Information on 'Kaffe Quilts Again'

kaffe-quilts-again.jpgKaffe Quilts Again
 

Kaffe Fassett takes 20 of his favourite quilt blocks from his own unique series of patchwork and quilting books with Rowan and recolours them with the new collection of Rowan fabrics. Photographed in a simple village in the heart of rural Bulgaria, they create a stunning array of colour contrasts, harmonies and shapes, giving quilters the chance to see a master colourist and his team of designers at work. Kaffe's desire to recreate these designs with new fabrics cam after seeing how his students often came up with novel versions of his original designs and he felt impelled to do the same.

The resulting new collection, chosen by Kaffe from his own an his team of designers' original designs, is a scintillating lesson in how to use colour. The new fabrics, from the stripes and prints of Kaffe's own designs. Philip Jacobs' bold florals, and Brandon Mably's more geometric designs, bring a wonderful touch of novelty and freshness as Kaffe's use of exciting new Marque Stripes fabric in both his Crazy Corners and Marque Chevrons quilts demonstrates so well. Once again, Kaffe's talented team - Liza Prior Lucy, Roberta Horton, Mary Mashuta, Pauline Smith and Brandon Mably - lend their individual talents to the mix and the results are some wonderfully diverse and exciting new colourways.

Kaffe Fassett's Mosaic

mosaic-1.jpg

Mosaic is a medium... ...that can utilize so much that is undervalued or thrown away in our society. The wonderful patterns created by repetition of rubbish-tip items reminds us of elegant ethnic decoration. A simple spoon, key or cup handle repeated acquires a magic, hypnotic musical rhythm. Once people start to play in this simple way, they spot opportunities everywhere. I hope this book can help to free the inner artist in you so you can find joy in expression. - Kaffe Fassett

Kaffe Fassett's Knitting

knitting-1.jpg

My own story in the knitting world is a graphic example of 'ignorance is bliss'. Having spent most of my life, until the age of 28, as a painter of still life and portraits, I had no experience of needlework. Often I would find myself drooling over some richly woven or embroidered cloth in a still life and wonder how on earth it was made.Now at that time, in the early sixties, there was a taboo against 'serious' artists dabbling in the crafts.
