A Fun and Scrappy Diversion

I’m so stressed and so unenthusiastic about the quilt I’ve been working on that I sat down with some Kaffe sunburst fabric and a box of Kaffe scraps tonight and started sewing. Phew. I feel better already. And here’s what happened…

The photo doesn’t show the colors as bright as they are in person. That’s one of the challenges of taking photos late at night. But I just LOVE how this is turning out!

I’ve wanted to use these fantastic little sunburst squares for a quilt like this for some time. I don’t know why I’ve waited so long. I thought I’d make a couple of blocks tonight, but whipped up these nine in no time.

I recently purchased a yard of several color ways of the sunburst fabrics to add to what I already had in my stash. It’s no longer in production and it’s pretty fantastic! I’ll have enough for a few other future projects.

Each sunburst is almost 4 inches square. They’re not precise, so if you demand precision you might want to stay away from this fabric!

I have a love for scrappy quilts and with these amazing KFC fabrics, they are even more fun. I love it when my sewing room has piles of scraps everywhere!

Oh, and I’m making even SMALLER scraps that will be perfect for more crumb piecing!

I’m really going to have to force myself to finish that drab batik quilt I have on my design wall…

  1. What great fabric! I love them all except the pink peony with the lime and lilac starburst. It’s pretty, but the stripes don’t contrast as well as the other colours… But then, maybe the eye needs somewhere to rest amidst all that brilliant colour.


  2. I have that sunburst fabric too and have been waiting for inspiration. I recently finished a quilt called “ jelly on point” with KFC fabrics that is similar. To what you’re doing here. This is fun!


  3. This pattern & fabric is so unique. I really love bright and floral fabric, that’s the first place I head when I walk into a fabric store. Excited to see your finished quilt. Stay safe and healthy.
