Kaffe Fusion Blanket Completed!…

 
Sewing Daisies: Kaffe Fusion Blanket

 

 

My Kaffe 'Fusion Blanket' is finished!

Remember?

 

It's the 'crowing' project I began just after Christmas.

 

No?

  Sewing Daisies: Kaffe Fusion Blanket

 

Okay,


it's my very own creation

using Kaffe Fassett charms

and a mix of crochet & sewing


"Crowing"

 

Sewing Daisies: Kaffe Fusion Blanket

 

This lovely little blanket

 

is made up of 48 charms sewn together

back to back

with blanket stitch run around the edges at 1cm intervals.

Simple.

 

Sewing Daisies: Kaffe Fusion Blanket

 

 The crochet


proved to be a little trickier though,

On account of me making it up as I went along.


Not the best idea ever.

 

Sewing Daisies: Kaffe Fusion Blanket

But


I persevered and now have a

spiffy lap blanket

that's a perfect fit for a cot or pram.

 

 That's right,

I am bringing 'spiffy' back into play!

 

Sewing Daisies: Kaffe Fusion Blanket

 

So there you have it


The Kaffe 'Fusion Blanket'

    Wow! GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!! You may think my use of exclamation points is excessive but think again!!!!!!!!! I think you’re on to something here. Seriously, I may just have to try this (and give you full credit of course!)
    On another note, I don’t know how you manage to pull off the quantity of large pieces that you do. I suspect you have super-powers and/or perhaps require zero sleep. And if not, what’s your secret?

I won a full fat quarter set of the “Sweet Broderie” fabrics from the lovely Rosalie Quinlan last year and was waiting for the right project to use them and I think this is the one.

    Hey there Carol!
    All of the fabric squares were made before all of the crochet was added. I simply sewed two 5″ squares together (wrong sides), flipped the square right side out and topstitched. It’s then ready for the blanket stitch & crochet.

    This is gorgeous. I’m wondering how you treated the back of the fabric squares. How are they finished? It seems to me they would need some sort of backing.
    I’ve made many Kaffe Fassett quilts and I love, love all of his fabric. I always have scraps that I could use in this manner but what to do with the back of the fabric??

    I love your Kaffe sewchet quilt. I have been toying with a similar idea for a while, but using some embroidered/embellished squares as well. Do you think the fabric squares could benefit from the addition of some batting? Although when I look more closely, your fabrics look heavier than what I was planning on using. Looking forward to having a go. Will be happy if mine’s even 1/2 as gorgeous as yours!

    Thank you for your great question Pins & Needles;
    Adding batting would be great for a lovely warm winter blanket. It might be a little fiddly to do with charm squares (5×5″) but definately worth it with larger ones.
    I can’t wait to see your blanket!

    p.s I used 100% cotton fabric & yarn for blanket which might account for the weighty look.

    Preciosa combinación de Patchycrochet como le dice mi amiga Ana Esther. Es una idea que me viene rondando la cabeza hace tiempo, de hecho tengo una colcha casi terminada en la que estoy combinando cuadros de log cabin con unos que me ha hecho mi madre en crochet.
    Viva la fusión.

    Would that be right sides together and turned after sewing or wrong sides together and turned after sewing?

    hey there Fay,
    The fabric squares should be right sides together before sewing. Sew around the edge leaving a little gap. Turn squares inside out so the right sides are exposed. Sew the little gap together and top stitch.

    What a great idea! I have tons of fat quarters that would look great with a crocheted border around them in a quilt. Very clever. Did you have any problem with fraying of the fabric? I would love the instructions for this. Thank you so much!

    VERY clever idea! I have crocheted for years but never dreamed of combining the work with fabric? I wonder if this would work with flannel? My granddaughter would be thrilled! PLEASE share instructions to my e-mail inbox. Thanks in advance.

    hey Janie,
    Thank you for stopping by Sewing Daisies. Crocheting with flannel should be a cinch. I don’t even think you will need to do the blanket stitch before hand. I small sharp crochet hook should be able to work through flannel easily.
    p.s I have sent you the link for the online tutorial. (I don’t have a PDF version).

    Would you mind sending the same to me?? Looked at the crochet chart and almost passed out! I’m a knitter at heart, but can usually tackle crochet, if it is in the written form. Lol!! This pattern is AMAZING, BTW….thanks so soooo much for sharing. I can’t believe I have a way to combine fabric and yarn now!! Yay rah!:)

    I would love to make one of these, but have never made a quilt or blanket before. I’m fairly new to sewing, and am even newer to crotcheting, but I am in love with this quilt and want one of my own!! Do you have a tutorial somewhere for this quilt? I think it’s one of the most beautiful quilts I’ve ever seen!

    This looks so fun and I would love to use some fleece squares in the blanket design but, I don’t know how to do crochet and I only know basic stitches. I am eager and still want to learn any suggestions? Thank you.

    Hey there Susan,
    Thank you for posting your question. The ‘Fusion Blanket’ is really easy to make as it only uses a few basic crochet stitches – the Single Crochet, Chain & Treble (I use US terms).
    The following link will help you out on those basic stitches (check out the How-To Manual) or alternatively there are loads of YouTube videos that teaches the stitches.
