Overview

Che bella Kaffe's inspiration for the 20 new quilts in this book was drawn from the exquisite, richly colored villages of Cinque Terre on the Italian Riviera. The region, with its terracotta walls and handsome black and white churches set off by jewel-like glimpses of the Mediterranean, is beautifully reflected in the colors and patterns created by Kaffe and his team of designers.

The glorious array of designs featured in Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in Italy are all made using classic as well as new fabrics from the Kaffe Fassett Fabric Collection--subtle or bold, simple or complex, all of the designs come together with emblematic Kaffe Fassett flair. Choose from the delicious ice-cream colors and traditional piecing of Kaffe's own Lacy Log Cabin, the bold and contrasting colors and forms of Scaffold, the almost dizzying complexity of Chiaroscuro, with its four-in-one style piecing, and many more eye-catching designs.

In addition to the gallery of quilts, the book provides detailed information on how to make each featured quilt, along with general practical patchwork and quilting information and a visual summary of Kaffe's latest fabrics.

Quilters and armchair travelers will appreciate the latest offering from textile designer and quilter Fassett, in which vibrant, colorful quilts are photographed among beautifully quaint scenes from five fishing villages along the Italian Rivera. In these seductive photographs, quilts drape over, lie atop, and depend down from the sea walls, foundations, and balconies of the villages. The 20 quilts redefine traditional patternsrail fences, tumbling blocks, columns, Dresden plateswith bright fabrics, front and back. The books first part presents a rotogravure of the quilts in the villages. The second offers assembly diagrams, with tips for the average quilter. At the end are templates, brief general instructions, and a glossary. The vivid photos of the quilts amid their source of inspiration will get quilters creative juices flowing. Color photos.
