Back Cover Information

"Kaffe Fassett's Museum Quilts is an inspiring showcase of extraordinary color combinations and dramatic use of patterns. In his perfect style, Kaffe combines a fresh contemporary look with the timeless quality of Victoria and Albert quilt masterpieces. It is simply delicious."
— Alex Anderson, host of Simply Quilts, HGTV

"Kaffe Fassett is an artist completely, unabashedly attuned to the luscious details of pattern, design and color. He is a true visionary and huge inspiration to me and thousands of others looking to tap into their creativity."
— Amy Butler, contributing editor, Country Living

"A pleasing mixture of pattern levels in a book inspired by antique quilts - for new quilters, or quilters in a hurry, there are super easy and fast patterns. Other patterns will be interesting challenges for experienced quilters."
— Susan C. Druding, Quilting Guide at About.com

Inside Cover Information

Past meets present in this dazzling collection of new quilts from design genius Kaffe Fassett. Drawing inspiration from the textile treasures of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London's world-famous decorative arts museum, Kaffe has created 23 gorgeous new patchwork designs. Each is a sympathetic interpretation of an antique source, using updated color schemes and contemporary sewing techniques. All the designs are easily accessible to today's quilters.

The patchworks fall into three categories. First come Utility Quilts, employing large, simple patch shapes cut from charming prints. Traditional pieces follow, encompassing popular heritage quilt formats reborn here in fresh, modern interpretations. Finally come the irresistible Showpiece Quilts, incorporating applique to create breathtaking showstoppers.

Each design has full instructions and easy-to-follow colored piecing diagrams. All the basic techniques are covered, from start to finish, including simple applique and quilting methods, and the book is lavishly illustrated throughout with close-ups of each quilt gorgeous photography on location, and clear color design templates.

About the Author: Kaffe Fassett is a best-selling author and designer who passionately believes that anyone can participate in and enjoy creative crafts. He regularly shares his vision of the decorative arts in his lecture tours, exhibitions all over the world, workshops, television appearances and books. His work formed the basis of the first one-man show of a living textile designer ever to show at the V & A in London. Designing for companies such as Designers Guild and Rowan Yarns, Kaffe has launched a luscious new collection of cotton fabrics specifically for quilting. His books include Patchwork, Passionate Patchwork, Kaffe Fassett's Pattern Library, Kaffe's Classics, Family Album, and Mosaics, all published by The Taunton Press.

Liza Prior Lucy collaborated with Kaffe on his previous patchwork books and is a quilt, needlepoint, and knitting designer of many years' experience. She lives in Pennsylvania.
