About the Author

"Color and pattern are my obsessions, and playing with them in different mediums leads to a stimulating life." Kaffe Fassett enjoys worldwide artistic recognition for his visionary, organic and instinctive uses of color and pattern inspired by centuries of decorative arts and the compelling world of nature. He is the first textile designer to be given a one-person show at both the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. He also is a leading fabric designer for Rowan Patchwork and Quilting and the leading knitwear designer for Rowan Yarns. Born and raised in San Francisco, Kaffe moved to London to Paint at the age of 19. He became a permanent London resident in 1964 and from London, travels, exhibits and teaches around the world.

This one is the nicest of Kaffe's quilting books yet so far. There are 20 quilt designs for all levels of technical ability and they all use Kaffe's fabrics in spectacular ways.

The photography and printing quality of the book allow this to be one of the most functionally usable quilt books I own. I am again inspired to take up my rotary cutting wheel and start piecing.

The graphics and instructions are clear and well diagrammed. I wouldn't have changed a thing.

Kaffe Fassett and his colour sense is fantastic. Yet again another wonderful vibrant selection of quilts using his distinctive designs and colour ways. I have been fortunate enough to attend a lecture by this artist and his books only give a hint of his ideas and inspirations. Quilts in the Sun ,are as always, photographed so well and leave you wanting to see more. Follow his advise and use colour as does nature, it is all around us and what a better canvas than a quilt. Enjoy.

This is still another book of gorgeous quilts from Kaffe Fassett and Rowen. Of course, they show them in Fassett's own fabrics, but you can use the designs and templates and make your own entirely original creations.

Format: Paperback
Few designers have the eye for the daring color and riotous pattern combinations found in Fassett's work, and the sun-splashed glory in these photographs makes for a delicious visual feast. For the more conservative...and even beginning quilter, the patterns are doable in other fabric choices. This is a book to set the creative juices bubbling.

Even if you don't quilt, you will enjoy just looking at this colorful book. It inspires by the juxtaposition of colors, sizes of prints and overall design. I own all his books, and I enjoy the inspiration I receive every time I open his books.

Kaffe Fassett's choice of colors are so beautiful. I want to make all the quilts with his designs. My favorite color choice would be
either red or blue. I bought some fabric with very large fish which will be the backing of one of my quilts. I can hardly wait to finish.
