And I quote…

“Playing with stripes is a lot of fun if you don’t get too fiddly with matching them up,” Kaffe notes.

    If my stripes ever matched, it would be a miracle;)
    I love the whonky look anyways.

    Playing with stripes is also fun if you’re Kaffe and you have someone else sew all of your stuff for you and execute your vision!!!

    I have some really fun stripes that I am eventually make a quilt that should look the same.

  4. I have been thinking about making a pillow just like that with stripes. You are a mind reader!

    well, i don’t know if you’d say you were “fiddly” or not, but your stripes look great! :)

    Your stripes look amazing! I think I would be matching as well – they just look really great.

    Ha! When I was proof reading for Designer Quilts Magazine, I edited instructions for a Kaffe project that had a comment like that in it. Instead of stripes, it had to do with handling bias edges, or putting bias on the outside of a block. Only he would have enough confidence to make such a comment about issues that drive the rest of us quilters bonkers.

    Your blocks look fine. If anyone has the nerve to inspect your finished quilt that closely, they deserve the headache all those stripes will give them!

    I love your blocks and I’m loving watching this one come together, I’ve always wanted to do this one, but never had the courage. xo

    Since those look perfect I suspect you did not understand the quote.

    Looks to me like a bit of fiddling is definitely going on in your house!

    Your quilt (and all your projects) are totally inspiring! Absolutely beautiful! Even though I don’t need to start another project right now your pictures have me itching to go hunting for some striped shirts.

    ah, so true. He’s a wise one, that Kaffe

  16. LOL — Kaffe doesn’t actually sew :)

    Your blocks look great!

    Well my dear, you may be quoting Kaffe but it doesn’t look to my eyes as if you are actually practicing what you’re quoting! Those strips look amazing! Eeeeek … I can feel a trip to St. Vincent De Paul coming on – and how virtuously thrifty would I feel!

    Sometimes I think Kaffe does these things just to give us all the pip. Missing something Mrs S?

    Wow! So trippy, but it really works.
