My Quip – A Hint of A New Quilt – Joseph’s Coat

Good Day,

How do you divide 44 colors by 9? Simple count to 44, add 1 from the next 44, totals 45, divided by 9 equals 5! This is our preliminary construction of the blocks for our new quilt, Joseph’s Coat.

We are working on an adaptation of Kaffe Fassett’s design, X-Factor from his 2010 book Quilts en Provence. The fabrics we have chosen are from the Robert Kaufman Fabrics collection of Kona Cotton Solids. The Dusty Colorstory assembly is 44 picks of the available 216 fabrics.

Our completed blocks, each of nine colors, will be the base of our adaptation of Joseph’s Coat. Each of the 42 blocks will be individual and a unique assembly of varying colors.

If you are interested, and would like some more information of available quilts, regarding costs, shipping, and insurance, please check our Quilts SB Etsy shop.

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual Grid presentation at the bottom of the Quilts SB page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt's details. If the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow or in red, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.

I'm not sure if I have missed any, but enjoy,

Jim and Andy
