Kaffe and the Fruit Ladies

My good friend, Ruth Ann, was the hostess for our Christmas bee today.  The star of the day was her show-and-tell quilt.  R.A. loves Kaffe Fasset fabric (as do I) and she does amazing things with it.  LOVE IT!  Below is another shot of it. 

We played "Dirty Santa" - the most fun!  Each of us brought a wrapped yard of fabric.  Is it just me or did my letters just turn green?  
One of the pieces of fabric was wrapped in this doggie paper.  It's two sided - dogs on one side and bones on the other.  Too cute!

Below is the fabric I came home with, much to my delight.  It's the funniest fabric I've seen in a long time.  Look closely at the "fruit ladies" and you'll see their fruity behinds.  The fabric has rows of these women, perfect for a border.  I have some fruit fabrics in my stash - this will be great with it.

By the way, in case you want your own fruit ladies, the selvage reads, "Mary Stewart for Elizabeth Studios."  

YIKES!  I just found out I'm to set up my quilts at the gallery either tomorrow or the next day!  Thought I had several days!  Better get busy....

Kaffe is giving a lecture in London on Thursday but I am unable to go as out already. His work and designs are just so fabulous.

The Kaffe quilt is gorgeous!

And the fabric, what a hoot. I have never heard of that fabric company before.
