Description

Although Fassett does not stitch the quilts, he collaborates with Liza Prior Lucy very satisfactorily. The high level of intensity and energy that he maintained all day despite having passed the age of 80 was incredible. I think this is an absolutely excellent quilting book for anyone who needs a reminder of what one can do with color--I highly recommend it to anyone who is tired of the same old traditional color schemes and the not-so-inventive, often washed-out contemporary ones.

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.Dust Jackets are not guaranteed and when still present, they will have various degrees of tear and damage. During his keynote address Kaffe shared his life story and his many sources of inspiration in a talk appropriately entitled “Colour Lecture”. But making a Kaffe Fassett quilt in a class taught by the master of “Glorious Color” brings you up close and personal to his creative genius. I'm not a quilter or a sewer (except when I have to sew on a button or something) and I've never made any of these.

If you are into, art quilts or just letting the fabrics and colors do the work, you will love this book. 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. We finished with a show and tell as Kaffe and Brandon went around to each quilt and evaluated the final results. His color choices and ability to pull colors from scenes, buildings, collections, or just nature, are what make this book stand out from the hundreds of other quilt books.

He highlighted what he loved about each quilt using words that were also emphasized with large, expressive whole-body gestures. All quilts have step-by-step instructions, and actual size templates are included for photocopying at the back of the book. As he pointed out specific details about the color combinations that he admired in each example, phrases like “love the chanciness”, “otherworldly palette”, “sings out” and “absorbs heat” were combined with positive encouragements like “gorgeous”, “stunning”, “outrageous”, “lush” and “delicate”. Well worth the money, even if you only look at the book and don't actually make any of the designs - I was inspired!

Yet despite this popularity he accepted the adulation with grace and humility, patiently signing quilt books and posing for cell phone photos with the attendees. Fasset shows what you can do by NOT contrasting fabrics, but instead by playing with the possibilities of putting three, four, or seventeen different reds, greens or pinks next to each other.The point of this book is not complicated designs, it's what you can do with the simplest block and trinagle patterns.
