Description - Kaffe Fassett's V&A Quilts by Kaffe Fassett

In this dazzling book, Kaffe Fassett presents 23 new patchwork designs all inspired by treasures from London's world-famous decorative arts museum. Kaffe breathes new life into old masterpieces by updating the colourways and employing, where necessary, new patchwork techniques. The designs fall loosely into three separate groups. The utility quilts employ large simple patch shapes cut from charming prints; the traditional pieces encompass popular heritage patchwork formats, reborn here in fresh modern colours; and the irresistible showpiece designs incorporate applique- to create dazzling showstoppers. Kaffe's fabric sources include his own ever-expanding fabric collection, reproduction vintage prints, antique scraps, contemporary quilting prints of every description and toile de jouy. The designs are easily accessible to today's quilters, with Kaffe's sympathetic interpretations echoing the magic of the originals but employing contemporary techniques. This book is an inspiration.
