Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid

Vivid fabrics by Kaffe Fassett liven up a traditional quilt pattern.

Vivid fabrics by Kaffe Fassett liven up a traditional quilt pattern.

This week, I’m traveling to 12 quilt shops participating in the annual East Tennessee Shop Hop.  And although I grew up watching my mom make quilts, these new fabrics in somewhat traditional patterns are nothing like what she put together.  (But she’d love them, no doubt.)

The vivid colors and contemporary patterns are the inspiration of Kaffe Fassett, a London designer who has made his mark in the design world in various textile fields:  needlepoint, knitting, and now quilting.

Were the 60s ever this colorful?

This cute piece isn’t a Fassett design but one I couldn’t resist sharing.  It’s a vivid summer somewhere!
