Back Cover Information

"Kaffe's patterns are deceptively simple... His aim is to inspire the quiltmaker to think of combining colors into unusual and original palettes." -San Francisco Chronicle

With patchwork now more popular than ever, Kaffe Fassett, renowned for his amazing color palettes and innovative designs, is the ideal artist to open up a rich new vein of possibilities in this exciting craft. In Passionate Patchwork, Kaffe has seized the opportunity to delve deeply in the intricate arrangement of pattern, color, and prints,. Inside you'll find:

  • A fresh, contemporary approach to patchwork
  • Some of Kaffe's stunning fabric designs created especially for use in patchwork
  • Over 20 main designs, together with a wealth of variations, include everything from full-size quilts to cushion covers and baby quilts
  • Detailed instructions and clear colored piecing diagrams for every quilt
  • Templates for tracing and basic start-to-finish directions in a special chapter

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.
