Question - Kaffe Fassett

I have a question!!!! Me, me, me, over here!!!!

Do you have Kaffe Fassett fabric in your stash? I'm thinking ahead to my month and remembered that I picked up some fat quarters that our quilt shop brought in special at Christmas...it's not a designer they carry.

Do you visit the blog Material Obsession? http://www.materialobsession.typepad.com/

It seems a lot of their favourites fall in the Kaffe Fassett fabrics or something similar and I love it. It's wild and kooky.

Anyhoo...just asking in case I have to find a Canadian source and get some in before...what am I September?



  1. Definitely Kaffe in my collection.
    My block inspiration was a quilt from one of the Material Obsession books. Love Cathy's work and the blog is so full of inspiration.

  2. I've got a little Kaffe too. I'm hoarding him for a big project one day.

  3. I am still kind of new at all this fabric stuff. I have never heard of Kaffe Fassett fabrics but I would love to see some.

  4. The best Canadian source I know for for Kaffe Fassett is Hyggeligt Fabrics in London, ON at http://www.hyggeligt.ca/. Hamel's Fabrics in BC also carries them at http://www.hamelsfabrics.com/. However, it's a lot cheaper to buy from the US. My favourite source is Quilt Home at http://quilthome.com/ -- they have the biggest selection. Another good one is Canton Village Quilt Works at http://www.cvquiltworks.com/shop/.

  5. just stumbled onto your blog -- you aren't familiar with kaffe fasset?! if you're looking for a fabric source in the u.s., try http://www.gloriouscolor.com/ this shop is owned by the woman who convinced kaffe to take up quilting. (he's also done knitting, needlepoint, painting, etc.) also, http://www.hancocks-paducah.com/ is a wonderful quilting fabrics resource in the u.s. have fun!

  6. I don't really have Kaffe Viv, I've only made one quilt with it but I'm happy to get some and don't even think of buying it here then posting it back..!!!!

  7. I'm with Lizzie-we can buy local you know! I've only just started poring over his quilting book-I'm very familiar with his knitting books and usually need a drool pad handy when I open any of his books. go with what you want!

  8. I don't have a lot of Kaffe...but always looking for an excuse to buy some...

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  9. Oh wow I love the selection at Hyggeligt and I've picked out some fabric. I have to wait till the end of the month to order it but I'm going for it. I picked out some crazy reds and purple and one gorgeous yellow. I have a block in mind, I'll either plan it out or find an online version before september. Fortunately this shop is here in Canada so it's already made most of the journey up here LOL. Only a little bit further to make it to the Yukon.

    When I get it figured out, if you want a reason to go shopping for Kaffe Fassett locally I'm not going to stop you. Have fun and include some in my block! LOL.

    thank you Jen and pbach1 for the sources!!!

  10. I love Kaffe Fassett and know him in knitting mostly.
    I don't own any of his fabric but can maybe manage to find some in France if need be...
    Love the colors and the site/blog you shared Vivian.

  11. Hello there and thank you for the kind references - I am Chantal of Hyggeligt in London, Ontario. The new season collection will start coming in soon - the fat quarter flew out the door!
    fyi - not sure where all of you are but Kaffe will be in London this October - we are thrilled!! More info is on my site www.hyggeligt.ca I hope you don't mind me popping in.
    Have great day/evening!
