An exquisite quilt collection from the world-renowned textile designer Kaffe Fassett. He’s an international sensation –– who has been commissioned by British royalty, top American fashion designers, and the Royal Shakespeare Company for his skillful eye, masterful technique, and dedication to impeccable detail. It’s no wonder that anything with his name tied to it flies off the shelves, draws crowds, and inspires thousands. In Kaffe Fassett’s Heritage Quilts, the legendary talent turns his attention to a collection of 20 notable 18th- and 19th-century quilts – and reinvents them for today. Each quilt is lovingly and respectfully redesigned in the bold, contemporary, vibrant fabrics designed by Fassett himself, as well as designers Philip Jacobs and Brandon Mably.
You, too, can create the 20 remarkable, historic quilts recreated by Fassett. In addition to 100 rich photographs of the quilts themselves, which you will pore over again and again, Kaffe Fassett’s Heritage Quilts contains full step-by-step piecing instructions, 80 detailed diagrams, and patchwork how-to tips to refresh techniques or build new ones. Each project is an individual master class featuring vivid photos of the original quilt as well as the new finished project, a materials list, plus detailed instruction including useful tips, color diagrams, and templates for piecing the quilt together.
Discover the timeless beauty of rare quilts and traditional favorites, all drawn from an historic collection. This latest volume in Kaffe’s successful patchwork and quilting series was inspired by his collaboration with the British Quilt Museum. Kaffe chose a special collection of traditional quilts and redesigned them in his latest fabrics for a recent exhibition at the Quilters Guild Museum at York in the UK. Kaffe Fassett’s Heritage Quilts is an education in history as much as it is an impressive how-to quilting guide!
