A Beautiful Kaffe Quilt

This is the first quilt I've done for Judy and what an honor. She loves this quilt and I was very pleased she trusted me with it. Isn't it gorgeous???

Unfortunately, my stupid lighting and camera really washes out the colors. However, Judy showed me some new lighting she'd just put in her studio and I'm going to give that a try. The colors in this quilt are truly stunning...I'm so sad about the lack of clarity in the pic.

But...here are some closeups.  They turned out a bit better. In the two below, you can see more of the detail in the 16-patch and the surrounding triangles. I looked through many books for the 16-patch, trying to come up with something more unique than just continuous curve.  The line-work in the triangles is all Angela Walters--I love her designs.

This one shows the detail in the sashing/border squares.  Its such a fun design and I love the spiral effect.

Finally, here's a pic of the center. The quilting doesn't show up as much as I'd hoped, but you can see some detail in the middle of you click on the pic to make it bigger.

Best news was that I delivered this to Judy yesterday and she loved it! That's always the biggest compliment.
