In Bold Blooms for the first time ever, he shares a behind-the-scenes look at his fascinating creative process, shedding light on how he creates the vibrants fabrics, quilts, needlepoints, ribbons, floral displays, and paintings for which he is celebrated. He follows with a passionate ode to flowers in the form of eighteen quilts and seven needlepoints designed for beginning to advanced stickers and divided into seven color moods, ranging from neutrals and soft pastels to rich, dark tones.
“While the projects included here features the crafts of patchwork and needlepoints,” Fasset explains in the introductions, “the ideas i presents translate to any discipline that uses pattern and color, including mosaics, embroidery, beading, knitting, rag rugs, furniture and wall decorations, and the display of live flowers.
By dedicating this book to bold blooms, I hope to be sending you off on a passion-filled creative journey.”
