The journey begins . . .

In the past couple of days I received my Roseville Album pattern and background fabric as well as various Kaffe fabrics I ordered for the blocks.  To say I am excited about this project is an understatement!!  I immediately started pressing my fabrics and cutting background squares for the blocks.

 I decided to start my Roseville jouney with this block: 

I am using Kim's Roseville Album quilt as a guide in selecting my fabrics.  My quilt will not be identical to hers but close.  So far, I have the left and right basket handles finished on the above block and today will start on the basket weave pieces, flower stems and hopefully some flowers. 

As I said in past posts, these fabrics and this pattern are really going outside the box for me and I am loving it so far!  In the past months I have been using a lot of Civil War reproduction fabrics in my projects as well as vintage-looking pastels in other projects.  So, the wonderful, bright, bold designs of Kaffe Fassett's fabrics is a welcomed change and just might be the beginning of a entire new direction for me and my quilts.


  1. Good luck with surgery and the Roseville Album
