Kaffe Fassett’s Quilts in Sweden: 20 Designs from Rowan for Patchwork and Quilting, 144p, colour
Piece by piece, world-renowned textile artist Kaffe Fassett and his team of designers create another stunning collection of quilts. These exciting new quilts, 20 in all, display the gorgeous and dynamic colorways, keen fabric choices, and brilliant design that Kaffe Fassett is known for. Once again using fabrics that Kaffe has designed for Rowan, Kaffe and his designers tell sensational color stories that bring the simple layouts to life.
In addition to the fabulous designs, readers are treated to an insider’s view on how Kaffe Fassett works closely with Pauline Smith to realize each inspiration. Kaffe often designs a fabric knowing how he would like to use it and how it will look when it is cut up. Pictures, accompanied by text and quotes from Kaffe, illustrate the various stages of quilt construction, showing the fabric choices and the changes made during the design process. A great opportunity to learn how the master does it!
Photographed at the Skansen Museum in Stockholm, Sweden, Kaffe’s vibrant collection provides a pleasing contrast to its spare yet homey surroundings. The colorful wooden farmsteads and townhouses with exquisitely stenciled interiors, make a beautiful tableau for the quilts. Debbie Patterson once again captures the mood perfectly, with each quilt in its setting.
Each quilt is accompanied by a full reference shot with detailed written instructions, colored piecing diagrams, templates, and a tips and techniques section, covering all the piecing methods used.
