Using the backdrop of Burano, the tiny Venetian island famous for its lace and colorful painted houses, Kaffe Fassett uses the murals, bridges, canals and boats, as inspiration to showcase his newest published collection of quilt designs from the Kaffe Fassett Studio.
Kaffe Fassett’s 22nd book Kaffe Fassett’s Quilts in Burano includes a collection of 19 quilts using both new and classic fabric designs from the Kaffe Fassett Collective by Free Spirit Fabrics collections. Scheduled for release on August 18th, this 144 page book includes instructional text, diagrams and templates to make each featured quilt in addition to basic piecing techniques for less experienced quilters.
Two classic fabrics, purple Bali Brocade and Onion Rings in Cocoa, make a repeat appearance in a summer pudding blend of pinks and purples, plums and spots, enabling Fruits of the Forest Quilt Kit to be offered by Sew Celebrate. Quilts in Burano is available separately or get free shipping when you combine the book with the quilt kit.
In addition to Fruits of the Forest (Summer Pudding), Bali Brocade is also used as a fantastic background to Kaffe’s sumptuous Shimmer Star quilt with its ripples of pattern in contrasting prints. His two versions of a very simple quilt,comes in two very different colorways. Hot Steps is a riot of color, whereas by contrast its sister quilt, Cool Steps, in dusty blues, greens, and greys has an dreamy quality. Liza Prior Lucy’s rich and dark Turkish Coffee quilt, with its hint of Eastern promise, fussy cuts Kaffe’s new Turkish Delight fabric to brilliant effect.
