This wonderful book will be great addition to my quilting collection and will provide much needed inspiration for this coming winter. I will likely spend it all quilting, so who better to hang with than Kaffe? Some of the quilting instructions/fabric choices seem challenging, but I am determined to tackle at least a few of the designs in this book.I was so bored with matchy-matchy fabric coordinating of traditional quilting (in spite of my great respect for traditional methods)but find that Kaffee has inspired me to new heights!!! Hooray for that!!! I have a lot of pre-cuts in my stash, bit I have dared to mix them up and try different combinations, although Kaffe's own line of fabric is simply awesome and I have purchased a nice selection as well... I took a gamble to buy a few of his books since "look inside this book" isn't always available as an option, and I find that it really doesn't matter because they are ALL spectacular! This one in particular intrigued me since I'd like to make the quilt on the cover (pickle dish quilt). I think I will have to own all of his books *sigh*
one life
Being a Kaffe Fassett fan, I did like the Fassett quilt patterns included in this book, but they are not as interesting or complicated as his previous designs. Complicated? Well, yes, that's why you want his designs - they usually are very complicated and challenging. If you wanted an easy design, you wouldn't be buying Kaffe Fassett. But, as stated, some of these designs are easier. Not all the designs are Fassett. Of the 20 in the book, 9 are Fassett. Eight other designers are featured including Lisa Prior Lucy. These designs are not bad either - most easier than Fassett's - and all of them feature Fassett's latest fabric collection.

Included in the book, as with other Fassett books, are pages showing all the designs of the fabric collection used in the quilts in the book. I really like having this information because it is really Fassett's unique fabrics that make the quilt designs so interesting. If your quilt shops don't carry his fabrics (and many do not), no problem. Just Google "Kaffe Fassett fabrics", and you'll find a number of places where you can purchase them.
I am in love with the Kaffe Fassett fabrics, and his patterns fit the fabrics perfectly. The interesting shapes in the fabric, and the bold colors, make them exciting to work with. There's always the anticipation of how the finished product will look, never a dull moment, and it's always a fabulous surprise! This book contains piecing, paper piecing, and applique projects. Most are projects for the experienced quilter. I'm looking forward to making them all!
Madder Bassett is a renowned fabric designer. His books are colorful, his designs creative. Each book contains patterns with fabric choices and amounts needed. And, instructions for each step to completing a quilt. FABULOUS!!
If your having a hard time with colors then this is a very good book for you to sit down with a take a good look at. I find that I will have to make all the quilts in the book but I am starting out with the front cover which is called a Pickle Dish. It is different then other Pickle Dishes that I have done. I will be using Kaffe's fabrics for other patterns also. Kaffe's colors give you a different way of looking at fabrics. They are fun and cheerful and would be a great asset to any quilter or sewer's collection of fabrics!
Very nice book with beautiful pictures of quilts. Included instructions are easy to use
I've quilted in "safe" colors for many years. To expand my color sense I'm buying books like Kaffe Fassett's and WOW! does he ever expand your color sense. All those "wild" colors and patterns come together in his quilts. I was amazed at the emotion some of his quilts invoke. QUILT ROMANCE is absolutely great and inspiring. A great way to get out of your quilting rut.
I love Kaffee Fasset's books, I have most of them and plan to have the 'rest' of them in the future ... :) This was one Seller that I particularly want to thank. She has great communication with her Buyers, she shipped this book faster than lightening, I couldn't believe how fast I had it in my hands. She took extra steps in her packaging which always adds a nice, personal touch and she also included a free gift with my book. I definitely will shop with her again and have absolutely NO problem recommending her to other Buyers. This Seller is a real asset to Amazon!
