Dear Kaffe in Amsterdam at Thanks Giving

Last week between courses, the sewing machine and computer had a fight. Is this is what women can? After an hour of mailing, it entered my brain what I was combining; Composing the top of Dear Kaffe and answering e-mails with Brandon.

All Kaffe Fassett Group designed fabric from the shop went with us to Amsterdam to the ABC Treehouse, shop for a day between Spui and Kalverstraat. In the afternoon we had a watercolor workshop using only Kaffe Fabrics with stunning results.
Finally Kaffe and Brandon arrived and the shop was overloaded with fans.

At the end of the evening there was time to show the Dear Kaffe quilt to Kaffe and have a little chat.

Kaffe admired how the pieces are cut and loves
the idea of working with little pieces of fabric. He pointed out some special fussy cut blocks. Also the brightness of the background to make the quilt look  crisp has his approval. The Dear Kafffe quilt will in Nantes, april 2013 and yes Kaffe will be there too.

Then Brandon took the Dear Kaffe quilt and he made a little joke with it. As you can see the top is not completely finished. Some blocks are still missing. We hope to finish the top soon. 
We specially thank Lynn Kaplanian from The American Book Center for having us in The ABC Treehouse. Today, Sunday 25 November, Lynn is interviewed on RTL7 just before noon. The RTL7 film team took the shots while Quiltshop 100 rozen had the shop in The ABC Treehouse.
