A tribute to Rayna and Kaffe!

Jubilation!  Kaffe Fassett's knitting patterns, interiors, quilts, books and for the last many years his absolutely gorgeous fabrics as well as using Rayna Gillman's technique after admiring her style for many years, and then doing workshops with her and building a warm relationship with her were an obvious combination when it came to making something in this challenge. 
Other than the black and white fabrics and the solid yellow hand dyed fabric, all fabrics in this piece are designed by Kaffe.  The technique used in this block is Rayna's 'therapy sewing' - free form strip quilt piecing.
Had huge fun making this - quite addictive and difficult to stop.  Certainly a technique I love using fabrics I adore.
