You know I can never resist any book Kaffe designs be it quilting, knitting, mosaic, whatever. The man sees the world in pure colour and never ceases to inspire and excite me into a colourful creative frenzy!
Ooh I love this Barcode quilt by Kaffe Fassett.
I might need to buy a kit for this one!!
This book does it for me again. Full of delicious quilts photographed in beautiful locations throughout an outdoor museum of period houses in Stockholm, giving added detail and beauty to each page.
A stunning quilt called Headlights by Liza Prior Lucy
Apart from Kaffe himself, various quilt makers have contributed to the book including Roberta Horton, Mary Mashuta, Liza Prior Lucy, Brandon Mably and others. There are also some interesting process photographs and info showing how Kaffe and Pauline Smith work on the quilt designs for his book.
Romantic Shawl by Mary Mashuta, love that green!
Ooh I love the carnival horse on this page...!
Beach by Kaffe Fassett.
Can't you imagine taking this quilt on a picnic?!
The other book I received recently was Sarah Fielke's (The Last Piece) Quilting From Little Things...
This is another gorgeous book, beautifully photographed with clear instructions and a good how to section at the back.
The Night Garden quilt. Beautiful!!In the book Sarah presents the quilts in pairs....a dolly quilt and a larger quilt, both using the same techniques. This is a great idea if you want to learn something new...begin with the dolly quilt and progress to the larger one to reinforce your new skills.
I'm thrilled with my new books and know I will get much inspiration from both of them. Now I'm saving some pennies for the new Amy Butler fabrics due for release next month called Lark. Have you seen them yet? They made my heart skip a beat!!!
