I have always been pleased that my daughter, Anna, takes an interest in my patchwork. Quite a while ago (sigh) she asked if I would be interested in making the pastel version of Kaffe Fassett's "Jane's Diamonds", from his book Quilts In The Sun, of course I was happy to oblige! She loved the colours and prints in the original so we hunted to try to find these prints, many of which are now rare and not available. (Now comes the fun bit of substituting fabrics - I love fabric auditioning and finding lovely prints that will work just as well or even better!).

Finally her 18th birthday arrived and I was able to present my labour of love to dear Anna. Although I had closeted myself away during much of the piecing process, Anna did suspect I was sewing for her, and she had caught some glimpses along the way. I must confess, it was presented without the binding (shameful!) and without a label, which is why, way way back in this long post I had titled it "Finished... well almost finished!". I sign off with 2 final photos of anna opening her lovely new Kaffe quilt. xox to Anna!!
