Heritage Quilts by Kaffe Fassett’s
Kaffe’s Inspirations for the 20 new quilts in this book was drawn from some particularly glorious quilts of the past. Kaffe Selected 15 quilts from the quilter’s quild collection that caught his eye and applied his design sensibilities, using his current range of fabrics to give them a wholly new dimension. In doing so, he has brought together his passion for textile making with, as he says “The ingenious discoveries of past quilt-makers.”
In his contemporary take on these amazing quilts-the 15 historic quilts chosen span three centuries of quilt making and are featured in his introductions-Kaffe breathes fresh line into their eye-catching patterns and geometry, from hexagons to log cabins, complex medallions to simple stripes. Five designers from Kaffe’s team each choose a quilt to inspire their own version, creating yet further design opportunities.
In addition to the gallery of quilts old and new, the book includes detailed information on how to make each featured quilt, along with general practical patchwork and quilting information and a visual summary of his latest fabrics.
