With this lavish book Kaffe Fassett delves into an exciting new textile arena, injecting elegance and richness into the contemporary quilting world. Quilting is increasingly acquiring an even greater following and with this innovative collection Kaffe will attract many new converts. The book is divided into five chapters by colour themes: gentle Soft Pastels, bold and brassy Circus hues, fresh Leafy Gardens, alluring Antique Stone Colours and rich Renaissance tones. Each chapter contains a range of patchworked quilts, from simple designs suitable as a weekend project for beginners to more complex quilts which provide a challenge for more experienced patchworkers. All the projects have clear and complete instructions, with patterns and templates were necessary, to ensure that every reader can recreate Kaffe's glorious designs with their stunning, sometimes unexpected, use of colour and intriguing patterns. In addition to the main quilts, there are ideas for smaller, accompanying items, such as curtains, cushions and even tablecloths, so that you can develop the patchwork theme within an interior - as well as enjoying smaller projects which can be treated in no time at all.
