Sunday Snapshot: Kaffe Fassett Shot Cottons

Sunday Snapshot: Kaffe Fassett Shot Cottons | Red-Handled Scissors

I’ve been lusting after these Kaffe Fasset shot cottons since the very first time I saw them in my local fabric store. (Seriously, it was like being a love-struck teenager—I even dreamed about them.) And, yesterday, I finally brought them home!

Alas, this snapshot doesn’t even come close to doing the rich, multihued beauty of each and every fabric color justice. You should probably just stop in at the very next quilt shop you find and take a look for yourself—I promise, you won’t be sorry!

Now, let’s have a bit of stash enabling: Tell me, what fabric lines are you currently coveting?

    I have been hoping some etsy fabric sellers would donate 1 yrd of pretty fabric for chemo caps. I have even offered to pay for the shipping . I even bought a yard frome one persone. I have yet to recieve a single donation . How sad. I am also providing my time and fabrics for this cause . for the local hospital chemo departments. they are free to chemo patients .

    • Your heart is clearly in the right place, but maybe you’d have better luck if you approached larger fabric companies (or even your local fabric store) for donations? Since Etsy is largely a marketplace for handmade goods, most of the sellers are likely either small businesses, artisans who are printing fabric by hand, or small-batch designers. And, unfortunately, even for people who’d ideally like to help, it simply might not be financially viable for them to do so. (I don’t know if you’ve ever tried to hand-print a yard of fabric, but, good heavens, it takes forever!) If I were you, I think I’d try approaching my favorite fabric producers to see if they can donate, since they’re more likely to be able to spare a few yards without breaking their budgets.

      Best of luck with your project!

    I JUST gave in and bought a bunch of half yards of Kaffe shot cottons two nights ago! I didn’t buy the whole spectrum, but if my wallet allowed I absolutely would have! I’m jealous of your gorgeous bundle!! What do you plan to make? I’m going to use mine to test Leanne at shecanquilt ‘s new Canvas pattern–I’m going to make placemats! I also plan to use some of mine in a new paper piecing pattern I designed. What couldn’t you make out of shot cottons, really!?
