Kaffe Fassett Quilts by the Sea - Early Book Buy Bonus - save $5.00
For this landmark 25th book in his highly successful patchwork and quilt series, Kaffe Fassett
has chosen the southern coast of England as the inspiration for his new collection of quilts. Beachgoers
have long enjoyed the rocky shores near Hastings in East Sussex for their wild beauty and classic
Featuring several miles of coastline, this seaside community has its roots in the fishing industry and was the
site of the Norman Conquest's Battle of Hastings in 1066. Once a popular Victorian resort area, this gem of the southern coast is now
experiencing a travel renaissance thanks to a thriving arts movement.
The gallery section of the book showcases
the 21 new designs, all brilliantly
photographed on location by Debbie
Patterson. The deep jewel tones of Kaffe's Maroon Frames are enhanced by the geometric lines of similarly toned beach
huts. Kaffe's Vintage Stars has an old-world quality featuring earthy tones that are brilliantly set against the backdrop of a
brick garden wall. The stunning Colour Garden quilt, featured on the cover, feels perfectly at home draped over an old fishing boat overlooking the sea, while
his confectionary Fruit Sorbet cushion showcases taffy-inspired pastels sure to inspire
a cozy afternoon by the beach.
With both Kaffe's classic fabrics and his forward-thinking new designs to choose from, quilters
will be thrilled with all Quilts by the Sea offers.
In addition to the quilt designs, Quilts by the Sea includes detailed step-by-step instructions, accompanied by a flat shot of each quilt with the relevant block or quilt assemblydiagram, while a how-to section offers more detailed guidance.
