This was a Christmas gift from my son who understands and appreciates the art of quilting and supports my passion for it. From the title I expected to see Kaffe's interpretation of the kaleidoscope block in a "kaleidoscope" of applications. Instead, he interprets better-known traditional blocks, such as Ohio Star and Little Red Schoolhouse, in his beautiful fabrics. The combination brings these much-loved blocks into a new and stunning dimension. As always, the illustrations are lush and lavish -- this time photographed on Malta -- and the instructions are clear and accurate. A lovely book from cover to cover.

Like an impressionist painting, you need to stand back and view Kaffe Fassett's quilts from a distance. Don't look at the individual materials---because they will shock you. But once they are washed and sewn together something miraculous happens.....they sing like an operatic chorus. The patterns aren't complicated, but his materials compliment each other to make the sum of the whole much more than it's parts. The book has clear instructions and great photography of the finished quilts. The book is as good as the previous ones.

Kaffe Fassett again deluges the quilter's sense of color and pattern in these traditional quilts both in the text and photography. The quilts are photographed in the island of Malta against rich backgrounds of color and texture. This book is truly a feast for the eyes. Also included are instructions, complete with the fabrics used, and templates. As a fairly new quilter, I especially appreciated the finishing instructions, which included the color of thread and quilting pattern.

I love color and pattern, especially almost anything from Kaffe Fassett. The patterns in the book are simple, not complex, especially if you use his wonderful fabrics. But the patterns can be used with any fabric you like. His patterns are written differently than most of the current strip piecing books we see these days, so that's a little more challenging at first. I have all of his books and love 'em all!

With every Kaffe Fassett book I read, I think it can't get any better, but each book is different and has more wonderful quilts and they are all over the top! This book is no exception!

KALEIDOSCOPE OF QUILTS has the perfect title! As a child, I enjoyed coloring books and crayons, but my most favorite toy was my kaleidoscope! I've been pouring over the colorful photographs in this book and enjoying my day dreams of making some of these designs. The quilts were photographed in Malta. That beautiful island in the Mediterranean lends itself as a splendid backdrop to this series of quilts. I love the way the old fashioned designs such as: fans, stars, diamonds and pinwheels are used to set off the wonderful Rowan fabric line.

Twenty different quilts are featured and besides Kaffe`s, there are designs by several other talented patchwork designers. My favorites: Victoria Fan, Hot Diamonds, Bottle Pinwheel, Deep Ohio Star, and Morning Garden all by Kaffe Fassett; the New Orleans Star by Liza Prior Lucy; Moonflowers by Ruth Eglinton and Matisse Villa by Roberta Horton. Instructions are given for making the quilts and they are rated for the level of sewing experience required. There is also a fun and interesting article by Mary Mashuta featuring some of her colorful quilt creations.

The author continues to share with us his ideas for dynamic color. It is okay to use those large florals and striped patterns in the same quilt! Another book of awesome, beautiful quilts to make. The instructions are concise and easy to read. All the templated needed to complete the projects are included.

A brilliant book - inspirational and challenging - very well priced - something the same would cost like $80 or so here in OZ.

Those who love Kaffe's work will love this book -
