    Another book by Kaffe Fassett filled with beautiful quilts and inspiring ideas. After reading each of his books, I immediately want to own it, since I generally read books from by wonderful public library system. Like many of his books, it is out of print, and the search for an affordable copy begins.

    Not just patterns, this is a journey through color, chock full of inspiration. I really loved seeing how Kaffe works, who he works with, and some of the thought processes. Yes, it's a treat for the eye, even if you don't end up making any of these, it is certainly worth reading...fabric porn!

    I don't always like Kaffee Fassett's style of quilting (or the color combination) he uses, but there are a few quilts in here that are beautiful. "Rattan Squares" is a simple, simple quilt (my favorite kind, i think) that is completed by the quilting. The quilting creates smaller squares out of the larger prints - sort of like saving yourself the time of cutting and piecing those tiny squares. I also really liked the dark, set-on-point, squares of "Illuminated Lattice."

The quilting creates smaller squares out of the larger prints - sort of like saving yourself the time of cutting and piecing those tiny squares. I also really liked the dark, set-on-point, squares of "Illuminated Lattice." This quilt has four triangles of fabric outlined by dark strips - all set-on-point. Very nice. But, my favorite (even though I probably would never make it), is the "Imari Plate." Inspired by the typical blue and white Scandanavian plate, this design has a focus in the center and is surrounded by different borders - all flowers, etc. He does not use blue and white, though, I think that would be beautiful. Instead, he uses flowers and squares and triangles and 8-point start to make an impressive layout. Borrowed from the Alachua County Library.

    I've long loved Kaffee Fassett's fabrics, bold quilt designs and jewel tones. This work is unique in that it describes Fassett's design process and shows how he works with the quilter who executes his designs. Ad added bonus of the work are the photographs of Fassett's quilts against the brilliant folk architecture and cultural artifacts of Sweden.

    The best part of this was the section that showed the design process that led to some of these quilts. I also liked that in addition to the artistic photos showing the quilts in and around the historic Swedish buildings there was also a studio photo of each quilt showing the entire layout. The advertisement vibe to this is a bit too strong for my taste; all of the quilts are made from fabrics that Kaffe and his studio design and profit from and the supplies lists indicate which prints in which c The best part of this was the section that showed the design process that led to some of these quilts.

    I love the introduction of wide stripes in quilting. Instead of quilting the solids together for wide stripe view in quilts, the fabric itself creates that look. This simplifies the quilting process, saving time. This book uses a selection of fabrics to make the suggested designs thereby also simplifying the buying and cutting of fabric.

    Okay, so I bought this book because so many people are so ga-ga for Kaffe Fassett's quilts and fabric, and I wanted to see what it was all about. It is a very nice book with wonderful photos of fabrics, quilts, and the inspiration of Sweden. For all the vibrand colors and great photographs, this just isn't my style. If you already love Kaffe Fassett you will probably also love this book.

    beautiful and inspiring. These bright colored quilts were great to pore over on a gray winter day. The instructions look very clear and most of the designs are simple, requiring only straight-line machine piecing, which I prefer.
