In Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in Italy, Kaffe and his team--Liza Prior-Lucy, Brandon Mably, Corienne Kramer, Sally Davis, Judy Baldwin, and Julie Stockler--have put together a great range of quilt designs in striking color combinations including both classic and contemporary blocks. From the zinging triangles and squares of Tussy Mussy in strong pinks and eye-catching reds to the purple and black shadow boxes of Red Squares to the traditional, softly colored blue-and-white Cloudy Skies, there is a quilt for every taste and level of skill.
Photographed on location by Debbie Patterson and art directed and styled by Kaffe himself, the quilts glow out against the backddrop of the cluster of hill towns (known as Cinqueterre) with lusciously painted houses on the shores of the Italian Mediterranean.
Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in Italy, a show-stopping feast of color, gives quilters full practical information on cutting out and stitching each quilt, along with its templates and provides a practical know-how section on basic patchworking systems.
The fabrics in his current collection are designed by himself, Philip Jacobs, and Brandon Mably. As always, Kaffe and Philip opt for eye-catching, coloring designs in bright fabrics. Combined with Brandon's simpler, graphic patterns these offer the ideal range for quilt makers.
