The landmark quilting book from a modern-day quilting legend.
For more than two decades, Kaffe Fassett’s sumptuously textured, vibrantly colored designs have thrilled readers and inspired them to pile on color and break the rules. In Glorious Patchwork—one of his most spectacular and original books—Kaffe presents more than 25 designs that draw on the essence of his colorwork. Divided into five color themes—ranging from soft pastels and leafy gardens to bold circus hues—these stunning designs bear Kaffe’s unmistakable stamp. Every chapter includes projects with varying difficulty, so beginners and experienced quilters alike can replicate the masterpiece quilts inside.
Glorious Patchwork represents yet another craft breakthrough for Kaffe Fassett, who has fearlessly conquered the worlds of color knitting, needlepoint, and rug hooking. Here he teams up with quilt designer Liza Prior Lucy to produce a series of color-drenched patchwork designs that have a powerful impact and a subtle, pleasing symmetry. Fassett's text is chattier and more interesting than in his previous works; he is more capable of communicating the inspiration he finds in the natural patterns that the rest of us hardly notice. This is a book that will thrill textile and fiber craftspeople.
