I had not had the opportunity to aquint myself properly with Mr Fasset, but that is what I love about a swap: there is a challenge. What I liked even more was that Karen helped me out by sending me a ton of scraps, quilters are the best! It turned out I did have an FQ of Kaffe lying in my stash, must have been from the beginning when I was clueless about names.
One of my partner Mosaic images was of (I think) Kaffee Fassets jewelled box pattern. I took it as inspiration and set of relatively improv, patching and matching as I went along. I do find Mr Fasset on the bold side, so I 'toned it down' a bit by adding some solids into the mix. The result was well received and I was also very happy with the outcome.
I added a hidden zip after the classic tutorial of Svetlana. And picked up some Kaffee Fasset for the back from my local LQS. All in all a very successful swap. The next sign up round opens next monday, so if you want to participate: the link is at the beginning of this post.
