Kaffe Fassett’s Quilts in the Sun: Twenty Designs from Rowan for Patchwork and Quilting

Kaffe Fassett presents a collection of 20 original quilt designs to suit all skill levels. Featuring striking new designs by the featured designer Amy Butler, this brilliant title captures the vibrancy and rhythm of its various exotic quilt patterns.

Immerse yourself in the divine photographic echoes of Portugal, with many quilts displayed against the backgrounds of glazed tiles and the unique architecture of Santa Catorina Castle and buildings in Porto and Lisbon. Kaffe has taken many of these captivating designs from motifs and ideas he has discovered while travelling, translating many of these images onto unique fabric designs. His combinations of floral patterns and the lush floral prints combine to produce quilts that are wonderfully exotic and whilst comfortingly country garden.

Kaffe’s own designs for this book provide a valuable teaching exercise in design for quilters keen to extend their understanding of the use of colour. A flat shot, detailed written instructions and coloured-piecing diagrams accompany each quilt, and a tips and techniques section covers all the piecing methods used.
