Past meets present in this dazzling collection of new quilts from design genius Kaffe Fassett. Drawing inspiration from the textile treasures of the Victoria&Albert Museum, London's world-famous decorative art museum, Kaffe has created 23 gorgeous new patchwork designs. Each is a sympathetic interpretation of an antique source, using updated color schemes and contemporary sewing techniques. All the designs are easily accessible to today's quilters.
The patchworks fall into three categories. First come Utility Quilts, employing large, simple patch shapes cut from charming prints. Traditional pieces follow, encompassing popular heritage quilt formats reborn here in fresh, modern colorways. Finally come the irresistible Showpiece Quilts, incorporating applique to create breathtaking showstoppers.
Each design has full instructions and easy-to-follow colored piecing diagrams. All the basic techniques are covered, from start to finish, including simple applique and quilting methods, and the book is lavishly illustrated throughout with close-ups of each quilt, gorgeous photography on location, and clear color design templates.
