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.

I like Kaffe Fassett qults, and this book has many beautiful ones. I don't make copies, but I like to look at his quilts for ideas. They are really bright and colorful. If you want to replicate the quilts in the book, many of the fabrics will be out of print. However you can easily substitute similar ones from other Kaffe lines.

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 has become a bit of a legend in the craft world, and his exuberant color sense is most of the reason why. This is a 2007 book, and the cover quilt is probably the least interesting. He uses simple shapes and east piecing for the most part, relying on richly colored fabrics to generate impact. The quilts are gorgeous and lush, inspiring for even the most jaded crafter.
It's immediately obvious that he has a romanticized image of rustic areas of the world, and of the lives led there, that can only come from never having lived that life. I understand how this happens, but having grown up in that lifestyle, I don't share his misty-eyed reverence. This sense is apparently why all the quilt designs still use templates, even in current editions. It's fine for advanced quilters who use the designs as inspiration only, and create quilts using their existing knowledge, but beginners will be overwhelmed. Not only by the baffling presence of templates in a rotary world, but by the lack of complete instruction. There are 3-4 full-page pictures of each quilt in different settings, with a mere page of the most basic directions.
As an inspiration book, this is a winner, and a design book to help you make quilts, less so.
