Kaffe Fassett's Heritage Quilts. 20 designs from Rowan for patchwork and quilting.

Kaffe's inspiration 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 Guild 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 introduction - Kaffe breathes fresh life into their eye-catching patterns and geometry, from hexagons to log cabins, complex medallions to simple stripes. Five designers from Kaffe's team each chose 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.

Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in Italy. 20 designs from Rowan for patchwork and quilting.

Che bella! Kaffe's inspiration for the 20 new quilts in this book was drawn from the exquisite, richly colored villages of Cinque Terre on the Italian Riviera. The region, with its terracotta walls and handsome black and white churches set off by jewel-like glimpses of the Mediterranean, is beautifully reflected in the colors and patterns created by Kaffe and his team of designers.

The glorious array of designs featured in Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in Italy are all made using classic as well as new fabrics from the Kaffe Fassett Fabric Collection - subtle or bold, simple or complex, all of the designs come together with emblematic Kaffe Fassett flair. Choose from the delicious ice-cream colors and traditional piecing of Kaffe's own Lacy Log Cabin, the bold and contrasting colors and forms of Scaffold, the almost dizzying complexity of Chiaroscuro with its four-in-one style piecing, and many more eye-catching designs.

In addition to the gallery of quilts, the book provides detailed information on how to make each featured quilt, along with general practical patchwork and quilting information and a visual summary of Kaffe's latest fabrics.
