It's time to take a look at another book off of my bookshelf - and today, I'm going for COLOR! And what can possibly be more colorful than a book full of Kaffe Fassett quilts? So here's our book for today...
Now, I'll be the first to admit that I tend to find Kaffe Fassett quilts to be a bit over the top as far as pattern goes - but I adore the colors! Deep, saturated wonderful color! This book takes twenty quilts from previous Kaffe Fassett books and re-creates them in different color ways.
The quilts in this book were photographed in a small village in Bulgaria, and the scenery is luscious. Lots of rustic visual texture to contrast with the highly geometric quilts by Kaffe.
Aren't these colors just amazing?
There's a large section of the book devoted to beautiful pictures of the finished quilts against the backdrop of a Bulgarian village, and then pages devoted to the directions for each quilt. A benefit to the more experienced quilter, this book only has a very short section devoted to quilting basics. Most of its 144 pages are filled with colorful quilt-y goodness!
And this quilt is my personal favorite....
Look at those beautiful hexies!
I have this pretty stack of fabric set aside specifically for this quilt - I'm thinking it may be my fall quilt project!
I highly recommend this book if you love color - it is a joy to read simply for the beautiful photography and over-the-top colors! But it also has some really striking quilts and I've got several of them on my bucket list. I will probably make them out of something other than Kaffe Fassett fabrics, but I think they'll still be pretty special!
So that's what's on my bookshelf this week! Have you looked at yours lately?
PS - be sure to come back next week, when I review something a little different! I think I can guarantee you'll love it!
