a lot of lint!!  

The batting is Hobbs Tuscany 80% cotton / 20% washable wool.  That little bit of wool gives more definition to the stitching.

Stitch count: 94,578.  My 60th client quilt.
